Haemorrhoidectomy

For a vast majority of the population, complaints with haemorrhoids and the perianal region is a source of great discomfort. Haemorrhoids, or piles, are essentially swollen veins that develop inside the rectum or outside the anus due to chronic constipation and hard stool. It is a very common problem and one which does not discriminate between age groups. 

Whilst these often heal on their own, without requiring medical treatment, there are instances when haemorrhoids may become so enlarged and swollen that they produce unpleasant symptoms like prolapse, haemorrhage and intense pain, especially if they get thrombosed. When such symptoms do not improve with at-home treatments, it might be time to consider a haemorrhoidectomy.

Typical Uses

Haemorrhoid removal may be necessary if:

Whilst haemorrhoid removal is a very effective treatment, it is also an invasive treatment. Therefore, this procedure is usually reserved as a last-resort option for when less invasive treatment options have failed to resolve the condition, such as:

  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Easing the symptoms using topical and oral remedies
  • Non-surgical treatments

What It Entails

Our team has revolutionised haemorrhoid treatment using our latest combined technique of Laser and Doppler Haemorrhoidectomy. This ensures a minimally invasive, bloodless and painless approach on a day-care basis.

Laser technique includes photocoagulation of the external piles in the common positions of haemorrhoids (LHP). On the other hand, Doppler refers to ultrasound-guided ligation of the haemorrhoidal blood supply (dearterialization – HAL), placation of the mucosa for simultaneous reduction of the prolapse, and excellent aesthetic and functional result (RAR). By avoiding excision of tissue, these techniques are both painless and promote recovery and overall satisfaction.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

During your consultation, you will meet with our surgeon to discuss your referral and voice your primary health concerns. At this time, you will have the opportunity to share any information about your symptoms - including any pain, imaging tests, medications and blood test results - and ask any questions that you might have to put your mind at ease.

Our doctor will also use this time to assess your overall health and fitness, and determine your suitability for haemorrhoid removal surgery.

2.During the procedure

During the surgical procedure, a general anaesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort throughout. Once the anaesthesia has taken effect, our surgeon will start by using an avant-garde, minimally invasive approach that combines the Laser and Doppler Haemorrhoidectomy techniques. After a 45-minute procedure, patients are able to return to their normal activities and jobs within 48 hours.

3.After the treatment

Before going home to recover from surgery, you will be given specific instructions on: how to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery, what medications to apply or take orally to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

Patients typically start to recover by the end of the first week. Post-treatment, you will be able to resume non-strenuous activities after a week and you should be able to resume all normal activities within two to three weeks

Frequently Asked Questions

As with any major surgical procedure, side effects may occur, and the risks and potential complications will be discussed in detail during the initial consultation. The possible risks of haemorrhoid removal may include:

  • slow healing
  • small tears that can cause pain that lasts several months
  • narrowing of the anus (stenosis) due to scar tissue
  • damage to sphincter muscles, which can lead to incontinence
    urinary retention
  • Infection

Typically, to diagnose you of haemorrhoids your doctor will identifying the symptoms and conduct a physical exam. Other options include:

  • A digital rectal exam
  • An Anoscopy
  • A Colonoscopy
  • A Sigmoidoscopy

Whilst the surgery itself typically cures hemorrhoids, the long-term success of haemorrhoid surgery is highly dependent on how well you are able to change your daily bowel habits to avoid constipation and straining. A small percentage of patients will experience a return of their haemorrhoids and will need to repeat the surgery.

Follow-Up Procedures

As you recover from this treatment, follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing and ensure that your recovery is progressing without complications.
