Anorectal Manometry in NYC

Anorectal manometry is the most commonly performed test of anorectal function.  It provides comprehensive information about anal sphincter function, mechanism of continence and defecation, rectal sensation, rectal compliance and anorectal reflexes.

Indication for anorectal manometry may include:

  • Evaluation of refractory constipation and fecal incontinence
  • Evaluation of pelvic floor dyssynergia
  • Evaluation of Hirschprung’s disease
  • Evaluation of anatomic defects of the anal sphincter

In our center, we use High Resolution 3D anorectal manometry.

Anorectal manometry in NYC is a very simple and well-tolerated procedure performed by Dr. Veronika V. DubrovskayaThe patient does not need to undergo sedation for the anorectal manometry.   The preparation only involves a Fleet enema the morning of the procedure.  The procedure takes less than 10 minutes and is performed in our outpatient clinic in Midtown.

During the procedure, a thin flexible catheter with sensors is introduced rectally.  The sensors allow your doctor to register different pressures of internal and external anal sphincters.
