Hemorrhoids are never fun to have and there can often seem like there is no relief in sight when using over-the-counter creams and lotions. Fortunately, there are ways to surgically remove the hemorrhoids in a painless fashion. Here are a few different Pain-free Surgical methods of hemorrhoid relief.
- PPH, also known as stapled hemorrhoidopexy, is a treatment that consists of a tool similar to a stapler. The tool is used to cut off the blood supply to the hemorrhoids which results in them shrinking and dying off. The recovery time with this type of procedure is very quick and there are few, if any, complications that occur.
- Hemorrhoidectomy is the complete removal of the hemorrhoids by literally cutting them out of the area of the anal pore. Either local or general anesthesia will be given to completely eliminate the pain. Medical practitioners consider this an outpatient procedure so the patient can go home the same day. The area may be sensitive afterwards for a short time but, again, the recovery time is very quick.
- Sclerotherapy is the process of applying medicine around the affected blood vessel of the anal skin to reduce the hemorrhoid. Minor scarring and/or inflammation may occur but this is a very effective method of removing the symptoms.
- One procedure that is so pain-free that it does not even require anesthesia is called rubber-band ligation. This procedure utilizes a tool similar to a gun with a rubber band at the end. When the trigger is pulled, the rubber band is squeezed onto the bottom of the hemorrhoid to cut off the supply of blood, resulting in shrinkage and death.
While there are risks to any of these, just as there are with any type of surgery, the risks are considered very minimal.
