- What is a Hemorrhoid?
A hemorrhoid is a swollen or inflamed vein located in the lower rectum or anus. It can develop due to increased pressure in the rectal area, which can occur from straining during bowel movements, pregnancy, sitting for prolonged periods, or chronic constipation. Hemorrhoids can cause symptoms such as itching, pain, bleeding during bowel movements, and a lump or swelling near the anus.
There is no single treatment for all hemorrhoids; the physician must evaluate each patient individually. The good news is, with the advances in modern medicine, we can offer more comfortable, less-invasive treatments for a variety of hemorrhoid conditions. An office visit with our providers may produce a new and simple, non-surgical answer.
Hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove hemorrhoids, which are swollen and inflamed blood vessels in the rectal or anal area. It is typically recommended for severe or recurring hemorrhoids that have not responded to non-surgical treatments. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the hemorrhoidal tissue and may also repair any underlying anal or rectal structures if necessary.
Infrared coagulation (IRC) is a non-surgical treatment option for hemorrhoids, offering a safe and effective solution. It involves the use of infrared light to coagulate and shrink the swollen blood vessels that cause hemorrhoids. This outpatient procedure is minimally invasive, well-tolerated, and typically requires little to no recovery time, making it a convenient and accessible option for individuals seeking relief from hemorrhoidal symptoms. Since its government approval in 1984, IRC has been used successfully by over 10,000 physicians in the United States.
THD Procedure for Hemorrhoids
The THD (Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization) procedure is a minimally invasive technique used for the treatment of hemorrhoids. It involves the use of Doppler ultrasound to precisely locate and ligate the arteries supplying the hemorrhoidal cushions, effectively reducing blood flow to the hemorrhoids. This procedure is performed without the need for surgical excision, offering a less painful and quicker recovery compared to traditional hemorrhoidectomy methods.
Rubber Band Ligation
Rubber band ligation is a minimally invasive procedure commonly used for the treatment of hemorrhoids. It involves placing small rubber bands at the base of the hemorrhoidal tissue to cut off its blood supply. As a result, the hemorrhoid shrinks and eventually falls off, typically within a week, providing relief from symptoms such as bleeding, swelling, and discomfort. This outpatient procedure is safe, effective, and has a low risk of complications, making it a popular choice for managing internal hemorrhoids.
