Procedures Performed

Dr. Shacket says..

Dr Rick Shacket is the only Board Certified Proctologist in the State of Arizona.

The practice of Proctology consists of the treatment of diseases and conditions originating within or affecting the anus, rectum, perianal and perirectal areas, and related or complicating conditions, including colonoscopy procedures. Proctology is a shortage specialty, and there is not a Board Certified Proctologist in most cities.

A Proctologist is "more specialized" than a Colon & Rectal Surgeon. Whereas the Proctologist spends 95% of his or her time treating anal and rectal diseases - the Colon & Rectal Surgeon spends most of his or her time treating colon diseases, and performing major-surgery, such as removing colorectal cancer and other tumors through small incisions in the abdomen.

Dr Shacket utilizes the most sophisticated technology to diagnose and treat anal, rectal, and colon diseases. He uses laser surgery and high-resolution colonoscopy & anoscopy to diagnose and treat colon polyps, hemorrhoids, and HPV related warts & neoplasia. In most cases we can give you the service or procedure you need on the same day as your initial visit.
