Did you know that half of Americans over the age of 50 suffer from some form of hemorrhoidal disease? If you’ve been suffering in silence, it’s time to receive the simple and painless treatment you need to start enjoying your life once again. Here’s everything you need to know about hemorrhoid procedure preparation.
What Is a Hemorrhoid?
The basic cause of any hemorrhoidal disease is increased pressure in the veins of the hemorrhoidal cushions in the anal canal. As pressure builds, it weakens the muscle and connective tissue in the hemorrhoids, which causes the veins to distend and protrude from their normal positions.
It’s important to trace increased pressure back to its root cause, which may include heavy physical activity, pregnancy and labor, low-fiber diets, extended periods of sitting, obesity, and high blood pressure. Prevention is always the best medicine, but if it’s too late and you’re already suffering from a hemorrhoid, treatment is available!
How Can Hemorrhoids Be Treated?
Hemorrhoid treatment has a reputation for being painful and unpleasant – so let’s bust that myth right now. The right hemorrhoid treatment can actually be simple and comfortable, which is exactly why the Hemorrhoid Treatment Center of Florida uses a painless method known as HET.
The HET procedure does not require extensive preparation, anesthesia, or long recovery time. Even more severe hemorrhoids located below the dentate line only require local anesthesia, so you can still return to your normal activities the same day.
The HET (Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy) procedure is a new technique that painlessly treats internal hemorrhoids without any hospital visits or extra expenses. The treatment itself only takes 10 minutes!
How Should I Prepare For My Hemorrhoid Procedure?
If you are visiting the Hemorrhoid Treatment Center of Florida for internal hemorrhoid treatment using HET, you actually don’t need to worry about your preparation! HET is such a simple process that no preparation is necessary. Simply arrive at your local office and benefit from Dr. David Shapiro’s 40+ years of medical experience.
