Hemorrhoids are an incredibly common disorder that happens in the anus, occurring when veins in the region become engorged. Over half the global population will experience some level of hemorrhoids in their lifetime and it’s important to know the best hemorrhoids treatments, and in this case, the best internal hemorrhoids treatment.
There are two different types of hemorrhoids: internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids occur within the rectum past a line of nerve endings called the dentate line. One of the distinguishing aspects of internal hemorrhoids is the fact that they are generally painless because they occur above this line of nerve endings and cannot be felt.
Although the different names make it seem like diagnosing internal vs. external hemorrhoids would be obvious, it couldn’t actually be farther from the truth. Diagnosing which of these two types can be especially difficult because prolapsed internal hemorrhoids often look like external hemorrhoids. Luckily, Ari Nowain, MD specializes in the diagnoses and treatment of hemorrhoids, specifically internal hemorrhoids, at his Beverly Hills office.
Before describing the best treatments for hemorrhoids, it’s important to have a general understanding of how hemorrhoids occur. There is not one thing that leads to hemorrhoids, more like a variety of factors that can create the disorder. Most of the time there are a few main factors that include diarrhea, pregnancy, constipation/straining, obesity, and prolonged sitting (especially on the toilet).
Once an expert gastroenterologist like Dr. Nowain has properly diagnosed your hemorrhoids, it’s time to treat them. Dr. Nowain believes the best non-surgical hemorrhoids treatment is a procedure called hemorrhoid band ligation (otherwise known as rubber band ligation or hembanding). Dr. Nowain utilizes the CRH O’Regan method of hemorrhoid banding because of its low risk of complication, low recovery time, and its procedural efficiency.
Hemorrhoid Banding Ligation Is The Best Internal Hemorrhoids Treatment
Unlike traditional hemorrhoid surgery, hemorrhoid banding does not involve putting a patient completely to sleep. Hemorrhoid banding is performed away from the nerve line (dentate line) so the procedure does not require any anesthesia. Dr. Nowain uses a one time use, disposable tool that gently suctions the hemorrhoid in place and then places a small rubber band at the hemorrhoid’s base. The rubber band cuts off the blood supply of the hemorrhoid, which results in it falling off a few days after the procedure. The entire process is painless, quick, and simple. Additionally, traditional surgeries costs a lot more to undergo than hemorrhoid band ligation, which can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Nowain’s office in a matter of minutes.
