Different Types of Hemorrhoids Surgery

There is a theory going around that hemorrhoid surgery should be avoided because it can lead to complications. This is partly true and partly false. Firstly, though there is of course a risk involved, this is really a normal risk that is involved with any surgery – there is no additional risk due it being hemorrhoid surgery, perhaps only the additional risk of an anal fissure occuring in certain circumstances. Secondly, sometimes when medications are not effective, surgery remains an option that can at least provide relief. So surgery for hemorrhoids will continue to remain an option.

There are many types of hemorrhoid surgery options. When everything fails and surgery remains the only option, which of these options should the person opt for. Obviously this is a decision that will be made by a medical professional who is qualified to do so and be made based on the observations of the case. The victim should also know about the various options that are available. After all, it is your health.

Here Are a Few of The Various Types of Hemorrhoid Surgery Options that are Out There

Laser Surgery: This involves the use of laser to burn the hemorrhoids. Though the laser treatment may have to be carried out, the process itself is painless and no direct cutting is needed, and this has made laser surgery popular. When all types of hemorrhoid surgery options are compared, with laser surgery the chances of an infection is less.

Rubber Band Litigation: This is the second type. Here a small rubber band is tied to the hemorrhoid base, and wraps it up tightly, blood supply to the hemorrhoid is cut off. It takes about 7 days to 10 days for the hemorrhoid and also the band to fall off, and it can then be said the area is healed. The best thing about this surgery option is that, Rubber Band Litigation works with internal hemorrhoids as well. Only a small scar where the hemorrhoid was before would remain after the process.

Stapling The Hemorrhoid: This is another surgery option that is gaining in popularity, particularly in the recent years. Stapling the hemorrhoid can be a good option when other surgeries are failing, and the hemorrhoid keeps coming back again and again. It is used when the hemorrhoid tends to come out of the anus. The stapler is used to cut the blood supply and make it fall off. However this process is still under investigation.

Cryohemorrhoidectomy: Among all the types of hemorrhoid surgery options, this is also quite popular. It is a painless process and it is convenient too because the patient need not be admitted to the clinic. And it can be done for both internal and external hemorrhoids. Cryohemorrhoidectomy is better than having a knife on ones anus and cutting off the growth.


Natural hemorrhoids treatment : This options uses a blend of natural essential oils formulated to first reduce pain and itching, and then shrink and  treat the hemorrhoid symptoms altogether.
