Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid removal surgery, or hemorrhoidectomy, is an increasingly obsolete procedure. For 99% of people experiencing hemorrhoids, surgery can be avoided through the use rubber band ligation. This is good news for patients, who can avoid a hospital procedure, pain and discomfort, and a recovery time as long as 2 or even 3 weeks.

Our gastroenterologists are trained to use the CRH O’Regan System device for a quick, non-surgical, and relatively comfortable approach to hemorrhoid removal. This minimally invasive FDA-approved banding technology is clinically shown to be 99% effective and appropriate for most all patients who suffer from hemorrhoids. The procedure can be done in the doctor’s office, is relatively painless, and typically requires no recovery time. In fact, many of our patients return to work the same day!

The recurrence rate is on par with that of surgery, and complications, such as bleeding or pain, occur in less than 1% of patients.
