Dr Rowan Collinson - General & Colorectal Surgeon
Haemorrhoids are a condition where the veins under the lining of the anus are congested and enlarged. Less severe haemorrhoids can be managed with simple treatments such as injection or banding which can be performed in the clinic while larger ones will require surgery.
Haemorrhoidectomy: each haemorrhoid or pile is tied off and then cut away.
Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy: a circular stapling device is used to pull the haemorrhoid tissue back into its normal position.
