Hemorrhoidectomy
The doctors give local anaesthesia and general anaesthesia to make small cuts around the anus to remove the haemorrhoids away. The patient is discharged on the same day from the hospital. He should take a rest as he can feel pain due to the stitches around the anus. It may take around 3 to 6 weeks to feel normal.


● Procedure for Prolapse and Haemorrhoids (PPH)
With the help of a stapler device, the doctor cuts the blood supply of the haemorrhoids. In absence of the blood supply, the haemorrhoids die. This treatment is better than the conventional surgical treatment i.e. Hemorrhoidectomy because the patient feels less pain and recovers soon.

● Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation and Recto Anal Repair (HAL-RAR)
HAL-RAR is a new surgical treatment that reduces haemorrhoids within a few weeks. In this process, a Doppler sensor is used to identify the arteries that are responsible to supply blood to haemorrhoids. Then, the haemorrhoids are tied, and the blood supply is cut off. This is a more effective surgical treatment for curing haemorrhoids. At Savaikar Hospital, we operate the patients with the safest measures. Doctors usually recommend the operative treatment to the patients when it becomes an urgent requirement, otherwise, high-fibre food is recommended to avoid this problem.
