Hemorrhoid Treatment

Relief Is On The Way

One of the most proven and pain free procedures is the CRH O’Regan System, a hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation procedure, which is a fast, effective, nonsurgical approach to hemorrhoid treatment that’s 99% effective. There's no downtime involved, it's significantly less costly than surgery, and is covered by most insurance plans. Learn how internal hemorrhoids can be removed painlessly, for good, in a matter of seconds, with this system at Cary Gastro.

For external hemorrhoids, Cary Gastro is able to only treat those that are smaller, not requiring surgical intervention. In cases where the external hemorrhoids are too large to treat, we will refer patients to a surgeon for care.

Creams and Home Remedies

Hemorrhoid creams can alleviate discomfort like burning, itching and inflammation, and provide temporary relief during a flare-up.


This surgical procedure removes hemorrhoids, and is typically needed only for the most severe cases. Types of this surgical procedure include:

  • Conventional surgical hemorrhoidectomy
  • Stapled hemorrhoidectomy (PPH)
  • Doppler-guided Ligation of Hemorrhoidal Arteries (THD)
  • Infrared Coagulation (IRC)

This procedure uses hot infrared light to treat small or mid-sized hemorrhoids. As the treatment tends to be more superficial, multiple procedures are often required. The wait period between treatments is usually 90 days.

Ultroid Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment

This is a procedure where a probe is introduced into the anus through an anoscope which uses dc electrical current (“direct current”) to cause the hemorrhoid to scar and shrink.

Sclerotherapy: Chemical Injection Treatment

This treatment involves injecting a chemical through an anoscope into the hemorrhoid tissue, causing it to scar and shrink. Sclerotherapy is rarely practiced today because it has a high potential for complications compared to more safe and effective procedures, like rubber band ligation
