KNOW ABOUT LASER SURGERY TREATMENT FOR PILES
For many patients, the morning trip to the toilet is an ordeal, associated with pain and bleeding while passing stools. They may have piles, with or without painful cuts in the anus (fissures). While medicines offer temporary relief the problem invariably recurs.
What can you feel?
Patients often experience discomfort associated with the embarrassment of a pus discharge in the perianal region or back. They may be suffering from fistula–in-ano, or a pilonidal sinus.
People are reluctant to discuss these issues due to embarrassment and suffer silently for years without seeking treatment. Hundreds of medical therapies are offered in the market under various systems of medicine – allopathic or otherwise, and yet they only bring temporary relief from the symptoms. The problem continues to persist.
Treatment for Piles-
Often definitive treatment means Surgery, which involves cutting in the affected areas and is commonly known to be painful, with a prolonged recovery, multiple dressings, and visits to the clinic. Despite undergoing so much discomfort, there is a significant risk of recurrence.
Newer advances in surgery are now available which can make the whole experience much better.
Stapled surgeries are now done for larger piles with significantly reduced pain and recovery time. These surgeries are ideal for patients with large prolapsing piles.
Laser Treatment for Piles
Laser surgery, however, is even less invasive. No tissues need to be cut. The affected area is simply treated with laser energy in a precise and focused manner and the problem is solved within a few minutes. Patients can resume their normal lives immediately after surgery.
What can be treated with laser surgery?
Currently, we offer laser treatments for the following conditions:
- Fistula in ano
- Pilonidal sinus
- Varicose veins in the legs
What happens after surgery?
The process takes only a few minutes, and patients can be discharged the same day. There are no cuts, stitches, wounds or dressings. There is negligible pain or bleeding. They can have a normal diet within 4 hours of the procedure and can resume their routine work within 24 to 48 hours. There are no restrictions and no repeat visits to the doctor.
