Piles Treatment & Surgery in Kondapur, Hyderabad
Piles surgery or hemorrhoidectomy is the process of removing swollen blood cells, support tissue, elastic, or fibres inside or around the rectum and anus. These swollen blood cells are called haemorrhoids.
Haemorrhoids are caused due to increased pressure in the rectum which can form in bulges or piles either internally or externally. This arises because of chronic constipation, pregnancy, lifting heavy weights, chronic diarrhoea or trouble in passing a stool.
Piles may have the tendency to be genetic and are common in older age. To treat the piles, there are various surgical and non-surgical methods recommended by the doctor. There are four grades of piles found in the medical history and treated according to their severity.
How is Piles Surgery Performed?
Below explained are the types of piles surgery at Apollo Kondapur;
Rubber band ligation
This process involves restricting the swollen blood cell at the base using a rubber band. This will block the blood supply in the affected area and ultimately lead to falling off on its own.
The coagulation process includes the use of infrared light or electric current to create scar tissue on the haemorrhoid. This tissue will restrict the blood supply to the swollen blood cells, leading to its fall.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution into internal haemorrhoids or piles. This solution is used to reduce pain by making nerve endings numb around the area. This too forms scar tissue and falls off on its own.
The process is performed in the hospital where the patient is under general anaesthesia. The doctor will cut-open the anus and the swollen blood cells. After removing the swollen tissues, the surgeon will seal the wounds.
This procedure is used in treating internal piles which may have been prolapsed or grown large. Haemorrhoid stapling involves stapling the haemorrhoids into the normal position and within the anal canal. Stapling blocks the blood supply to the swollen tissues and tends to reduce in size slowly.
