The right therapy starts with the right doctor
Pain, burning, itching? Bleeding, protrusions or growths in the area of the buttocks and anus? Home remedies or the haemorrhoid ointment from the pharmacy have not helped? Are you worried about a serious condition?
With Dr. Hofer and his team, you are at the right address. As proctologists, we have specialised exclusively in the treatment of diseases of the anus and tailbone cysts (pilonidal sinus).
With 29 years of clinical experience, personal attention and modern surgical techniques, we will find the best possible treatment for you.
Making informed decisions
We are specialists in surgery. Consequently, surgical treatment and especially laser surgery are our core competence. Nevertheless, not every patient needs surgery. We also advise you on alternative treatment options without surgery.
We will give you a clear recommendation if an intervention seems to us to be the best treatment option. For some clinical pictures, we go new ways to be able to offer you the gentlest possible treatment. This concerns coccygeal fistula and laser treatment for haemorrhoids. In contrast, for anal f issure and anal fistula we only trust the tried and tested method of excision. Some promising developments have unfortunatelynot fulfilledthe hopes .
Just as important as a perfect surgical technique is the postoperative follow-up treatment. With this in mind, we offer LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as soft laser treatment) for convalescence to stimulate the body's healing powers at the cellular level. Magnetic field therapy is a suitable, non-invasive procedure for rehabilitation of the sphincter muscle. Laser hair removal prevents recurrences after surgery of a pilonidal sinus.

Modern therapies from laser to magnetic field
Einstein's ingenious idea of the laser allows for an unprecedented precision of treatment. Pulsating Magnetic Field (Signal) Therapy (PST) tightens connective tissue, strengthens muscle strength and sensitivity, and relieves pain.
THIS IS HOW OUR PATIENTS RATE US ON JAMEDA, PROVEN EXPERT AND GOOGLE
Finally, a few figures on our specialisation (as of quarter 4/2018, source: KVB kassenärztliche Vereinigung Bayerns): 49.5% of our patients were treated for haemorrhoids (compared to 4.8% in the specialist group of surgeons in general), 30.3% for another rectal disease (comparative value: 3.52%), 24.7% for a coccygeal fistula (comparative value: 2.8%). The average age of our patients was 39.5 years. In other words: coccygeal fistulas and haemorrhoids are by no means a symptom of old age. The gender distribution was relatively balanced with 41 % female and 59 % male patients.
