About Hemorrhoids Treatment

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.
What is Hemorrhoid Surgery?
Hemorrhoid surgery (hemorrhoidectomy) is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins surrounding the anus. They occur inside or outside the skin of the rectum. As the surgical site is very sensitive area, hemorrhoid surgery causes a lot of pain.

How is Hemorrhoid Surgery Performed?
Hemorrhoid surgery may be performed in different ways; some of the methods are listed below:
  • Rubber band ligation
    This procedure involves tying a rubber hand over internal hemorrhoids that obtrude during bowel moments. The blood supply is cut off by the rubber band. Within a few days after this procedure, the rubber band and the hemorrhoid will fall off. In a couple of weeks, the wound will heal. The patient may experience mild pain and bleeding.
  • Sclerotherapy
    In this procedure, a chemical solution is injected into the blood vessels around the hemorrhoid to shrink it. It is effective in treating non-protruding hemorrhoids that bleed.
  • Infrared coagulation
    Infrared coagulation is also an effective treatment for non-protruding hemorrhoids that bleed. In this procedure, a special device that uses heat is applied in the treatment of hemorrhoids.
  • Surgical resection
    Incisions are made around the anus to cut the hemorrhoids out. Special staplers or sutures may be used during the surgery.

How to Prepare for Hemorrhoid Surgery?
  • The patient should inform the doctor about any medical ailments or conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or pregnancy.
  • The patient should tell the doctor about any drugs that the patient may be taking with or without a prescription.
  • Some types of medications that the patient may be taking are stopped some days before the surgery.
