Hemorrhoid Treatment Options

Three options offered, your physician can discuss what treatment is best for you.

What is the HET System?

The HET System is a new technology designed specifically to treat internal hemorrhoids with bleeding and/or reducible prolapse. Using a combination of gentle tissue compression and mild heat, hemorrhoids are treated in the area where the human body doesn’t feel much pain (above the so called “dentate line”). To produce mild heat, the HET system uses well-accepted and safe energy form called bipolar radiofrequency. The temperature of the treatment area is monitored on the specially designed display, so the doctor can exactly control the treatment temperature.

With the HET System, the treatment of hemorrhoids usually:

  • Is well tolerated, without the need for general or local anesthesia.
  • Results in no significant discomfort or pain following treatment.
  • Takes 8-12 seconds on average to treat one hemorrhoid. All hemorrhoids can be treated in one visit.
  • Results in rapid recovery. Most patients return to work and routine activities immediately after treatment.

O'Regan CRH Banding

Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Removal

The hemorrhoid treatment technology works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing it to shrink after the band falls off in a few days. You may not even notice when this happens.

  • Fewer than 5% of patients have a recurrence within 2 years
  • Takes less than 1 minute
  • Less than 1% complication rate — much safer than traditional banding

With our unique banding system, you won’t feel pain or need to take valuable time off work and life. Hemorrhoid treatment with the CRH system is even covered by most insurance plans. See why the CRH O’Regan System is considered more than 99% effective in treating hemorrhoids. Learn more about our treatment here:

If you’re ready to say goodbye to hemorrhoids forever, then it’s time for the patented CRH O’Regan System. This highly effective, minimally invasive banding procedure is performed in less than a minute, and recurrence is rare.

  • Multiple hemorrhoids are treated in separate visits to ensure a low complication rate – less than 1%
  • More than 99% of patients report no post-procedure pain
  • Much safer than traditional banding
  • Smaller instruments for greater comfort and faster treatment

During Your Appointment

First, your physician will examine you and confirm your diagnosis. If he or she determines a CRH System hemorrhoid banding procedure is right for you, you may begin treatment right away, or on a subsequent visit.

During the brief and painless banding procedure, your physician will use a gentle suction device – unlike the harsh metal clamps used in other banding treatments – to place a small rubber band around the base of the internal hemorrhoid where there are no pain-sensitive nerve endings. The whole thing typically takes less than 60 seconds.

After the Hemorrhoid Banding Treatment

Once the band is in place, it cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing the banded tissue to fall off, typically within a few days. You probably will not even notice when this happens! The hemorrhoid will shrink, relieving your symptoms.

During the first 24 hours, you may experience a feeling of fullness or a dull ache in the rectum, but over-the-counter pain medication will provide sufficient relief.

If you have multiple hemorrhoids, you’ll likely need to come back to treat each one separately – that way, your doctor can monitor your treatment and ensure the complication rate is kept to an absolute minimum.

After treatment, recovery is easy.

Fast Hemorrhoid Healing, Fast Recovery

Once your doctor’s visit is complete, that’s it – no restrictive hemorrhoid recovery regimens to follow. You can resume your normal activities as tolerated. Simply avoid heavy lifting, rigorous exercise and similarly strenuous activity on the day of your treatment. You can resume all normal activity the next day.

You can have normal bowel movements during hemorrhoid recovery, though you may want to soak in a sitz bath (a warm tub with a tablespoon of table salt added) or use a bidet for a gentler cleansing of the anal opening.

IRC Infrared Coagulation

Infrared coagulation has become the world’s leading office treatment for hemorrhoids. This non-surgical treatment is fast, well tolerated, and remarkably complication-free. A small probe is placed above the hemorrhoid and a few short bursts of infrared light are applied. The infrared light quickly coagulates the vessels that provide the hemorrhoid with blood, causing the hemorrhoid to shrink and recede. Shrinkage of the hemorrhoidal tissue may take a few weeks. There is no pain during the procedure, no post-treatment effects in 99% of patients. Usually 1-3 treatments are required.
