Hemorrhoids affect approximately 50 percent of all Americans at some point in their lives. With conservative treatments such as topical creams, steroids, and a high fiber diet, most patients do not require surgery for their hemorrhoids. Our surgeons at The Longstreet Clinic evaluate each patient individually and will determine the best, least invasive treatment plan for you.
Piles are hemorrhoids that become inflamed. They vary in sizes and can be internal or external. Although hemorrhoids and piles can often go away on their own, it's best if you meet with your doctor to determine the best treatment plan.
External hemorrhoidectomy: This procedure can be done in the office to relieve the acute pain caused by thrombosed external hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoid banding: Also an office procedure, it is sometimes used to treat internal hemorrhoids.
Stapled hemorrhoidopexy: This procedure is used to treat internal hemorrhoids by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoids. It is done in the operating room under general anesthesia. Post-operatively, the patients experience little to no pain. This is a painless hemorrhoidectomy.
Traditional hemorrhoidectomy: This is the traditional operation for removing hemorrhoids. Although this is associated with significant post-operative pain, our surgeons have a new technique using an On-Q Pain Pump to significantly decrease post-op pain.
We look forward to talking with you and determining the optimal treatment for your hemorrhoid or piles problems.
