Our surgeons have expertise in both office and outpatient operating room procedures for the management of hemorrhoids such as injection and coagulation, rubber band ligation, stapled hemorrhoidopexy and excisional hemorrhoidectomy.
Treatment of hemorrhoidal disease is based on symptoms. First and foremost, other possible explanations must be excluded, including malignancy. Therefore colonoscopy or other visualization techniques may first be recommended to exclude such a possibility. If medical management is optimal, that is, you have soft bowel movements without straining and have been compliant about observing recommendations to avoid constipation, your physician may offer several therapies to you. If your internal hemorrhoidal symptoms are more complex, or are associated with external hemorrhoidal symptoms as well, office procedures or surgical removal of the hemorrhoids may be warranted. However, your physician will speak with you and outline alternatives in evaluation and treatment.
Our team is available for second opinion consultations for anyone who wishes to confirm a diagnosis or discuss treatment options.
