Hemorrhoids Treatment

We offer a large variety of techniques for the treatment of Hemorrhoids, including PAINLESS techniques that avoids the need for surgery.

The most common PAINLESS techniques to treat hemorrhoids are Rubber Band Ligation and Infrared Coagulation, both offered in our office. Our physicians have done literally thousands of these procedures with excellent outcome.

Often described as “varicose veins of the anus and rectum”, hemorrhoids are enlarged, bulging blood vessels in and about the anus and lower rectum. There are two types of hemorrhoids: external and internal, which refer to their location.

Understanding Hemorrhoids Types and Treatment

External (outside) hemorrhoids develop near the anus and are covered by very sensitive skin. These are usually painless. However, if a blood clot (thrombosis) develops in an external hemorrhoid, it becomes a painful, hard lump. The external hemorrhoid may bleed if it ruptures.

Internal (inside) hemorrhoids develop within the anus beneath the lining. Painless bleeding and protrusion during bowel movements are the most common symptom. However, an internal hemorrhoid can cause severe pain if it is completely “prolapsed” – protrudes from the anal opening and cannot be pushed back inside.
