While conservative treatments for hemorrhoids help most people, hemorrhoid surgery is often necessary to put an end to the painful and disturbing problem.
What types of surgery do you have to deal with hemorrhoids? How is surgery performed? What are the implications and prospects for success? Here is all the information.
Not all hemorrhoids require surgery
Access to hemorrhoids is usually conservative, and includes nutritional modification and treatment of local creams. There are also various surgical procedures, such as tying hemorrhoids with rubber bands or burning hemorrhoids.
But when all this fails, and the patient still feels limited in quality of life, there may be room for surgical surgical intervention, in accordance with the decision of the treating proctologist.
Types of hemorrhoids surgery
There are three types of hemorrhoid surgery today. The first is traditional surgery for hemorrhoidectomy, the second is a more innovative procedure called Stefler, and the third, also innovative, allows hemorrhoids to be connected to Doppler. The type of surgery will be chosen after diagnosis by a proctologist.
Hemorrhoidectomy: Removal of the tissue
The incision may be performed by a surgical knife, an electric burner, or a laser burner. The operation is performed under full anesthesia at the hospital.
Before surgery, an enema is needed, and the procedure takes a short time so that it can be released within a day or two. The recovery process takes several weeks and the success rate of surgery is considered high and especially good. Surgery only happens with severe hemorrhoids, and with there is no other choice.
In this innovative analysis, a type of “stifler” or “dog” is used to restore the hole to its place within the anal canal. As a result, the hemorrhage shrinks.
The operation is performed under full anesthesia in the hospital, and before the procedure, the enema is needed. Hospitalization after Stefler surgery is short, and usually after 24-48 hours which is to be released.
The recovery period is short, and usually after a few days it is possible to return to normal. The success rates recorded as a result of the surgery are high.
One of the most innovative alternatives to hemorrhoid surgery is the Doppler binding method, which is performed using an innovative device developed specifically to connect the arteries of the hemorrhoids and thus bring them to an end.
The operation is performed under full anesthesia at the hospital or at the private clinics. Doppler-type surgery does not require hospitalization, and after a day of surgery, it is possible to return to normal. To date, the success rate among patients undergoing this procedure is high.
Despite the differences between surgical procedures and the duration of recovery, there are a number of things that are very important to follow after surgery.
Rest – In the first few days after surgery it is important to maintain rest and avoid strenuous or athletic activity.
Cleaning the anus – Good hygiene is a recommended recipe for avoiding postoperative complications. Absorption of the excretions by using clean pads, local showers and frequent replacement of underwear are very important.
Proper nutrition – Be sure to eat a light diet rich in fiber such as vegetables, fresh fruits and dried fruits, including drinking at least 10-15 cups of water per day.
