Dr. Brenner utilizes the Ellman Surgitron, a unique instrument that has a cool tip, so thermal damage to the underlying tissue is able to be minimized or even eliminated. During this procedure, anal skin tags are excised, resulting in a smooth and natural looking perianal area.
The Surgitron is unparalleled in its finesse and no-touch technique. The Surgitron provides superior precision and cutting (compared to a scalpel), less thermal injury, thereby promoting faster and less painful healing.
