Don’t be Ashamed of Your Hemorrhoids!

Hemorrhoid Treatment Center - Knoxville, TN

Hemorrhoids are very common. In fact, about 1 in 20 Americans suffer from them. Despite this figure, many are still hesitant to seek help because they feel embarrassed about their hemorrhoids. 

Don’t be ashamed of your hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are not a result of poor hygiene. They develop because of the added pressure into your rectal area. This can be due to obesity, pregnancy, heavy lifting, or straining during a bowel movement. 

Seeking Help for Hemorrhoids

Some people think that hemorrhoids are nothing but a minor problem. The truth is, they can seriously impact your quality of life by causing pain and a lot of discomforts. 

If you are experiencing any of the following with your hemorrhoids, see your primary provider immediately: 

  • You are experiencing rectal bleeding (you see bright red blood on your toilet paper).
  • You are having pain or discomfort in your rectal or anal area. 
  • You have tried conservative measures and even over-the-counter medications but they don’t seem to improve your symptoms. 

Hemorrhoid Treatment at Premier Surgical 

At Premier Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment Center in Knoxville, we offer a non-surgical method for treating hemorrhoids.

Our most popular non-surgical hemorrhoid procedure is Infrared Coagulation or IRC. This procedure involves the use of a small probe that exposes the vein above hemorrhoid to short bursts of warm light. This exposure to warm light causes hemorrhoids to shrink and recede.

There are so many benefits of doing non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment. For one, this method usually takes less time than traditional treatments (around 10 minutes or less). IRC also doesn’t require the use of anesthesia, doesn’t involve any cutting or stitches, and there’s no downtime. You can go back to your regular activities after this type of hemorrhoid treatment.
