Hemorrhoids

What are hemorrhoids?

-Hemorrhoids are cushions of tissues filled with veins in the lower part of your rectum and anal canal that under normal circumstances do not cause any symptoms and are a part of your anatomy. 50% of the population will suffer from some combination of symptoms by the age 50 

What causes hemorrhoids?

-Hemorrhoids can commonly cause discomfort in patients due to an increase in pressure in the lower rectum. This is commonly seen in people who suffer from constipation, diarrhea, obesity, pregnancy, low fiber diet, sedentary lifestyle and work with heavy lifting. 

What are symptoms of hemorrhoids?

-Symptoms may include bleeding, itchiness, pain, irritation and prolapse. Severity ranges from very mild disease to pain that can be very disruptive to your life

What are treatment for hemorrhoids?

-Treatment includes correcting constipation/diarrhea, a high fiber diet, medications and in some cases a medical procedure

What is hemorrhoid banding?

-Hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation, is a fast and non-surgical approach to symptomatic hemorrhoids thats performed in our office and used to treated internal hemorrhoids. Its done tying off the base of the hemorrhoid with a rubber band cutting off its blood supply. The hemorrhoid will then shrink and die, falling off in about 2-10 days. 

What are the benefits of band ligation?

-Unlike hemorrhoidectomy, it doesn’t require fasting, sedation or post-procedure care. And unlike home remedies that provide temporary relief, it completely removes hemorrhoid symptoms. Its simple, effective and yields good long-term results. 

 

-If you suffer from hemorrhoids, call us for a consult with Dr. Tenembaum and Dr. Aviles for further medical advise.
