Our physicians offer a full range of state-of-the-art treatments from minimally invasive to surgical. The majority of hemorrhoids can be treated with minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures.
- Non-surgical treatments – Relatively painless with no downtime.
- Ligation/rubber-banding – A rubber band is placed over the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply.
- Infrared or laser photocoagulation – In-office procedure using infrared light to cause hemorrhoids to harden and shrivel. This is effective at the earliest stages of internal bleeding but is not the most effective procedure.
- Surgical treatments – For a small percentage who don’t respond to non-surgical treatments or have large hemorrhoids, all outpatient procedures.
- Hemorrhoidectomy – Surgical removal of hemorrhoids under sedation or general anesthesia.
- Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) – Protruding or prolapsed tissue is lifted and replaced in its original position.
- Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (THD) – Use of ultrasound guidance to locate the arteries feeding blood to the hemorrhoid which are sutured to cut off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid.
