Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. There are non-invasive techniques to treat hemorrhoids, however, your doctor may recommend additional treatments for hemorrhoids if you do not get relief from symptoms using home treatments and lifestyle changes.

Advanced hemorrhoidal treatments include:

  • Rubber band ligation which cuts off circulation to the hemorrhoid causing it to shrink
  • Sclerotherapy in which a chemical solution is injected into the blood vessel shrinking the hemorrhoid.
  • Infrared coagulation which uses heat to shrink the hemorrhoid

Large external hemorrhoids or internal hemorrhoids may require surgical treatment.
