Treating Your Hemorrhoids

Your gastroenterologists in Miami, Hialeah, Coral Gables, and Pembroke Pines, FL, can help you get relief from hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are a topic most people don’t like to talk about, but they can be very painful. They are also a common problem, affecting half of the population by the time they turn 50 years old. The good news is, your gastroenterologist is an expert at treating hemorrhoids, so you can get back to your life.

The gastroenterologists at Digestive Medicine Associates offer a wide variety of GI services, including treatment for hemorrhoids. They have several convenient office locations in Miami, Hialeah, Coral Gables, and Pembroke Pines, FL, to help you feel better.

So, what causes hemorrhoids? Hemorrhoids are caused by continuous pressure from sitting for long periods. The pressure causes constriction of the veins in the lining of the rectum and anus. You are at increased risk of developing hemorrhoids if you are pregnant, obese, or have an occupation like truck driving, where you sit for long periods of time.

For a small hemorrhoid with mild hemorrhoid pain, you can try over-the-counter creams to shrink the hemorrhoid. For larger hemorrhoids, it’s best to visit your gastroenterologist. Your GI specialist may recommend hemorrhoid banding. It works like this:

Using suction, a band is placed at the base of the hemorrhoid, cutting off the blood supply. When the hemorrhoid doesn’t have enough blood flow, it will shrink and fall off in a few days. Hemorrhoid banding offers a permanent solution to relieve hemorrhoids and hemorrhoid pain.

In addition to being a permanent solution to eliminate hemorrhoids, hemorrhoid banding offers several additional advantages, including:

  • Pain-free treatment, with no need for sedation
  • Quick treatment, completed in a few minutes
  • Easy treatment, with no preparation required
  • Convenient treatment, requiring no downtime

You don’t have to suffer from painful, embarrassing hemorrhoids when relief is just a phone call away.
