Laser Surgery for Hemorrhoids (Piles)

Laser hemorrhoid surgery is the most popular and effective procedure that employs laser energy for the treatment of hemorrhoids. The procedure is called laser hemorrhoidectomy and hemorrhoids are removed with the help of laser without damaging the adjoining tissue.
Indications for Laser Hemorrhoidectomy
Very large external hemorrhoids
Prolapsed internal hemorrhoids
Internal hemorrhoids that still cause symptoms after nonsurgical treatment
Large external hemorrhoids that cause significant discomfort and make it difficult to keep the anal area clean
Failed other methods of treatments for hemorrhoids
An especially trained surgeon performs the procedure using infinitely small laser beams. The laser beams are accurately pinpointed to heat the problematic vein (one or more in a single sitting). This leads to vaporizing or excision of hemorrhoids, which essentially causes them to collapse and disintegrate.
