Laser hemorrhoid removal specialist! Dr. Maz did more than help my husband, he helped our family! He gave him back his sanity and mind-set! Right after his laser hemorrhoid removal surgery, he immediately felt like a new person!! My husband was in and out of hospitals with no answers and no results. After a 11 HR wait in the ER, and not being released until 7:30am the next day, I suggested he keep his appointment with Dr. G, he went and it was the best decision he ever made. He truly blessed him with results, everyone was very professional and accommodating at the surgical center. I highly recommend his services, if needed. ~ YELP

Hemorrhoids are extremely common and terribly uncomfortable. In most cases, hemorrhoids will not simply go away on their own. Hemorrhoids are swollen / irritated blood vessels in or around the anus and rectum. The hemorrhoid veins are located in the lowest part of the rectum and the anus. Sometimes the hemorrhoids swell so that the vein walls become stretched, thin, and irritated causing varying amounts of pain. Hemorrhoids are classified into two general categories: internal and external.
Internal hemorrhoids: Internal hemorrhoids are not visible to the eye unless they prolapse out of the anal opening. They occur deep inside the rectum where you can’t see or feel them. There is typically no pain associated with internal hemorrhoids due to the fact the human body does not have pain-sensing nerves in this part of the body above the dentate line. Bleeding (viewed when wiping the anus) may or may not occur and is typically the only sign that they are there. Sometimes internal hemorrhoids “prolapse” (become large and inflamed) and protrude outside the anal sphincter.
External hemorrhoids: External hemorrhoids are visible to the eye and occur within the anus and are uncomfortable and can become very painful. If an external hemorrhoid swells up to the outside (usually in the course of passing a stool), you can see and feel it. External hemorrhoid removal is a minor surgical procedure offered by the Proctology Institute of CA. Thrombosed external hemorrhoids are a type of external hemorrhoids that present as an incredibly painful lump in the peri-anal area. Most hemorrhoid removal specialists agree that it is best to remove a thrombosed external hemorrhoid within the first 72 hours. However, sometimes thrombosed external hemorrhoids are so large that they will not decrease in size and hemorrhoid surgery is required.
Reasons for hemorrhoid development include:
- Chronic constipation and diarrhea
- Excessive straining during bowel movements
- Prolonged sitting
- Heavy lifting
- Certain types of food
- Stress / anxiety
- Anal intercourse
- Chronic cough
- Diets that lack fibrous food
- The natural aging process
The type of hemorrhoids removal treatment best for you will be dependent on the severity (degree) of hemorrhoids you have and whether your hemorrhoids are internal or external. Your proctologist will discuss all of your options (after a comprehensive evaluation) to determine which hemorrhoid removal treatment is the best option for your unique case.
Hemorrhoid Removal Treatments
- Laser Hemorrhoid Removal (Infrared Coagulation): Laser hemorrhoid removal is the most popular treatment procedure performed by our proctologists with an extremely high patient satisfaction rate. Infrared coagulation (IRC) is a hemorrhoids treatment for non-protruding hemorrhoids that present with bleeding. Laser hemorrhoid removal is a non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment that can be performed in the office without anesthesia. This hemorrhoids removal technique is used by our proctologists to shrink internal hemorrhoid tissue by applying a controlled amount of infrared energy to the hemorrhoid. Laser hemorrhoid removal essentially works by coagulating the blood vessels that provide the hemorrhoid with blood. This causes the hemorrhoid tissue to shrink back.
- Sclerotherapy: With this type of hemorrhoids removal treatment – medication is injected directly into the hemorrhoids by the doctor. As a result, the hemorrhoids shrink and are treated.
- Rubber Band Ligation: This treatment consists of tying rubber bands around the base of the hemorrhoids to cut off the supply of blood. This is a very simple and fast office-based hemorrhoid removal treatment for internal hemorrhoids. Within a few days after this procedure, the rubber band and the hemorrhoid will fall off. In a couple of weeks, the wound will heal.
