Non Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatments

Hemorrhoid Banding/Ligation

Rubber band ligation is a simple non-surgical, outpatient procedure. Even though it involves placing a small elastic-type band around the bottom of the hemorrhoid to cut off the blood supply. Importantly this causes hemorrhoids to shrink and the tissue surrounding it to form a scar. Finally, the scarring acts as an anchor and holds the hemorrhoid in place.


Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which a surgeon injects a chemical solution into the hemorrhoid tissue, causing it to shrink. In reality, the procedure causes little to no pain but may be less effective than other treatments.

Infrared Coagulation (IRC)

IRC is effective on small internal bleeding hemorrhoids and causes them to shrivel, harden, and disappear. Infrared coagulation normally causes little discomfort and has very few side effects.

Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation (HAL)

HAL sometimes called HAL Doppler is a minimally invasive and virtually painless technique used to treat and remove hemorrhoids. The surgeon can locate the exact location of the hemorrhoidal arteries using a miniature ultrasound or Doppler guidance device. Then, the surgeon cuts off the blood supply using a suture, causing them to shrink. Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation is most effective for low to medium-grade hemorrhoids.

RAR (Recto Anal Repair)

When a hemorrhoid protrudes (hanging down into the anal cavity or coming out of the anus). The surgeon must repair and place it back in the correct position. Subsequently, stitching the prolapsed hemorrhoid back into place against the side of the rectum using a specialized instrument. The stitches eventually form scar tissue which effectively anchors hemorrhoids indefinitely. RAR involves no cutting, entails minimal pain, and offers a quick recovery.

Hemorrhoidopexy also called a stapled hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure. It involves the removal of abnormally large hemorrhoidal tissue. Followed by the repositioning of the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue to its proper location. Surgeons use a special medical stapling device to reduce the blood supply to the hemorrhoids, causing them to shrink.
