What Is Hemorrhoid Surgery?
Hemorrhoids are swollen or bulging veins in the lower part of the rectum or anus that may cause pain, discomfort, or bleeding. While most hemorrhoids resolve on their own, or with lifestyle and dietary changes, some hemorrhoids may require surgery. Sierra Pacific Surgical offers three surgical procedures to treat hemorrhoids: in-office banding, hemorrhoidectomies, and stapled hemorrhoidopexy. Contact our centers in Roseville or Folsom, CA to learn more about hemorrhoid surgery.
How Is Hemorrhoid Surgery Performed?
In-office banding, also called rubber band ligation, is a minor procedure performed at our state-of-the-art practice locations. This surgery involves inserting a small rubber band on the base of the hemorrhoid, effectively cutting off the hemorrhoid's blood supply. This procedure is fairly painless and can be performed without anesthesia. For internal hemorrhoids that have prolapsed, our surgeons perform hemorrhoidopexy or stapling, which is a same-day surgical procedure performed at an accredited surgical center in the Greater Sacramento, CA area. During a hemorrhoidopexy, our team will use a surgical staple to adhere the prolapsed hemorrhoid back into place. For large hemorrhoids that are not responding to nonsurgical treatment, a full hemorrhoidectomy can be performed. This procedure removes the hemorrhoid completely.
