Laser Hemorrhoidectomy

Caused by swollen veins in the anus and lower rectum, hemorrhoids can be extremely painful and disruptive to everyday life. Although rarely dangerous, this condition can cause severe itching, pain, and bleeding. Not every patient with hemorrhoids, however, seeks treatment, choosing to keep this condition private. What most patients don’t realize is that hemorrhoids are extremely common. Indeed, by the age of 50, roughly half of the population will have experienced the symptoms associated with this condition.

Fortunately, you do not have to put up with this uncomfortable and recurring condition. At Pacific Med Health Group, we offer state-of-the-art minimally-invasive laser hemorrhoid surgery that effectively delivers fast relief and eliminates painful symptoms. Known as laser hemorrhoidectomy, this procedure is the preferred choice for hemorrhoid patients seeking safe treatment that minimizes bleeding and does not require hospitalization.

WHEN TO SEEK LASER HEMORRHOID TREATMENT

There are two types of hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids occur under the skin around the anus, while internal ones develop inside the rectum. This condition can be caused or exacerbated by obesity, heavy lifting, or straining during bowel movements. Hemorrhoids commonly develop with aging once the tissues that support the veins in the anus and rectum stretch and become swollen.

The common symptoms include itching, bleeding, swelling discomfort, and formation of lumps resulting in thrombosed hemorrhoids. In some cases, these symptoms can be alleviated by taking a sitz bath, using topical hemorrhoid creams, or introducing more fiber into your doctor. However, you should seek professional hemorrhoid treatment if you continue to experience frequent bleeding, pain, or persistent discomfort.

SCHEDULING A CONSULTATION

Scheduling a consultation is a crucial first step in the treatment of hemorrhoids. An in-person examination will enable your physician to rule out other potential causes of rectal bleeding such as colon polyps, colitis, colorectal cancer, or anal cancer. In addition, it will allow for an assessment of potential complications such as anemias or strangulated hemorrhoids that occur when the blood supply to an internal hemorrhoid is cut off.

Our careful and personalized approach to preparing patients for the procedure invariably pays off. We are known to dedicate a substantial amount of time to an in-person examination and build close personal rapport with patients prior to surgery. During the consultation, our experienced specialists will go over every step involved in the procedure and ensure that you understand what to expect during the recovery process.

THE PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY

To achieve precise results and minimize bleeding during hemorrhoid surgery, our specialists offer state-of-the-art laser treatment. Much like traditional hemorrhoidectomy, this procedure involves a fine incision to remove swollen veins around internal or external hemorrhoids. Unlike

traditional hemorrhoid surgery, however, laser hemorrhoidectomy is known to minimize bleeding and reduce post-operative pain. In addition, laser seals the blood vessels, eliminating the need for stitches. Because the laser beam is small, our surgeons will be able to make more precise incisions resulting in smaller scars. Resulting in less tissue damage, laser surgery typically allows for a speedier and more painless recovery process.

This procedure does not require hospitalization and most patients are discharged on the day of surgery. Because laser hemorrhoidectomy results in less tissue damage than traditional hemorrhoid surgery, most patients experience a quick recovery. Following the procedure, our surgeons and staff will regularly follow up to ascertain that you are enjoying a smooth healing process. If necessary, they will prescribe safe over-the-counter medications to relieve any potential discomfort.

THE COST AND FINANCING OPTIONS

The cost for this procedure may vary from patient to patient depending on various factors. However, most hemorrhoid treatment options are covered by insurance. We guarantee that our pricing will always be competitive with that of other local providers furnishing equivalent services. We provide excellent financing options, and discounts for multiple procedures are available.
