Traditionally, hemorrhoids are treated using a procedure known as hemorrhoidectomy. While effective, this treatment requires patients go through a recovery time that can last from two to three weeks before they can return to their usual routine. THD allows most patients to recover within a matter of days, allowing them to quickly return to their everyday life without experiencing the potential adverse effects associated with conventional methods.
In addition to the relative speed in which patients gain relief, THD is a minimally invasive alternative. Instead of removing the hemorrhoid directly, our Houston surgical specialist limits blood flow to the affected areas, reducing inflammation and enhancing patient comfort without the need for extensive procedures. This form of care is also beneficial for patients with multiple internal hemorrhoids or a prolapse. Overall, this procedure simplifies a normally intensive process and reduces the physical stress put on the body.
While not everyone is an ideal candidate for THD, our practice is committed to helping patients understand all of their options for care. Most of our Houston patients can qualify for this treatment, though in the few circumstances where a traditional surgical approach is required, we enhance their comfort and work to provide the highest quality care.
As THD requires no removal of tissue, patients who undergo this form of treatment regularly experience a more comfortable recovery period. Patients receive post-operative instructions from Dr. Fan and his staff, including advice on eating a diet of liquids and foods high in fiber. The results of this procedure are predictable and allow patients to return to regular activities within a few days, and feel at their best within a few months. If hemorrhoids are causing you to feel continued discomfort, don’t wait to seek help. With the minimally invasive option of THD, you can get back to enjoying life quickly and comfortably. From planning to recovery, Dr. Fan and his team guide patients to full health, and are available to answer any questions or concerns.
