Hemorrhoids are cushions of vascular tissue that are a normal part of the anal anatomy. When these tissues enlarge, bleeding and discomfort occur. Treatment may include dietary changes and topical medication.
Large hemorrhoids may require surgery such as PPH (Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids). This procedure reduces the enlarged hemorrhoidal tissue, and is a less painful procedure compared to a conventional hemorrhoidectomy. Patients also recover faster than patients who undergo a conventional hemorrhoidectomy procedure. Our physicians will discuss the best treatment plan for your condition.
