Hemorrhoid Surgery Q & A

What are Hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins that develop in your lower rectum or anus, often resulting due to straining during bowel movements or childbirth. These swollen veins can develop inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) or under the skin around the anal opening (external hemorrhoids).

While hemorrhoids are a very common condition, they can worsen without treatment and cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, like anal itching, bleeding, and pain.

In some cases, a clot may form in the vein, a condition known as a thrombosed hemorrhoid. While usually harmless, a thrombosed hemorrhoid can become extremely painful and cause difficulties with your overall mobility.

Will I Need Surgery for Hemorrhoids?

Initially, you may need to try home remedies like warm baths or topical medications to alleviate hemorrhoid pain. When your pain continues or worsens, you may be a good candidate for surgery.

Hemorrhoid surgery is usually the last resort for alleviating your pain and other symptoms when nonsurgical treatments don’t work.

What Types of Hemorrhoid Surgery May Be Performed?

The surgeons at Naab Road Surgical Group offer hemorrhoid surgeries that can address the swollen veins and relieve your pain and other symptoms.

Surgery known as a hemorrhoidectomy involves removing the hemorrhoid. This is an ideal option for treating hemorrhoid symptoms and preventing additional complications, such as bladder dysfunction and urinary tract infections due to recurrent hemorrhoids.

If you have internal hemorrhoids, your surgeon may recommend a different procedure that uses stapling techniques to cut off blood flow through the vein. This treatment may be less painful and has a shorter recovery time than a hemorrhoidectomy.

If painful or recurrent hemorrhoids are interfering with your quality of life, schedule a surgical consultation with the experienced team at Naab Road Surgical Group. Call the office in Indianapolis or use the online booking feature today.
