Welcome to Sydney Proctology

Sydney Proctology is a medical service run by Dr Darren Gold. It is dedicated to dealing with all those problems we prefer not to talk about.

Proctology is the study of diseases of the rectum and anus. It dates back to medieval times, but fortunately our knowledge and understanding of these diseases has improved over the centuries. Proctology is now a highly specialised surgical discipline.

A 14th century proctological examination

Dr Gold is a specialist colorectal surgeon with a subspecialist interest in proctology and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis). Proctological problems include haemorrhoids, anal pain, anal fissure, pilonidal sinus, anal fistula, faecal incontinence and constipation. 

To find out more about these conditions or about Dr Gold please use the links under 'various conditions' at the top of the page.
