Non-Surgical Symptomatic Hemorrhoid Removal

Hemorrhoid artery embolization is a non-surgical approach used to treat symptomatic hemorrhoids. This minimally invasive procedure offers a high success rate, reduced risk of complications, minimal discomfort, and faster recovery.

Hemorrhoids can be a distressing and embarrassing condition, affecting millions of people worldwide. While there are various treatment options available for hemorrhoids, hemorrhoid artery embolization has emerged as a superior option compared to hemorrhoid removal surgery.

Hemorrhoid artery embolization (HAE) blocks the blood supply to the hemorrhoids, causing them to shrink and die. It is the introduction of tiny particles (embolic materials) into the arteries, effectively obstructing the hemorrhoids' nutrients, causing the hemorrhoids to diminish, along with the painful symptoms.

During HAE, a small catheter is inserted into the arteries that transport blood to the hemorrhoids. These arteries are then blocked using tiny particles or coils, which cut off the blood supply to the hemorrhoids. Without a blood supply, the hemorrhoids shrink and eventually disappear.

Why Is Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization Effective for Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Removal?

HAE has revolutionized the treatment of internal grade 2-3 hemorrhoids and is considered a superior treatment for the following reasons

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Hemorrhoid artery embolization is a minimally invasive procedure offering several advantages over traditional surgical methods. Unlike conventional surgery, HAE does not require incisions, resulting in reduced pain and shorter recovery periods. The process involves cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoids, leading to their shrinkage and alleviation of symptoms.

High Success Rate

Numerous clinical studies have consistently shown that HAE has a high success rate in treating internal grade 2-3 hemorrhoids. The procedure effectively reduces hemorrhoidal symptoms such as bleeding, itching, and discomfort. Additionally, HAE has been found to significantly improve patients' overall quality of life.

Reduced Risk of Complications

Compared to traditional hemorrhoidectomy, HAE presents a lower risk of complications. Since HAE is a minimally invasive procedure, there is a reduced chance of infection, bleeding, and other surgical complications. The use of advanced imaging techniques during HAE ensures accurate targeting of the hemorrhoidal arteries, minimizing the risk of damage to surrounding tissues.

Outpatient Procedure

Hemorrhoid artery embolization is commonly performed on an outpatient basis, enabling patients to go home on the same day. This outpatient nature of the procedure reduces hospital stays and associated costs. Patients can resume their normal activities faster, minimizing disruptions to their daily lives.

Minimal Discomfort and Faster Recovery

With HAE, patients experience minimal discomfort both during and after the procedure. Since there are no incisions involved, post-operative pain is significantly reduced compared to traditional surgery. Patients generally experience a faster recovery and return to their routine activities sooner.

Accessible and More Cost-Effective Than Surgery

HAE is a more cost-effective treatment option compared to hemorrhoid removal surgery. Hemorrhoid surgery can involve costly medical bills, lengthy hospital stays, and potential complications. Hemorrhoid artery embolization, on the other hand, is performed as an outpatient procedure, making it a more affordable option for patients.
