Hemorrhoid Treatment Methods

How to heal a hemorrhoid? How to get rid of hemorrhoids? The first recorded hemorrhoid cure was in 600 BC when Hippocrates performed the first removal of hemorrhoids. He tied a thread around a prolapsing hemorrhoid causing it to fall off. Today, we have options for treatment that still include ligation. The hemorrhoid doctor now uses latex rubber bands. Mountain Streams Medical Center offers an injection to cure hemorrhoids known as sclerotherapy (Sclero or Sclerosis) as well as infrared coagulation (IRC). The latter method is often referred to as “laser treatment.”

Over the years, there have been many methods of hemorrhoid treatment which have included the non-surgical treatments like hemorrhoid cream, as well as hemorrhoid surgery procedures like hemorrhoidectomy surgery, stapled hemorrhoidectomy surgery (PPH), transhemorrhoidal dearterialization surgery (THD) and traditional laser hemorrhoid surgery. Of all these methods, Mountain Streams Medical Center utilizes the most advanced and patient-friendly techniques to cure hemorrhoids that can be performed in a physician’s office. Our hemorrhoid doctor uses non-surgical treatments exclusively – Sclero, RBL and IRC.
