Constipation means that your bowel movements are difficult or occur less frequently than usual. At some point in their lives, almost everyone goes through it. Even if it isn't usually serious, you'll feel a lot better once your body is back on track.The average time between bowel movements differs from person to person. Some people consume them up to three times per day. Others only get them once or twice a week.However, going more than three days without one is usually excessive. After 3 days, passing your stool becomes increasingly difficult.
You may also feel the need for assistance in emptying your bowels, such as pressing on your belly or using your finger to remove the stool from your bottom.
If you have sudden constipation with abdominal pain or cramping and are unable to poop or pass gas, contact your doctor right away.

In most cases, a small number of people require medical attention for constipation, which can have serious consequences. Constipation is usually relieved by making dietary changes, lifestyle changes, adjusting toilet posture, using pre and probiotics, pelvic muscle training, adequate exercise, and taking stool softeners.
If conservative treatment does not relieve the constipation, surgery may be an option. However, it is entirely dependent on what is causing the problem. While several factors contribute to constipation, the three major subgroups are normal transit constipation, slow transit constipation, and pelvic floor dysfunction. If you have a blockage, anal fissures, or rectal prolapse, surgery can help.
In some cases, neither dietary changes nor laxatives provide relief. Obstructed Defaecation Syndrome is one of the most common types (ODS). STAPLED TRANS ANAL RECTAL RESECTION (STARR) is effective when ODS is associated with structural anomalies such as prolapse. DR. Antonio Longo, a world-renowned colorectal surgeon, invented STARR. Constipation is significantly improved when an individual performs STARR.
Dr. Ashwin Porwal was the first surgeon to perform STARR Surgery in Maharashtra, and among the first few in the country.
Dr. Porwal has trained under Dr. Longo himself.
Healing Hands Clinic currently performs the maximum number of STARR surgeries in Asia.

Dr. Ashwin Porwal, who has treated hundreds of patients with piles and chronic constipation, came up with the idea for MCDPA, which has the tagline 'SAY NO TO SURGERY.' He discovered that many of these individuals do not require surgery. In many circumstances, a conservative approach is required, combined with lifestyle changes. With these observations, he developed a treatment method - MCDPA (Medicines-Constac-Diet-Physiotherapy-Ayurveda). MCDPA's foundation is based on the use of approved scientific therapies and all-around patient care.
