Hemorrhoid banding is the most popular form of hemorrhoid treatment in the world. But even though banding yields more success stories than any other form of treatment, some sufferers of hemorrhoids are still apprehensive.
The concern about pain and recovery time following a hemorrhoid banding procedure likely stems from traditional banding – which can be slightly painful, yielding a recovery time of around one to two days. The CRH O’Regan System, on the other hand, significantly reduces or eliminates recovery time and pain is removed from the equation completely.
The CRH O’Regan banding procedure has improved upon traditional banding by utilizing gentler tools and a more precise method of band placement. Specifically, the doctor gently suctions each hemorrhoid slightly away from the body so that he or she can place a band around the base of the hemorrhoid where no nerve endings are present. The patient should feel no pain during the procedure and only a pressure or sense of fullness during recovery. Since conventional banding yields some pain in the days following the procedure, by eliminating that pain, we also greatly reduce or eliminate the recovery time!
For more information about band ligation, including recovery time and the overall effectiveness of the procedure, talk to your doctor. Simply find a physician in your area who is familiar with the CRH O’Regan procedure and set yourself on the road toward a life free of hemorrhoids!
