Hadley Wood Hospital offers a number of treatment options for haemorrhoids, commonly known as ‘piles’.
What does haemorrhoid surgery involve?
Haemorrhoids, commonly known as ‘piles’, are swellings that appear in and around the rectum and anus, due to enlarged blood vessels.
Traditional haemorrhoid surgery involves carefully surgically removing the haemorrhoids. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic but you should be able to go home the same or next day. Most people need one or two weeks off work afterwards, depending on the extent of the surgery, and pain relief medication can help with the discomfort while your body heals. The surgery has high success rates with minimal chances of the haemorrhoids returning in the future, compared with non-surgical treatments.
