Hemorrhoid Center

The Hemorrhoid Center at Texas Colon and Pilonidal Clinic is your one stop for comprehensive hemorrhoid care. We take care of all types and grades of hemorrhoidal disease using both office based and hospital based approaches where appropriate.

What are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are normal vascular cushions present in the anal canal. Every person has them! They contribute to maintaining fecal continence. They are not usually symptomatic.
Symptomatic hemorrhoids are a common problem. It is estimated that about fifty percent of adults will develop hemorrhoid symptoms by the time they are 50

Risk Factors for Symptomatic Hemorrhoids

You may be at greater risk of developing hemorrhoids if you are pregnant, overweight, strain or you have a job which requires you to sit for a long period of time, such as truck driving.

How do I know my hemorrhoids are symptomatic?

When they become a source of discomfort, bleed, or get inflamed, they may require some sort of treatment.

There are two types of hemorrhoids – internal and external.

What You Can Do at Home To Get Relief From Hemorrhoid Discomfort

There are over the counter products to help shrink swelling, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain caused by hemorrhoids. These products can help with mild, occasional hemorrhoid discomfort. Sitting in warm water (sitz bath) also helps.

What various treatments do you offer?

At our Hemorrhoid Center, we believe “One size does NOT fit all”. Our approach to treatment of hemorrhoids is both comprehensive and individualized. In all situations, addressing any risk factors and appropriate life style changes are important for successful treatment of hemorrhoid disease.
We offer in office treatment of both symptomatic internal and external hemorrhoids.

External hemorrhoids tend to be associated with thrombosis (blood clots) when symptomatic. At our Hemorrhoid Center, we offer excision of thrombosed external hemorrhoids. We also offer excision of hemorrhoidal tags.

On the other hand, symptomatic internal hemorrhoids present commonly present with rectal bleeding and hemorrhoid prolapse. For these, management depends on multiple factors including the severity of the hemorrhoids. Some in office treatments we offer are:

  • Rubber band ligation – using a banding system, suction is used to place a band at the base of the hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink, shrivel up and fall within a few days. There is very minimal discomfort associated with this.
  • Infra red coagulation

Not uncommonly, hemorrhoidal disease may need to be managed in a hospital setting under anesthesia using surgical techniques such as:

  • Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (THD) Surgery
  • Surgical Hemorrhoidectomy
