What is the STARR Procedure?

The STARR (Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection) Procedure is a form of perineal surgery. It is particularly suitable for partial thickness mucosal prolapse associated with an anterior rectocele prolapse.

The STARR procedure is a stapled mucosectomy repair. It involves a circular staple which removes a section of prolapsing mucosa. This procedure is relatively painless and has less potential complications because there are no external incisions.

Possible complications that may occur after a STARR procedure include bleeding, leaks or infection, urine retention, incontinence, fistula (pouch) formation or dyspareunia (painful intercourse).
