Laser Hemorrhoids Treatment

During the infrared coagulation procedure, Dr. Khodadadian uses a handheld device that creates an intense beam of infrared light. A small probe makes contact with the skin above the hemorrhoid, exposing the tissue to a quick pulse of infrared light. The heat from the infrared light burns the tightly targeted area, coagulating the vein above the hemorrhoid. The resulting scar tissue cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and die. A scar forms on the wall of your anal canal where the hemorrhoid was located. As an added benefit, the scar tissue acts to hold nearby veins in place so they don’t bulge into the anal canal and become hemorrhoids. Each IRC treatment takes approximately 5 minutes. You may need as many as three separate treatment sessions to cover all the areas where hemorrhoids appear, but this depends on your particular case and where your hemorrhoids occur.
