Dr. Marc Brand introduces himself and describes hemorrhoids.

Dr. Brand:
My name is Marc Brand. I am a colon and rectal surgeon at Rush. I have been here for ten years, and that was after a training in Cleveland for eight years as first a general surgeon and then a colon-rectal surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic.

Hemorrhoids are normal tissue, and they serve a purpose in being able to help the finer function of the anal area in holding stool from coming out when you don’t want it to.
