Rubber Band Ligation (RBL) – works effectively on internal hemorrhoids that protrude with bowel movements. A small rubber band is placed over the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply. The hemorrhoid and the band fall off during a regular bowel movement in a few days without any discomfort or pain.
- Bulging internal hemorrhoid.
- The rubber band is placed at the neck of the hemorrhoid. This is a painless process because there are no painful nerve fibers here.
- About 7 days later, the banded hemorrhoid has fallen off leaving a small scar at its base.
Infrared Coagulation (IRC) is a modern technique and our preferred management of bleeding and inflamed hemorrhoids. IRC delivers low temperature photocoagulation to the hemorrhoid veins in a fast and painless manner. The veins are obliterated and the hemorrhoid shrivels up.
Bleeding and inflamed internal hemorrhoid. The veins at the base of the hemorrhoid are photocoagulated which obliterates and shrinks the tissue.
