If you are suffering from hemorrhoids, which affect roughly half of the population by the age of 50, it is important that you consider seeing a hemorrhoid treatment specialist to devise the optimal treatment plan for you. Why? Two reasons: there’s no reason to let the problem persist, and you want to be confident your treatment plan includes the most up-to-date treatment options. The treatment option we love is somewhat of an amazing secret of hemorrhoid relief—infrared coagulation.
Infrared Coagulation is a non-surgical treatment
If you’ve talked to anyone about your hemorrhoids, there’s a pretty good chance you may have talked about hemorrhoidectomy, a surgical procedure to remove hemorrhoids. The good news is, in all but the most severe cases, surgery isn’t generally required to relieve your hemorrhoid issues. In most cases, a simple, non-surgical treatment, known as infrared coagulation, may be all you need to enjoy lasting relief from your hemorrhoids. This treatment can eliminate the source of a hemorrhoid with just a few short bursts of warm light. It is painless and is performed right in the office with no anesthesia, incisions, or stitches.
Infrared Coagulation is quick and effective
An added benefit is how quick and effective the treatment is. The procedure itself requires no recovery period and takes just a few minutes right in the office. While normally a series of 3 or 4 treatments is required over a 2 to 4 month period to eliminate the source of the hemorrhoid, most people will prefer a few quick trips to our office versus continuing to suffer with hemorrhoids. Better still, infrared coagulation is, in most cases, about 95% effective!
Infrared Coagulation doesn’t just mask the symptoms
As you can see, infrared coagulation is a quick and effective, non-surgical treatment, but what about the creams and other over-the-counter treatments available almost everywhere? Unlike infrared coagulation, which treats the source of your hemorrhoids and provides lasting relief in all but the most severe cases, creams usually only mask the symptoms. While this may work for very minor cases, people suffering with persistent hemorrhoids won’t see longtime relief with creams alone.
