Rubber-Band Ligation (Banding)

During a Rubber-Band Ligation procedure, your doctor will place a small rubber band over the base of your internal hemorrhoid. This will cut off the blood flow to the hemorrhoid causing it to shrink and fall off. It usually takes approximately 1 week for this procedure to work.

While this treatment can cause pain and bleeding, it has been found to be more effective than others at preventing hemorrhoids from returning. 

In very rare cases this treatment may cause infection or blood clots.

Infrared Coagulation

During an Infrared Coagulation procedure, your doctor will focus an infrared light on to your hemorrhoid. The heat from the light will create scar tissue that will cut off the blood flow to the hemorrhoid. 

This procedure is usually painless and side effect free. However, unlike with the Rubber-Band Ligation treatment, hemorrhoids are more likely to return.
