3 Reasons You Should Visit a Hemorrhoid Doctor
Saturday, April 11th, 2015 | Written by C. Stone Mitchell, MD, FACS
For something as common as hemorrhoids, it may not seem necessary to seek out the advice of a specialist, but before you dismiss the idea consider these three reasons you should visit a hemorrhoid doctor.
Talking to a hemorrhoid doctor will remove some of the fear or embarrassment
The bottom line is, many people find hemorrhoids embarrassing and are reluctant to discuss their condition. Whether out of fear or embarrassment, you shouldn’t allow your suffering to continue. Consulting a hemorrhoid specialist removes some of the embarrassment of breaching the topic. Once you’ve discussed your particular case with the doctor, you may find things aren’t as bad as you had thought. You might find a soak in a warm bath several times a day until your hemorrhoid symptoms subside is all that is required to bring relief. In any case, avoiding the conversation and allowing your condition to worsen doesn’t benefit you at all.
You’ll be talking to someone who is up-to-date on the latest treatment options
In many cases, we’ve found patients reluctant to discuss their condition with a doctor or seek treatment out of fear that their only option was surgery. While a hemorrhoidectomy, which is the surgical treatment to remove hemorrhoids, may be the best option for you, in most cases there are newer non-surgical treatment options that are very effective.
In consulting a hemorrhoid specialist, you may find the best treatment for you is one of the quick and effective non-surgical treatments, like infrared coagulation. Infrared coagulation is a painless treatment we love at Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center, which eliminates the source of the hemorrhoid with just a few short bursts of warm light.
Regardless of what treatment is required, the end result is the same and by seeing a specialist in hemorrhoid treatments, you will know you’ve received the optimal treatment plan for you. You want to make sure your doctor takes into account the most up-to-date treatment options to provide, lasting relief from hemorrhoids without unnecessary pain and suffering.
You’ll finally have lasting relief from your hemorrhoids
From quick and effective non-surgical treatments right up to hemorrhoidectomy, a consultation with a hemorrhoid specialist, like Dr. C. Stone Mitchell of the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center, could be all that is standing between you and lasting relief from the pain of hemorrhoids.
