Hemorrhoid Treatment Options

Infrared Coagulation

Infrared Coagulation is a preferred non-surgical treatment for hemorrhoids as it is:

  • The world's leading outpatient treatment for hemorrhoids
  • Performed in an affiliated doctor's office
  • Fast, safe and effective
  • Well-tolerated by patients
  • Pain-free
  • Side effects and complications are extremely rare
  • No down time
  • Covered by most health insurance plans
  • Recommended as a superior hemorrhoid treatment by medical peer review journals
How does IRC work?

IRC works by applying mechanical pressure and exposing the hemorrhoid tissue to short bursts of intense infrared light using a small probe. Heat created by the beam causes scar tissue which cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid mass. With no blood supply continuing within the area of swelling, the hemorrhoids shrinks and recedes. The scar tissue holds nearby veins in place so they don't bulge into the anal canal.

Rubber Band Ligation

Rubber band ligation is an outpatient procedure in which the hemorrhoid is tied off at its base by a small constricting band to stop blood supply to the hemorrhoid. The hemorrhoid dies within a few days, shriveling and falling off along with the band.

Rubber band ligation can be combined with other treatments such as infra-red coagulation (IRC) to improve efficacy and clinical outcomes, and to reduce the number of treatments.

CRH O'Regan System

The CRH O'Regan System is a new alternative to conventional banding for hemorrhoid treatment. Just like rubber band ligation, the procedure involves the placement of a small rubber band around the tissue just above the internal hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off.

One of the main differences lies on the device that grasps the tissue - the single use CRH O'Regan system uses a gentle suction device whereas traditional banding uses a metal-toothed clamp.

The CRH O' Regan System also offers:
  • A smaller ligator affording greater comfort for the patient and ease of use for physicians
  • Improved viewing angle for the physician for more accurate band placement
  • Enhanced patient privacy with the procedure requiring no assistant
  • Virtually no patient downtime
  • 100% disposability thereby eliminating risk of infectious diseases

    Hemorrhoidolysis

    Hemorrhoidolysis is the electric & chemical treatment of hemorrhoids. Basically, it is the dissolution of hemorrhoids by electrical or chemical modes. It involves the direct application of therapeutic electric current to the hemorrhoid which causes a chemical reaction to the hemorrhoidal tissue. This results in its complete and permanent shrinkage. The technique is ideal for internal hemorrhoids.

    Electric therapy of hemorrhoids covers a wide array of techniques. It has been used by physicians for many years but interest in electric proctology has increased recently due to the development of new electric medical devices exclusively for the treatment of hemorrhoids such as Ultroid.

    Ultroid

    Ultroid is an FDA-approved device that is effective on all grades of hemorrhoids including some Grade IV internal and mixed symptomatic bleeding or prolapsed hemorrhoids. This in-office, non-surgical procedure involves the application of a low level electric current to the hemorrhoid base. This micro-electric charge creates a natural chemical reaction that dissolves the hemorrhoid leaving a liquid that is naturally reabsorbed by the body.

    DG-HAL (Doppler Guided Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation) The Doppler Guided Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation is a minimally invasive technique that treats the source of the hemorrhoidal disease by utilizing a medical device called the (DG) HAL/RAR® System. This device also offers another procedure option, the Recto Anal Repair.

    The DG-HAL is performed using this modified probe with the assistance of a Doppler ultrasound flow meter which identifies the exact location of the arteries supplying blood to the hemorrhoids. This procedure stops the blood inflow by passing a needle and thread beneath the identified arteries and then externally tying a knot around it through a small window in the device.

    DG HAL is particularly effective for Grade II and III hemorrhoids.

    Recto Anal Repair Recto Anal Repair (RAR) is a viable new treatment option for high-grade hemorrhoids. It utilizes the HAL/RAR® System and is basically a combination of HAL (Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation) and mucopexy which is the "lifting" of the hemorrhoidal prolapse. It complements the Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation for the treatment of Grade III and most Grade IV hemorrhoids.

    RAR involves the ligation of the artery in question and the repositioning of the prolapsed tissue through the small window of the HAL/RAR® System. This results in hemorrhoid that are shrunken and then pulled up.

    Injection Therapy / Sclerotherapy

    Hemorrhoids are one of the vein malformations that can be treated with Injection Therapy or Sclerotherapy. It is particularly ideal for small internal hemorrhoids that would not qualify for other treatments.

    Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a scar-producing chemical into the base of the hemorrhoid. The Sclerotherapy solution causes the vein walls to harden and collapse, essentially cutting off the blood supply and making the hemorrhoid shrivel up.

    Sclerotherapy can be applied to multiple hemorrhoids at once.

    Cryosurgery

    Cryosurgery is a surgical technique that uses a cryoprobe which is a supercooled probe designed to destroy superfluous tissue. Cooled by liquid nitrogen or nitrous oxide, the frozen tip of the cryoprobe destroys the tissue on contact. Following the procedure, the hemorrhoid will shrink and fall off in two to three weeks. Though proven effective for both external and internal hemorrhoids, preference for Cryosurgery hemorrhoid treatment has weakened due to the pain & complications associated with this technique.

    Laser Therapy

    Lasers have many medical uses including the treatment of hemorrhoids. There are a variety of lasers that can be used for different clinical outcomes. In a fixative procedure, wide beam lasers may be utilized to destroy hemorrhoidal tissue. Narrow beam lasers may be used with precision in hemorrhoid surgery as a cutting tool.

    The best type of laser is nd-YAG laser although other types such as argon and CO2 lasers are also medically preferred.
