Hemorrhoid banding – CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Removal System

Hemorrhoid banding – CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Removal System

Hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation, is a fast and nonsurgical approach to hemorrhoid treatment.

During the brief and painless banding procedure, your physician will use a gentle suction device to place a small rubber band around the base of the internal hemorrhoid where there are no pain-sensitive nerve endings. The procedure typically takes less than 60 seconds. Once the band is in place, it cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing the banded tissue to fall off, typically within a few days.  The hemorrhoid will then shrink, relieving your symptoms.
