Does the CRH O’Regan system work?
Is CRH O’Regan system painful? Is CRH O’Regan system safe?
Here you will find honest answers from a non-surgical hemorrhoid removal professional, but the first thing everyone should know about CRH O’Regan System is this – The promotional information published on the CRH O’Regan website is incomplete and merits a second look.
Why NOT the CRH O’Regan System?
The CRH O’Regan non surgical hemorrhoid removal system is expensive. It is a single use, disposable product, and in my practice of non-surgical hemorrhoid removal I do not find it to be any more effective than standard rubber band ligation. The CRH disposable bands are actually LESS effective, BAD for the environment and more EXPENSIVE for the patient.
The non-green non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment is environmentally unfriendly
Consumers beware, this is a very wasteful, environmentally unfriendly treatment system. In my specialty medical practice of non-surgical hemorrhoid removal, I’ve used the disposable O’Regan bands. CRH O’Regan bands are less effective than standard rubber band treatment for hemorrhoid removal, because they require multiple treatments of an individual area. PLUS the need to dispose of multiple bands after a single use is bad for the environment.
We save our patients money, protect the environment and ensure patient safety with a 3-step hospital-grade sterilization process of our equipment. CRH O’Regan has a super expensive disposable piece of plastic that they are trying to sell every doctor. There are many times the hemorrhoid does not even qualify for this type of treatment so the doctors who advertise that they use O’Regan revert to treating with traditional methods.
Is it painful? The self-serving medical study CRH O’Regan references in its marketing material was in fact performed under the direction of the individual who holds the medical patent. The O’Regan System claims there is minimal pain – not true- our patients report it is painful. It’s not 99% effective. My experience shows otherwise.
According to what study? The statistics O’Regan publishes are open to question. Where’s the 3rd party verification? Nowhere. The study touted as supporting the CRH O’Regan system was conducted and supervised by the holder of the patent. I question whether it is proper to conduct a study and then reference your own study to sell your product.
There are 3-8 sections and multiple vessels in a hemorrhoid area. The CRH O’Regan touts its system as superior because it takes only tiny little bites of the affected tissue. CRH O’Regan says that only small bits of tissue are removed: much of that is true. What O’Regan does not make clear is that the symptoms likely will come back and that in many cases the patient will need additional treatment. In my experience, the O’Regan does not live up to their promises.
CRH O’Regan’s literature is written to make you think their system will help with anal fissures but their system does not treat that condition. Consumer beware. Ask more questions. Much of what CRH O’Regan writes about its hemorrhoid removal system is promotional hype made more appealing by using the language of science.
