While it would obviously be ideal to be able to treat and cure hemorrhoids from the comfort and privacy of your own home, in some cases this just isn’t possible.
Some hemorrhoids advance so quickly, come on so suddenly, and are so painful in nature that it simply is not possible to contain them using the regular home remedies and non-prescription treatment options.
If your hemorrhoids are constant and severely painful, then it may be time to look into a treatment option that will completely remove the hemorrhoid entirely.
In those unfortunate and painful cases, it is necessary to look at hemorrhoid removal options, of which there are a few good and effective options- some surgical, and some not.
It is important to get all the information you can when looking at these surgical options, but it is also important to not be afraid to take the best hemorrhoid removal option available to you. Here is a list of some of the current most common hemorrhoid removal techniques being used with great success.
Hemorrhoidectomy: This is the first and fastest surgical option to consider when looking to completely remove hemorrhoids- and as the name suggests, it is a complete removal of the dilated veins that cause hemorrhoids. This option is looked to when the hemorrhoids are large in nature, or when the pain and swelling recurs commonly in the same area and vein. It is a simple procedure that is done under general anesthesia, and rarely takes longer than an hour. This is a very non-invasive procedure that involves snipping the vein that is swollen or is feeding the offending clot and completely removing a portion of it. This cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid and cures it.
Hemorrhoid Bands: This hemorrhoid surgery is more simple than the hemorrhoidectomy and is used for less serious hemorrhoids. This procedure is exactly what it sounds like. The surgeon will find the hemorrhoid and then place restrictive bands around the dilated vein. This band will keep the hemorrhoid from enlarging, and the pressure of the elastic should cause it to shrink in size. This is a simple surgery, and usually results in hemorrhoid removal in the end.
Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy: This is a fairly new surgical procedure being used to remove hemorrhoids. In this hemroid surgery, the surgeon will attach the offending vein to the original position, and the staples added will keep the vein from rolling and moving again. The major benefits of this hemroid surgery are that the procedure is simple and fairly painless, and it removes the hemorrhoid permanently.
While hemorrhoid surgery can be a scary and serious alternative to consider when looking to treat your hemorrhoids, it can be a very effective and painless route to take, especially if your hemorrhoid pain is severe or recurring. Talk to your doctor about these common and non-invasive procedures to see if hemorrhoid removal surgery is the best option for you and your pain in the you-know-where.
