Treatment for Hemorrhoids in Knoxville, TN
Hemorrhoids are common in both men and women. In fact, about half the population has hemorrhoids by age 50. Many pregnant women also suffer from hemorrhoids due to the pressure of the fetus on the abdomen and hormonal changes. When caused by pregnancy, it is often only a temporary problem.
EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR LASTING COMFORT
Have you put off seeking treatment for hemorrhoids because of concerns about painful surgery and a long recovery period? At Premier you can take comfort in our expertise. Our non-invasive, non-surgical procedures make hemorrhoid relief quicker, easier and virtually pain-free.
Infrared Coagulation (IRC): This time-tested procedure is the world’s leading office treatment for hemorrhoids. It involves using a small laser probe that exposes the vein above the hemorrhoid to short bursts of warm light, causing the hemorrhoid to shrink and recede.
BENEFITS TO NON-SURGICAL TREATMENTS INCLUDE:
- Less invasive than traditional methods
- Short treatment times, usually 15 minutes
- No downtime
- No anesthesia
- No cutting or stitches
