Hemorrhoid Treatment

While hemorrhoids can be painful and extremely unpleasant, there are many effective hemorrhoid treatment options. These range from topical creams all the way to hemorrhoid surgery. Fortunately, hemorrhoids are not harmful to the body, and they rarely indicate a more serious condition. Despite this, they can cause pain and hardship on a daily basis, prompting many patients to seek treatment.

If you’re looking for relief from hemorrhoids, the Colorectal Center Los Angeles is the right place to be. We offer every form of hemorrhoid treatment available, delivered by highly experienced, board certified colorectal and hemorrhoids doctors. After a thorough diagnosis, we will determine which treatment method is best for you.

Hemorrhoid Treatment Options

For milder cases, hemorrhoids can be reduced by non-surgical methods. This may simply include eating a diet containing more fiber, as well as Tylenol to sooth the pain. Warm baths can provide relief when done several times a day. However, if symptoms persist with these methods, it may be necessary to seek professional help.

At the Colorectal Center Los Angeles, we offer comprehensive hemorrhoid treatment to help our patients find the relief they deserve. As an initial step, one of our experienced hemorrhoids doctors, Dr. Beth Moore or Dr. Zuri Murrell will perform a thorough examination to determine the nature and degree of your hemorrhoids. Once this is done, they can recommend the hemorrhoid treatment best suited to your needs.


As a surgical procedure that directly eliminates hemorrhoids, a hemorrhoidectomy offers patients total relief from the burden of hemorrhoids. It can be done under general or local anesthesia. This will be discussed with you before the hemorrhoid treatment begins.

During a hemorrhoidectomy, an incision is made around the hemorrhoid. To prevent bleeding, the swollen vein causing the hemorrhoid is tied off. From there, your colorectal surgeon will remove the hemorrhoid at its root. Once this is done, the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

Recovery from a hemorrhoidectomy takes 2-3 weeks. To get the best results from your hemorrhoid surgery, it is important to follow your doctor's post surgical guidelines. In this way, we can ensure your healing process is smooth and satisfying.

Hemorrhoid stapling

Also known as a hemorrhoidopexy, hemorrhoid stapling is an alternate method to remove hemorrhoids and close the wound. It uses a specific kind of circular stapling device. This is inserted into the rectum, where it ensnares the hemorrhoids. It then severs and removes the hemorrhoids while concurrently stapling the wound shut.

While a hemorrhoidopexy produces less pain following surgery than a hemorrhoidectomy, it has been associated with a greater risk of recurrence. However, there are many advantages to this procedure. During your initial consultation, your hemorrhoid doctor will review all options so together you can choose the best one.


Sclerotherapy is a type of injection therapy that reduces the size of veins. Because a hemorrhoid is simply a swollen vein, this type of hemorrhoid treatment is effective in reducing the size and symptoms associated with hemorrhoids.

During the procedure, a chemical solution is injected directly into the hemorrhoid. After sclerotherapy, the hemorrhoids will reduce and even disappear within several days.

Sclerotherapy offers patients many advantages, such as minimal pain, short recovery period and successful hemorrhoid treatment. Be sure to discuss this option with your hemorrhoid doctor during your initial consultation.

Trans-Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (THD)

In order to provide patients with no-incision methods for hemorrhoid relief, the Colorectal Center Los Angeles is proud to offer THD. This procedure begins by locating the hemorrhoid using ultrasound. Once this is done, your surgeon ties off the primary artery that is responsible for the hemorrhoid. By impeding blood flow, the hemorrhoid gradually decreases in both size and pain.

THD involves no cutting—only sutures that restrict the blood vessels. For this reason, it produces very little pain following the procedure, and recovery time is short.

If THD sounds like it may be helpful for your condition, please set an appointment with one of our colorectal specialists. With a thorough examination, your hemorrhoids doctor can determine if THD is the procedure for you. In any case, we can help you get through hemorrhoids and find relief.
