Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy (HET) Procedure

This is a hemorrhoid treatment procedure offered at our endoscopy center that uses energy therapy and is complete after one session.

Common symptoms that may require treatment include:

  • Rectal bleeding during bowel movements

  • Prolapse (tissue coming outside of the anus during bowel movements)

  • Itching or discomfort in the anal area

The HET Bipolar System is a technology that allows for the gentle, simple and efficient non- surgical treatment of hemorrhoids in a single procedure. Low-grade heat energy is applied next to the hemorrhoids to minimize blood flow to the area and reduce the inflamed hemorrhoids.

Treatment with the HET system is a fast therapy that typically takes only minutes to complete, and you will be placed under a light anesthesia. Multiple hemorrhoids can be treated in a single therapy. A driver is required for this procedure due to the anesthesia.

Ask your physician why Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy may be the best treatment option for you!
