La Peer Health Systems has a longstanding history of providing state-of-the-art surgical procedures and high quality patient care by staffing the best in colorectal surgery. Recently, the surgical center embarked on a mission to establish specialty centers for a more focused approach to treatment and patient care. One of these centers is the new Fissure & Fistula Surgery Center of Excellence in Los Angeles.

Headed by Eiman Firoozmand, MD, the Fissure & Fistula Surgery Center of Excellence is also home to some of the best surgeons in colorectal care, including Dr. Liza M. Capiendo, Dr. Stephen Yoo, and Dr. Gary Hoffman.

“Our patients will not only receive top-notch patient care through an individualized treatment plan,” said Dr. Firoozmand, “but receive it from highly trained and experienced doctors.”

With a multi-million dollar surgical center, doctors at the Fissure & Fistula Surgery Center of Excellence will provide the latest in diagnostic and treatment options for anal fissures and anal fistulas. Through this specialized approach, patients will receive the best in care when it comes to treating and resolving their medical issues related to fissures and fistulas.

“Our doctors have years of training specific to address issues related to fissures and fistulas,” said Dr. Firoozmand. “We also prefer using minimally invasive techniques, when possible, so that our patients experience a quicker recovery process.”

Abscesses, fistulas, and fissures are fairly common complaints. Each can be uncomfortable and painful as well as possibly lead to more serious problems in the future. There are different types of fistulas and fissures, making it extremely important to seek medical attention to insure that the proper treatment is administered. Additionally, they can also be indicative of more chronic conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and a host of other disorders. The immediate treatment of these conditions is critical in decreasing the risk of infection or recurrence. The Fissure & Fistula Center of Excellence aims to provide high quality medical care to insure that these problems are treated and do not come back.

As part of its mission, the Fissure & Fistula Surgery Center of Excellence promotes public awareness for and encourages proper management of anorectal and rectal conditions, including anal fissures and anal fistulas. In an effort to further their cause, the Fissure & Fistula Surgery Center of Excellence will donate a portion of its proceeds to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), a non-profit organization focused on finding the cures for Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as improving the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases.
