Non Surgical treatment of piles – Banding
Piles problems can affect both men and women. The incidence of hemorrhoids increases after age 30, and by age 50, about half of the population will have experienced the condition.
How does piles treatment by banding work?
A tiny rubber band is placed around the base of the hemorrhoid/piles. This cuts off blood supply to the hemorrhoid/piles, causing the banded tissue (along with the band), to shrink and fall off, typically within one to five days.
You probably won’t even notice when this happens or be able to spot the rubber band in the toilet.
Does piles treatment with banding hurt?
No. Thanks to our improved instruments and technique, band placement is painless.
You may experience a feeling of fullness or dull ache in the rectum for the first 24 hours, but this can generally be relieved by over-the-counter pain medication.
Multiple studies of our piles treatment with banding technique show that 99.1% of patients experience no significant post-procedural pain.
How many bands for piles treatment necessary?
There are three sites where piles/hemorrhoids form frequently, and it is typical for all three sites to require treatment. We generally only band one hemorrhoid site at a time in separate visits, as multiple bandings have been found to increase complications.
Also, some extremely large hemorrhoids may require additional banding sessions. Thus, multiple bands may be used in severe cases, but one to three is standard.
How common is piles treatment with banding?
Rubber band ligation is the most frequently used non-surgical treatment for hemorrhoids in the world. However, not all banding procedures are the same.
Unlike traditional banding techniques that use a metal-toothed clamp to grasp the tissue, we use a gentle suction device, reducing the risk of pain and bleeding.
