Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013
Hemorrhoid Treatment Group released an article discussing the newest hemorrhoid treatment options available in traditional medicine. This article came on the heels of the December 2013 rerelease of the July 2004 Harvard Health Publications’ article, “Hemorrhoids and What To Do About Them.” The article, as its title suggests, defines hemorrhoids, identifies the most common causes, and offers solutions for those afflicted by the ailment. While these are all important aspects of hemorrhoid treatment awareness, the article fails to acknowledge the latest in hemorrhoid treatment options. Hemorrhoid Treatment Group bridged this gap by discussing the latest in hemorrhoid treatment.
Harvard Health Publications’ article began with a brief overview of the most common causes of hemorrhoids, including advanced age and pregnancy. This was followed by an identification of hemorrhoids, likening them to varicose veins, though their location is different. Hemorrhoids are located below the rectum, though some hemorrhoids are internal and others external. Hemorrhoids may be identified by a simple physical exam, and are frequently marked by blood in one’s feces or around the rectum. Most hemorrhoid remedies are able to be performed at home, and include simple lifestyle changes. For more advanced stages of hemorrhoids, however, surgery is required.
Many remedies for hemorrhoids are already in place. However, as medicine continues to improve, treatment methods are constantly being developed, including surgical procedures. Hemorrhoid Treatment Group identified two of the newest treatment options, including the HET Bipolar System and the PPH procedure. The first, the HET Bipolar System, is a new method of healing internal hemorrhoids. The process involves local anesthesia and an instrument designed to seal off inflamed hemorrhoids, forcing the swollen veins to shrink to their original size and relieving pain. The procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure, and boasts minimal recovery pain. The second new treatment option is the PPH procedure, an outpatient procedure involving sedation and a small surgical instrument employing vibration to encourage hemorrhoids to shrink and disappear, rather than using an incision, resulting in a virtually nonexistent recovery time and little to no associated pain. As with any procedure, check with a doctor for the best available option.

Hemorrhoids, an ailment afflicting as much as 50% of the population over the age of 50, is a regular concern found in hospitals. Hemorrhoids range in severity, some requiring only a change in diet and others requiring surgery. Surgical options are continually being developed with the end goal of greater comfort and a shorter recovery time. Two new treatments options have been developed, both boasting shorter recovery periods and decreased pain. Both are outpatient procedures, and allow patients to return home, or even to work, the same day. Both hemorrhoid treatment options may be used for more severe hemorrhoids, and may prevent scarring and hemorrhoid reoccurrence.
