For most hemorrhoid sufferers, at home remedies and over the counter medications are usually enough to keep the itching, burning and pain under control.
But for those who have severe cases of hemorrhoids these methods will not help alleviate the pain and irritation at all.
If your hemorrhoids have become extremely large and cause you intense pain, swelling and even bleeding it is time for you to seek medical attention for other treatment options including surgery to get rid of your condition.
One newer treatment for hemorrhoids that is growing in popularity is Hemorrhoids Laser Treatment.
With this method of treatment, a small laser is used to eliminate the hemorrhoid while simultaneously vaporizing it.
There is also very little bleeding using laser treatment for hemorrhoids because the laser cauterizes the blood vessels while removing the hemorrhoid, thus eliminating the need for stitches.
Benefits of Hemorrhoids Laser Treatment
Other benefits of laser treatment of hemorrhoids is that there is very little down time, most patients can resume normal activities within a day or two. They are able to do this because the tissue surrounding the hemorrhoids are not harmed, swelling, scaring and bleeding are significantly reduced and the procedure is a lot less costly than other hemorrhoid removal methods.
These are some of the reasons why this has become one of the more popular hemorrhoid treatment methods.
For most patients undergoing hemorrhoid laser treatment no overnight hospital stay is required.
Of course with any surgical procedure there are some risks such as the slight chance that the area could become infected but this is very rare and the benefits of hemorrhoid laser treatment far outweigh the risks.
Because the method used for hemorrhoids laser treatmentdoes not leave an open wound or require stitches the patient only experiences minor discomforts and will have a much faster recovery time than they would normally have with traditional surgeries.
