The hemorrhoid laser procedure is known as one of the modern techniques that may be used by many specialists of general and laparoscopic surgery after the failure of drugs and the usual methods of changing the quality of food and others to rid the patient of hemorrhoid. General and laparoscopic specialists rely on lasers that shrink the hemorrhoid through a very small opening through which the rays are inserted.

Treatment Description

A hemorrhoid is defined as a group of swollen blood vessels (such as veins) that appear around the anus or in the inner cavity of it (external hemorrhoid) or in the lower rectum (internal hemorrhoid). Hemorrhoids are four stages, vary depending on their severity, while grade 1 and 2 symptoms are slightly discomfort and some pain during abowel movement, grade 3 and 4 hemorrhoids are often more severe and may be associated with bleeding, so the medical intervention is necessary.

Laser hemorrhoidectomy is one of the modern methods that can rid the patient of the hemorrhoid in a short time and with less pain compared to traditional hemorrhoid surgery, in addition to a shorter period of full recovery.

What Is The Reason to Undergo Laser Hemorrhoidectomy?

A general and laparoscopic surgeon can decide a patient’s laser hemorrhoidectomy surgery because of a range of uncomfortable symptoms that make daily activities difficult. For example, in cases of external hemorrhoids; a swollen lump of veins accompanied by itching and pain, especially when defecating, which is disturbing and requires visiting a surgeon to remove it, while in case of internal hemorrhoids; it prolapse or protrudes from the anus accompanied with bleeding with each bowel movement process, which is painful and intolerable.

Constipation is one of the most common causes of hemorrhoids due to digestion problems because of low-fiber diet and not taking a healthy food which are beneficial for the body. Obesity can be another factor that increases the incidence of hemorrhoids.
