AT FIRST GLANCE, COLORECTAL SURGERY AND MED-SPAS
don’t seem to go together, but they are complementary when under the expert care of Dr. Anna Toker, a colon and rectal surgeon specializing in robotic surgery and medical director of SKANDii MedSpa in Mansfield, Texas.
“At the medical spa, my nurse injectors focus on facial esthetics, nonsurgical approaches to weight loss and body sculpting in our MedGym,” Dr. Toker says. “As a colorectal surgeon, I spend a lot of time discussing diet as medical management for hemorrhoids, constipation, IBS, incontinence, and diverticulitis. Proper nutrition can improve the outcomes of my surgical patients and contribute to narcotic-free surgeries, which leads to shorter recovery times. This is why I promote whole food supplement that people can research on their own and purchase at cleanflex.kyani.com.”
“The lynch pin between the two practices is the Emsella device, designed to improve incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction,” Dr. Toker says. “A 30-minute Emsella session has the same results as 17,000 Kegel exercises, eliminating the discomfort or embarrassment of traditional pelvic floor therapy and potentially eliminating the need for pelvic floor reconstruction. I offer this service as physcial therapy billable to insurance.”
Should Emsella physical therapy fail to improve incontinence, Dr. Toker also offers Interstim, an outpatient procedure to implant a sacral nerve stimulating device, to her patients. “Whether a patient needs major surgery or not, a large portion of my discussions with patients revolve around normalizing intestinal function,” Dr. Toker says. “If major colon surgery is needed, my patients can expect a 48-hour hospital stay after robotic approaches with very few complications. I am a firm believer in education as a source of self-empowerment for your health. I post a lot of free content at my instagram channel @ask_drpooperfixer.

Federal Law requires all patients have a portal to get access to their information. You must sign all of the privacy and consent documents prior to your office visit in order to be seen. Please set up your portal when you schedule your appointment and finish the set up process. Include your allergies, medications, and medical history. All of these things are not only required for you to be seen, but make your encounter in the office more seamless and allows for a more accurate evaluation with the doctor.
We want you to have direct answers but need a little help from our Artificial Intellegence Service. When you call, this automated service allows you to leave direct messages with the doctor for quicker and more accurate responses. Click the link below to learn more!
There are several important forms that need to be signed prior to seeing the doctor. We encourage you to sign these forms online through your portal, but if this is not possible, you can download them here, sign, and bring them to our office.
We strive to stay on time with our office schedule and still dedicate time to fully evaluate all patients. Pre-appointment paperwork completion is a critical part to success. The more time you need to spend in our office signing consents and confirming your medical history, the less time we have to dedicate to your problem. The patient portal we set up for you when you make the appointment is designed to allow you to complete everything in a paperless way prior to your visit. We highly encourage you to self check-in to your appointment at least a day ahead of time, sign the consents, enter your pharmacy information, update your medical and surgical history, and even upload your insurance card and drivers license. We hope you have a seamless visit with little office waiting times. We look forward to seeing you soon!
