What Are There Advantages Of Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery Over Traditional Hemorrhoidectomy?

Surgical removal of inflamed hemorrhoidal tissue is the most aggressive approach to treating this painful condition, but it is also the most effective. In the past, the go-to option for those who suffered severe pain and discomfort from this condition was a traditional surgical procedure that required us to cut out the tissue, cauterize bleeding vessels, and stitch the tissue back together. Today, however, advances in technology allow for laser hemorrhoid surgery in Los Angeles. This laser procedure is just as effective as traditional surgery, and has a number of advantages as well. It is important to note however, that not all patients are candidates for laser procedures.

How It Works:

This procedure is done under short general anaesthesia and takes about 20 minutes. Through the natural anal opening, laser energy is applied using a special radially emitting fibre. The controlled emission of laser energy causes vaporization leading the haemorrhoidal mass to shrink.

Is laser hemorrhoid surgery painful?

What is staple surgery for piles?

Stapled hemorrhoidectomy is a misnomer since the surgery does not remove the hemorrhoids but, rather, the abnormally lax and expanded hemorrhoidal supporting tissue that has allowed the hemorrhoids to prolapse downward.
