Very quick, completely painless, effective and isn't any more uncomfortable than having a regular rectal exam in the office.
Belmont, NC (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
Hemorrhoids is one of those things no one usually talks about in public, but can be a real source of significant suffering. Several treatment modalities exist but are generally ineffective or too uncomfortable. Surgery comes with downtime and significant post operative pain and discomfort. Numerous topical preparations exist, including many that are hawked on the internet, which provide temporary relief at best. Banding has been one of the most viable forms of hemorrhoidal treatment. It can be done in an office setting quickly and produce substantial and fairly rapid relief. However, it typically used to be performed through inserting a viewing instrument in the rectum (the anoscope) making it painful.
CRH Medical Corporation in Vancouver, Canada, has pioneered a new form of hemorrhoid banding called the CRH O’Regan System®, a plastic, disposable device that uses a gentle suction instead of metal tooth forceps making the procedure more comfortable for the patient..
Dr. Khaled Elraie, MD, FACG, of Comprehensive Digestive Health in Belmont, NC, has been performing the procedure in his office for about 7 months now. "It's very quick, completely painless, effective and isn't any more uncomfortable than having a regular rectal exam in the office. No pain after the procedure, and it has been working very well for my patients," said Dr. Elraie. "The procedure is done over three sessions, 2 weeks apart. That way it will treat hemorrhoids all around the inside circumference of the rectum while minimizing side effects."
