If you have chronic or debilitating hemorrhoids, there are a lot of treatment options available to you. Depending on the type of hemorrhoids you have and their location, there may be more than one option available. Here are three treatments we offer and when they are used.
Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy
Hemorrhoid energy therapy, or HET, is a newer treatment method for internal hemorrhoids. The treatment involves directing energy into the affected area to cut off blood flow to the hemorrhoid so that it can heal. This treatment is effective for internal hemorrhoids that are bleeding or prolapsed, as well as grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 hemorrhoids.
Excision is used to treat external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids are those that cause pain and discomfort, and often prohibit effective cleaning after bowel movements. They may also cause some bleeding. This part of the anus is filled with pain receptors, so this process is completed using a local anesthetic .
Occasionally used but sometimes associated with discomfort and occasionally associated with painful applications. Accordingly the HET Procedure is preferred and has more durable and more favorable outcomes.
If you have chronic or debilitating hemorrhoids, there is no need to suffer. We can offer treatments that will make you comfortable and regular once again. If you are interested in receiving treatment for your hemorrhoids, contact us today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
