Due in part to how common hemorrhoids are, with about half the population of men and women having hemorrhoids by the time they are 50, there is a great deal of misunderstanding regarding treatments. The most common misunderstanding, even among doctors, is the most effective treatment available is surgery. Unfortunately, this means that many people avoid seeking treatment until the problem is unbearable or attempt home remedies in order to avoid a painful surgery with a long recovery period. The trouble is, most home remedies are ineffective or only offer temporary relief of symptoms.

Non-surgical treatment

The good news— in all but the most severe cases, a simple, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment can provide quick, lasting relief from painful hemorrhoids.  Infrared Coagulation, the most popular such treatment, is a great example.  It involves using a small probe that exposes the vein above the hemorrhoid to short bursts of warm light, causing the hemorrhoid to shrink and recede.  It requires no anesthesia, cutting, or stitches, plus the treatment isgentle and painless. These procedures are conducted in the office and take as little as 15 minutes and require no recovery time. Better still, Infrared Coagulation as a hemorrhoid treatment is 95% effective.
