Hemorrhoid Banding Procedure – CRH O’Regan System
New Procedure- For internal hemorrhoid treatment
CRH O’Regan System has been considered the “gold standard” treatment for internal hemorrhoid with bleeding.
This procedure is highly effective (99.1%),
Minimally invasive procedure is performed in offices in less than a minute. If there are multiple hemorrhoids, we treat them one at a time in separate visits, usually 2 weeks apart.
During the brief and painless procedure, a small rubber band will be placed by physician around the tissue just above the hemorrhoid where there are few pain-sensitive nerve endings. Unlike traditional banding techniques that use a metal-toothed clamp to grasp the tissue, we use a gentle suction device, reducing the risk of pain and bleeding.
Our banding procedure works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off, typically within a day or so. You probably won’t even notice when this happens or be able to spot the rubber band in the toilet. Once the hemorrhoid is gone, the wound usually heals in a week or two. During the first 24 hours, some patients may experience a feeling of fullness or a dull ache in the rectum. This can typically be relieved with an over-the-counter pain medication. A remarkable 99.8% of patients treated with our method have no post-procedure pain.
Because of this innovated design improvements, This procedure has a ten-fold reduction in complications compared to traditional banding.
For one, our instruments are smaller, affording greater comfort for patients and better visibility for physicians. Unlike other devices, they are also single use and 100% disposable.
What to expect
The first appointment will consist of a consultation with a physician. Your might need colonoscopy or flexsigmoidoscopy, which depends on your clinic symptoms and your age, if you are at age 50 and never had colonoscopy before.
If the diagnosis is internal hemorrhoids, hemorrhoids banding procedure will be scheduled. Usually 3 appointments, 2 weeks apart, are required in order to completely band the three internal hemorrhoid feeding vessels anatomically distributed in the rectum.
Following hemorrhoid banding, we recommend that you rest at home for the remainder of the day and resume full activity the next day. You can have normal bowel movements during this time, but you may want to soak in a sitz bath (a warm tub with a tablespoon of table salt added) or use to a bidet for a gentler cleansing of the anal opening.
Soon you’ll be feeling much better, but you’ll need to make some changes to prevent future problems. Straining due to constipation should be diligently avoided, so be sure to drink seven or eight glasses of water (around 50 ounces) a day and add two tablespoons of natural oat or wheat bran to your diet. (Metamucil, Benefibre, flax or other soluble fiber may be helpful as well.)
We also recommend that you not sit longer than two minutes on the toilet. If you can’t have a bowel movement in that time, come back later. This two-minute rule can help keep you from straining during bowel movements without realizing it. Finally, when traveling by air, stay hydrated, avoid alcohol, eat fiber and walk around when you can.
The CRH O’Regan System is appropriate for an estimated 90% of hemorrhoid patients. Only the most severe cases require surgery (hemorroidectomy), which is just one more reason not to delay treatment. If you wait too long – and your hemorrhoids grow too large – your non-surgical options decrease.
