Hemorrhoid Treatments


HEMORRHOIDAL BANDING
 

During hemorrhoidal banding, your physician will place a small rubber band around the tissue just above the hemorrhoid where there are few pain sensitive nerve endings. The banding procedure works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, thereby causing the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off. Most patients will require 2-3 sessions of treatment to achieve optimal results.
 

Patients are often sedated by an anesthesiologist for the procedure, but this is not mandatory. After the procedure, you may feel a sensation of fullness or a dull ache in the rectum. This can typically be relieved by an over the counter pain medication and usually subsides completely in 6-12 hours. Many patients are pain free after the procedure.
 

There is minimal preparation required prior to hemorrhoidal Banding. Your colon must be clean in order for your physician to get the best view possible. The preparation includes up to 24 hours of following a diet consisting of clear liquids and may require an enema prior to the procedure. It is very important that your physician’s instructions be followed carefully. The quality of the preparation can affect the physician’s ability to diagnose any problems.

 

INFRARED COAGULATION SYSTEM
 

Infrared photocoagulation is a medical procedure used to treat small and medium sized hemorrhoids. During the procedure, your physician will use a device to apply an intense beam of infrared light to treat your internal hemorrhoids. The heat created by the infrared light causes scar tissue which cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. Most patients will require 2-3 sessions of treatment to achieve optimal results.
 

Patients are often sedated by an anesthesiologist for the procedure so that they do not feel pain or discomfort. However, sedation is not mandatory.
 

There is minimal preparation required prior to Infrared Coagulation. Fasting may be required for 6 hours prior to your appointment and you may require an enema prior to the procedure. It is very important that your physician’s instructions be followed carefully. The quality of the preparation can affect the physician’s ability to successfully complete the procedure.


 

ULTRAOID PAINELSS HEMMORHOID TREATMENT
 

The Ultroid® hemorrhoid treatment system is a new advancement that allows for quick, easy, painless, and effective treatment of hemorrhoids. All it takes is 10 minutes during an office visit, and you can be free of problematic hemorrhoids. There's no surgery, no anesthesia, and no preparatory procedures. Just a sense of relief knowing that you can resume your normal routine.

 

Ultroid Hemorrhoid Treatment Device

The Ultroid® device operates through a process that involves sending a low direct current directly to the base of the hemorrhoid. This current causes a natural biochemical reaction in the hemorrhoid that causes it to begin to shrink over a period of time. Over the course of about 10 minutes, this process eventually causes significant reduction in the size of hemorrhoid. This process can treat a hemorrhoid quickly, but it isn't unusual for some patients to require 2-3 treatments to completely abate the condition.
 

The Ultroid® system is primarily used for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids. It effectively treats all grades of internal hemorrhoids, from minor Grade I internal hemorrhoids that aren't prolapsed to advanced Grade IV prolapsed hemorrhoids that can't be manually reduced.

 

 


HET PAINLESS HEMMORHOID TREATMENT SYSTEM 

 

The HET System is a new non-surgical device for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids. It is based on well-established scientific principles, gentle, simple and well-tolerated. The technology is cleared for use by FDA and European authorities.

 

The hemorrhoids are treated with a unique ligation and ablation technology, resulting in their shrinkage and subsequent resolution of the disturbing symptoms.
 

It is a gentle, simple technique and easy to use in the ambulatory setting.The procedure using the HET System is usually very well-tolerated and patients experience either no pain, or brief, mild discomfort. Typically, patients may return to work and normal activities right after the procedure.
 

As with all procedures it is important to advise the surgeon of all medication, vitamins and dietary supplements you are taking. Some dosages may need to be adjusted or avoided completely for a few days prior to the procedure. All allergies must be discussed with the physician or nurse as well. If you have a medical condition, such as diabetes, heart or lung disease that may require special attention during the procedure, discuss this with your doctor.
 

When you arrive at the endoscopy center, one of our patient service coordinators will register you for your procedure. Your demographics and insurance information will be reviewed. The various consents which require your signature will be reviewed. You will be asked to change into a gown. A nurse or your physician will review your medical history and current medication use. Updating this information will ensure that we take the best care of you that we can. Please be prepared to review your health history at this time. Bring a list of medications and drug allergies, if necessary.
