What is Hemorrhoidal Banding?
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) cause painful or uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- bleeding profusely
- causing severe pain
- protruding outside the anus (prolapsed hemorrhoids)
How are Hemorrhoids Treated?
Minimally Invasive Treatment for Hemorrhoids in New Jersey
The CRH O’Regan System is used at DHC to treat painful and uncomfortable hemorrhoids in NJ. Unlike other treatment 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, the treatment takes fewer than 10 minutes per session and can treat 99% of hemorrhoid sufferers.
What Happens During Hemorrhoidal Banding?
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.
