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.

Who Needs Hemorrhoid Surgery?

If you have hemorrhoids, you likely have experienced some of the discomforting side effects, such as itching, pain, and more. Not all cases of hemorrhoids need to be treated with surgery, however. Some cases where hemorrhoid surgery may be necessary include:

  • Diet and exercise adjustments have not relieved symptoms
  • Medical intervention has been unsuccessful
  • You're experiencing severe bleeding due to your hemorrhoids
  • Your pain due to hemorrhoids is disrupting your ability to function in daily life

If you've tried without fail to get rid of your hemorrhoids, it may be time to seek out the expert help of one of our doctors at Sierra Pacific Surgical.

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.
