The gastrointestinal specialists at GI Associates Clinic are well equipped to handle a variety of procedures.
Hemorrhoids. They are usually painful and uncomfortable, but the good news is treatment is simple and effective under the care and supervision of your gastroenterologist.
Hemorrhoids may be uncomfortable to talk about, but we are here to offer a solution.
You may have been told:
- You just need to learn to live with it because hemorrhoid surgery is so painful.
- Just put this cream on your bottom and it will get better after awhile.
- You have to have surgery. It’s your only choice.
The truth is, you have options and don’t have to live with the pain of hemorrhoids.
At GI Associates we use the CRH O’Regan System®, which is more than 99% effective in treating hemorrhoids, and is covered by most insurance plans. This procedure is painless and can be completed in just a few minutes. Your physician will place a small rubber band around the base of the hemorrhoid where there are no pain-sensitive nerve endings. Once the band is in place, it cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing the banded tissue to fall off, typically within a few days.
