Secca Procedure

Secca Therapy is an innovative treatment option for patients suffering from FI. Secca does not utilize implants, incisions or stitches and takes approximately 60 minutes. Secca is performed in a day case setting. Secca is for patients who have failed to respond to first line therapies, who are not surgical candidates, or do not want to undergo invasive surgery or a foreign body implantation.

How Secca Works

1. Energy is delivered to the tissue of the anal canal
2. Multiple small tissue contractions are formed
3. Anal sphincter function is significantly restored

Minimally invasive colo proctologists and Colorectal surgeons are the primary physicians who treat FI, patients. After diagnosis and screening your Surgeon will be able to recommend various treatments that should be attempted first such as fiber supplements, medication or biofeedback. If you fail these conservative measures, your Surgeon can recommend other options, such as the Secca procedure or surgery.

Most Secca patients start to see an improvement in 4 to 6 weeks; however, for some people the improvement may take as much as 6 months to be noticeable. Secca patients may have some discomfort for up to a week, but generally return to their normal activities within 1-2 days.

FI is a highly treatable condition and should not be accepted as a natural side-effect of aging or childbirth. Seek help, or encourage those you know are suffering from Bowel Control Disorder, to seek help from a qualified physician
