Constipation - Treatments

Treatment depends on the cause, severity and duration of the patient’s constipation. All patients will receive conservative treatment with a combination of:
  • Dietary and lifestyle modifications
  • Laxatives
Only if the above do not yield significant improvements will more specialized treatment be offered in a graduated fashion, including:
  • Biofeedback exercises
  • Surgical correction of abnormal colonic movements (eg. rectopexy)
  • Surgical removal of the entire colon where all other treatment has failed
