Relief for Unmentionable Pain
About half of the population will experience hemorrhoids after the age of 50. Hemorrhoidal banding is a procedure in which an internal hemorrhoid is tied off with rubber bands, cutting off the blood flow to the hemorrhoid.
The physicians at Digestive Healthcare Center (DHC) may recommend the procedure if your hemorrhoid(s):
- bleed profusely
- cause severe pain
- protrude outside the anus (prolapsed hemorrhoids)
Hemorrhoids can be treated in the office on an outpatient basis with this minimally invasive technique.
The CRH O’Regan System is used at DHC. Unlike other methods, it does not require fasting, sedation or post-procedure care and it completely removes hemorrhoidal symptoms. Additionally, significant pain is NOT a problem. Moreover, it takes fewer than 10 minutes per session and can treat 99% of hemorrhoid sufferers.
During this procedure, a disposable ligator is used to create a soft, gentle suction that pulls the appropriate tissue into it. The rubber band can then be easily and painlessly placed around the base of the hemorrhoid, away from any pain-causing nerve endings. This system offers the safest, quickest, most comfortable and effective solution for hemorrhoid patients.
The physicians at Digestive Healthcare Center are highly skilled and well-qualified to safely and successfully treat this, often painful, condition.
