Hemorrhoids can range in severity from painless bleeding to painful swelling. Depending on the degree of your symptoms, and the length you have experienced them, you may be able to help your symptoms with some conservative measures.
But when hemorrhoids become more serious, stronger interventions are required. And when those measures fail, it’s time to visit a proctologist for an expert diagnosis. As one article says, “If you have a more severe case of hemorrhoids, your doctor may suggest surgical treatments including removal of hemorrhoids, burning hemorrhoid tissue and reduction of the hemorrhoids.” More importantly, anal and rectal cancer must be ruled out, therefore, a complete history and physical examination is necessary.
At the Proctology Institute, we offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment options for the effective removal and prevention of hemorrhoids. We offer minimally invasive techniques such as rubber band ligation, infrared coagulation and sclerotherapy. For more serious cases, surgery such as a hemorrhoidectomy may be required. Whatever your symptoms require, we have permanent treatments to help restore your sense of balance and comfort.
