Hemorrhoid Ligation

This is a hemorrhoid treatment procedure done in an office setting that requires no sedation. It takes 3 sessions to complete but is also a painless procedure and very effective.Hemorrhoid banding is for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids using a ligator that places a small rubber band around the base of the hemorrhoid, cutting off the blood supply to that swollen vein. This in turn shrinks the hemorrhoid and will cause it to fall off unnoticeably over the next few days.Most people can return to normal activities the same day; however, you will be instructed to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise the day of the banding. No driver is required.
