Our unique treatment blends conventional and oriental methods with botanical medicines.

We apply the principles of the art and science of medicine by modernizing and standardizing the theory of TCM treatment and combining it with naturopathic interventions. We successfully treat hemorrhoids and other anorectal problems by taking advantage of the body’s natural ability to heal itself without the use of major surgery.

Our Founder

Born in Luzhou, China, Dr. Chen Guoyi has dedicated his life to the “Mastering of Great Skills to Alleviate the Suffering of Patients.” It is this dedication that drove Dr. Chen to create his unique treatment method for hemorrhoids/piles and fistulas called Guoyi Proctology Therapy. In 1979, he moved to Xi’an and established the first Piles and Fistula hospital in the region.

Word of mouth spread quickly and by 1980, Dr. Chen had successfully cured tens of thousands of patients. He was later presented with the award of excellence in Medical Technology and Development by the government of Xi’an.

From these humble beginnings, Dr. Chen has established himself as a preeminent expert in the field, having served as Director of Piles and Fistula at Beijing Chinese Medicine University, as well as Chief Physician of China Oriental Hospital. His techniques and treatments have been introduced throughout the world, including at Columbia University in New York.

In recent years, Dr. Chen has been invited to give lectures in Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Canada, and the United States on the topic of promoting Traditional Chinese Medicine worldwide.

About Guoyi Proctology Therapy

Since 1979, we have treated thousands of patients suffering from anorectal diseases across Canada and Australia. Guoyi Proctology Therapy, developed by Dr. Chen Guoyi, combines a minor surgical procedure with the exclusive Ba Zhi San Series ointment to resolve anal diseases from the root, including internal hemorrhoids (Grade 1-4) and external hemorrhoids (Grade 1-4). Our body has natural healing functions, and based on each patient’s unique symptoms, the treatment plan may apply minor surgical procedures and Ba Zhi San ointments as part of the therapy healing progress. 

Minor Surgery

Some levels of hemorrhoids or other anal diseases may require minor surgery combined with the Ba Zhi San ointment. The surgery is an in-office 15-40 minute procedure with zero bedrest or post-treatment care required. If your hemorrhoids prolapse for a long period of time and cannot be reinserted into your anus manually, you may experience a burning sensation or pain when defecating. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is likely caused by hemorrhoids, varicose veins, blood hemorrhaging, thrombosis, and/or restricted tissue circulation.

Ba Zhi San Ointment

Ba Zhi San herbal ointment application is a multi-series cream-based treatment. Using a specially formulated botanical formula, Ba Zhi San ointment eases anal pain as fast as possible and stops bleeding effectively. The series of ointments facilitates the healing process by closing off wounds and allowing new tissue to grow. Proper muscle function and connective tissue is restored, and the anal condition is remedied. Its pharmacological effect is achieved by blocking the venous blood supply and removing the purulent gas and moisture from the body. The hemorrhoids will automatically dry out and detach at the root.

A Letter From the Clinic

There is an ancient Chinese philosophy that says slow is fast. The base of our medical philosophy: 慢病缓治. We wish we could find the same poetic expression for it. Chronic disease is treated by a meek strategy. Speaking of hemorrhoids, most cases that come to our clinic are quite serious or severe. Patients hope to get rid of it as fast as possible. One of the most common questions we are asked is, “Does the doctor surgically remove hemorrhoids?” When we mention our Ba Zhi San ointments, they sound a bit disappointed and respond to us, “I am tired of ointments. Nothing works for me.” The Ba Zhi San series of ointments are unlike any other. They target hemorrhoids(piles)/abscess/fistula and help in the growth of healthy tissue for long-term benefits. With Ba Zhi San, the hemorrhoids will fall off within 7-10 days, if you think 7-10 days is slow, compared to 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 years, for long-term benefits, we would say: slow is fast.

There is an ancient Jewish philosophy that says fight a good fight. The most impressive suffering story is Job. After a devastating tragedy, Job sustained to the end and recieved double blessings. After being optimistic and patient, Jacob built up a fortune and married his beloved wife. Personally, we believe life has a tendency to “go down.” If you don’t discipline yourself, you tend to like to sit like a couch potato: eating more and more

junk and disliking exercises. If you don’t take care of your garden, it will grow up with weeds. If you don’t watch over your soul, it will be attacked by passive entertainment. There is a contemporary Jewish Rabbi with a podcast called Happy Warrior. I have to stand as a warrior to fight the negative force, but we also need to be kept happy on the battlefield.

Everyone deserves a wonderful life, we do! We believe!

We got up early, we expect the sunshine of the day.

We go to bed; we expect a sweet dream.

We work hard for playing hard.

We always want the luckiest card in our hands.

Why are those attitudes related to hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are related to quality of life. Hemorrhoids are not something life-threatening, but they are damaging to your quality of life. One of the most common comments expressed from the patients who are under the treatment is, “I am getting my life back!”

Hemorrhoids don’t only cause unbearable pain and frightening bleeding; they also affect people’s emotions. People who are suffering from hemorrhoids tend to be cranky, emotional, irritable, less confident, and even depressed. It doesn’t only affect the big motions, it affects sitting and walking. Turning right, moving left, stepping forward, going backwards, bending down or stretching out, you never know how this small area on the lower body plays such an important role in our daily life.

We want to thank all our patients.

Thank you for your trust.

Thank you for your respect.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank you for your commitment.

Thank you for your patience.

You are an unbeatable happy warrior to win the battle and you deserve sincere Congratulations!

We hope to not see you in the clinic again with the same medical issue, but we love to see you shining in your next stage of life!
