They are itchy and can cause a great deal of discomfort. Hemorrhoids are a common problem, affecting about 1 in 20 Americans.
Symptoms of mild hemorrhoids may go away on their own even without treatment, but with chronic hemorrhoids, it’s a completely different story.
Chronic hemorrhoids can exist indefinitely and can flare-up every few weeks, months, or even years.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with the pain and inconvenience of chronic hemorrhoids. The team at Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center in Knoxville, TN, is dedicated to permanently eradicating hemorrhoids. We are ONLY a hemorrhoid treatment center in the south east!
Seeing a Doctor
Initially, your family doctor may recommend conservative measures to alleviate the symptoms of your hemorrhoids. This may include adding more fiber to your diet, staying active, and avoiding heavy lifting. You may also be advised to take some over-the-counter pain relievers and do a sitz bath to relieve the discomfort.
If self-care doesn’t lessen your symptoms, your doctor may recommend that you seek in-office procedures, such as offered by the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center. We offer the non-surgical laser hemorrhoid treatment Infrared Coagulation. IRC is quick, painless, and covered by most insurance plans!
In Infrared Coagulation, a special device is used to deliver infrared light. This light energy cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoids and causes them to shrink away permanently. This procedure effectively eliminates 90 percent of painful hemorrhoids.
For severe cases of hemorrhoids, a hemorrhoidectomy may be recommended. It’s a surgical procedure that involves the removal of prolapsed or large external hemorrhoids.
