Your doctor may have already told you about the CRH O’Regan System – there are over 2,000 physicians in the United States trained on this ‘gold standard’ hemorrhoid treatment – and you’ve found us to learn more about our revolutionary treatment process.
The CRH O’Regan System uses a single-use ligator to painlessly apply a tiny rubber band around the affected tissue. This patented, FDA-approved procedure is used in hundreds of physicians’ offices every day, providing complete relief to tens of thousands of hemorrhoid sufferers every year.
The Center for Disease Control has shared that healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) account for nearly 2 million infections per year. The single-use, disposable device used by your physician eliminates the risk of HAIs, providing you with a safe and worry-free treatment.
The CRH O’Regan System can be used for almost anyone experiencing grade I through III hemorrhoids, as well as some of those who may be suffering from grade IV hemorrhoids. The CRH O’Regan System has been used effectively time and time again to treat patients whose previous options were limited to surgery.
If you’re suffering from any of the following symptoms, consult your physician to find out if the CRH O’Regan System is right for you:
In addition to reducing the risk of HAIs, the specially-designed ligator pulls down the affected tissue via a manual, gentle suction mechanism; a painless process, especially when compared to the metal clamps required for other rubber band ligation methods.
Most patients suffering from hemorrhoids have three affected areas; to further reduce the chance of complications your physician will likely treat only one hemorrhoid at a time. This has helped us maintain a complication rate of less than 1%. The CRH O’Regan System has significantly fewer complaints of post-procedure pain or bleeding: less than .2%, which is markedly better than the 4 – 29% reported by patients treated with other rubber banding techniques.
With other rubber band ligation treatments, such as endoscopic banding, you are usually required to fast before your treatment and you will often be sedated for the procedure. This isn’t necessary with the CRH O’Regan System, which doesn’t require any preparation, and patients treated through our process can typically return to work the same day.
The CRH O’Regan System was the focus of a medical study, and after reviewing over 6,500 patients with 20,000 banded hemorrhoids, over 99% reported little to no post-procedural pain.
Another benefit of the CRH O’Regan System is the speed: the treatment takes less than a minute, can sometimes be performed during your initial examination, and there are no restrictions to follow during your recovery.
Not all hemorrhoid treatment options are the same. Ask your doctor about the CRH O’Regan System, and get your life back to normal. Painlessly and permanently.
