Proctology or coloproctology (Gr. πρωκτός (proktós) for “anus”, κόλον (kólon) for “intestine” and -logy) is a medical sub-specialty dealing with the diseases of the rectum and the anal canal. A physician who focuses on proctology is called a proctologist. The use of the additional designation “proctology” requires several years of further training with an authorized instructor and an oral examination before the State Medical Association.
After completing the prescribed further training (WO of April 24, 2004) and passing the examination before an expert committee of the Bavarian Medical Association, Dr. Michael Scherer was awarded the additional title of proctology in April 2006.
Even before this date, Dr. Scherer had already set himself a further focus of work in proctology. His expertise, based on many years of experience, regular further training and daily application, benefits the patients of the practice clinic. All established and new treatment and examination methods (endosonography, surgery according to LONGO) are performed.
