All you need to know about Hemorrhoids/Piles
We are dedicated to providing our patients with the most advanced and comprehensive hemorrhoid treatments available. Our commitment to excellence is evident in our wide range of specialized procedures tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual.
Rubber Band Ligation
One of our primary treatments is Rubber Band Ligation. This minimally invasive technique involves placing a small rubber band around the base of the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply. The procedure is quick, often painless, and offers the advantage of a faster recovery compared to traditional surgeries.
Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid Procedure
For those suffering from painful external hemorrhoids, our Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid Procedure offers immediate relief. Our skilled practitioners ensure that the clot causing pain and swelling is carefully removed, providing patients with a swift return to comfort.
Complex Hemorrhoid Surgery
In cases where hemorrhoids are more severe or recurrent, our Complex Hemorrhoid Surgery is the go-to solution. This procedure is designed for intricate intervention, ensuring that even the most challenging cases are addressed with precision and care.
Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization
Lastly, we are proud to offer Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization. This cutting-edge procedure targets the hemorrhoidal arteries, reducing blood flow to the hemorrhoids and promoting their shrinkage. It’s a testament to our clinic’s dedication to staying at the forefront of medical advancements in the field.
Our holistic approach to hemorrhoid treatment ensures that every patient receives the best care possible. From the initial consultation to post-procedure follow-ups, our team is here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring a lasting relief and an improved quality of life.

ColoWell America’s gold standard RUBBER BAND LIGATION – a quick, non-surgical, in-office procedure with little to no pain or complications.
Rubber band ligation is preferred for hemorrhoids because of its effectiveness and affordability compared to other more invasive interventions and non-beneficial over-the-counter remedies.
How the treatment works:
- The treatment targets the blood vessel which feeds the hemorrhoid ligating the blood vessel and cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid.
- The blood flow to the hemorrhoid is interrupted and it begins to shrink.
- Since the hemorrhoid has lost its connection with the feeding vessel, it continues to shrink and fall off during the 3-7 days following treatment.
Affordable, No time off necessary, No hospital visits. No need for special prep before procedure, Performed In Office In Minutes.
Rubber band ligation is the best treatment modality. Complications with banding are little to none. The procedure does not require surgery or a hospital visit, and you don’t have to take off work or require any difficult preparation!
To help prevent hemorrhoids and hemorrhoid recurrence you can eat more high fiber foods, including fruits, vegetables and whole grains. There are also fiber supplements like ColoFlax, Metamucil or Citrucel. Our doctor also recommends daily flax seed powder ingestion (2tbsp/day). You can also help prevent hemorrhoids by drinking four to six glasses of water a day and exercising regularly to help the bowels to move normally.
During pregnancy and delivery hemorrhoids can occur due to anal pressure, constipation, and pushing. Hemorrhoids are also commonly known as piles. It is recommended to eat fiber during pregnancy to avoid constipation, which can lead to hemorrhoidal issues. See a proctologist if you are suffering from hemorrhoids during or after pregnancy.
Internal hemorrhoids that prolapse and protrude can often cause bright red bleeding. Mostly this is painless bleeding seen on the toilet paper with wiping.
External skin tags or External hemorrhoidal tissue usually doesn’t cause bleeding. These external hemorrhoids can cause itching and problems with hygiene.
While hemorrhoids may not be cured with topical treatment, symptomatic relief from pain and itching can be obtained with over-the-counter creams such as Preparation H and Lidocaine, or prescriptions medications like Nifedipine cream.
Thrombosed hemorrhoids are blood clots in a hemorrhoid. This can result in itching around your anus, bleeding when you have a bowel movement, and swelling or lumps around the anus.
There are many causes of thrombosed hemorrhoids, including excessive straining with bowel movement when constipated, diarrhea, abnormal and irregular bowel movements, pregnancy and postpartum state, and prolonged sitting (for example, during travel, working at a desk, etc.)
We use rubber band ligation (RBL) as our standard for hemorrhoid surgery. The doctor places a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid, which in result stops the blood supply and causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off. A hemorrhoidectomy is another choice for hemorrhoid surgery. The procedure removes the hemorrhoid, blood clot and blood vessels. You may get partial anesthesia during this procedure and a hemorrhoidectomy is only performed for the most severe hemorrhoid cases.
How to treat hemorrhoids is based on a patient’s individual condition. Most cases require one to three appointments to prevent recurrence.
Many patients ask us: “Will the hemorrhoids go away on their own?”
The answer lies in the lifestyle choices you make following treatment.
