Hemorrhoid Treatments Comparison
The CRH O’Regan System is appropriate for more than 95% of hemorrhoid patients with only the most severe cases requiring surgery (hemorrhoidectomy).
Topical ointments and creams such as Preparation H are often a chosen method of treatment for hemorrhoid sufferers. Though Preparation H and similar over the counter remedies may temporarily relieve some of the minor symptoms of hemorrhoids, they do nothing about the underlying problem. It is for this reason that patients will typically experience recurrent symptoms and flare-ups unless there is something done to address the hemorrhoids themselves. The CRH O’Regan System treats the hemorrhoids, not the symptoms — making products like Preparation H unnecessary.
Less than 0.2% of patients treated with our advanced technique experienced significant post-procedure pain (compared to the 4 – 29% noted as the chief complaint after other rubber banding techniques). Our method is also faster, more accurate and has virtually no downtime.
Over the years, a number of new treatments have been devised for hemorrhoids, but none have outperformed the CRH O’Regan System. Among them are infrared photocoagulation, or the use of lasers to burn the hemorrhoid tissue, and stapled hemorrhoidectomy, a surgical variation that uses a circular stapler device that interrupts the circulation of the hemorrhoid.
