Hemorrhoids non medicine and surgery treatments

hemorrhoids-medical-guidesHaemorrhoid Injection

For small irritating haemorrhoids which do not protrude out and do not respond to medications, injecting them with a scarring agent will cure them. Within a few days of the injection, the dilated veins shrink.

Hemorrhoid Banding

Rubber band ligation of internal hemorrhoids:
For bigger problematic hemorrhoids a special type of rubber band is slipped over the hemorrhoid’s base tightly This cuts off the hemorrhoids blood supply.

Surgical Therapy

Indications for operative treatment are:

• Heavily bleeding hemorrhoids
• Big protruding hemorrhoids
• Acutely painful hemorrhoids
• Patients who do not respond to non-operative therapy
• Patients who also have significant symptoms or recurrent external thromboses.

During surgery each hemorrhoid is cut and the bleeding points are stitched. Surgery usually leads to a permanent cure.

Complications of surgery are rare.
Complications can be – narrowing of the anal canal (stenosis),bleeding, infection, recurrence, wounds which do not heal easily, and fistula formation.

When performed well, operative haemorrhoidectomy (removal of haemorrhoids) should have a 2-5 per cent recurrence rate. Non-operative techniques, such as
rubber band ligation, produce recurrence rates of 30-50 per cent within 5-10 years. However, these recurrences can usually be treated with further non-operative treatments.


To prevent hemorrhoids

• Keep stools soft so they pass easily, thus decreasing the pressure
• Empty bowels without undue straining as soon as possible after the urge occurs
• Regular exercise
• Increased fiber in the diet and drink adequate amount of fluids.
