Did you know about half the population will experience the discomfort of hemorrhoids by age 50?
The onset of hemorrhoids commonly occurs after the age of 30 and is caused by constipation, pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, heavy lifting, sitting for long periods and diarrhea. Home remedies such as creams, suppositories and warm baths may offer temporary relief from hemorrhoid symptoms.
But for many people, hemorrhoids won’t go away without medical intervention. Instead, they can become worse over time, growing in size and number.
For years, people have experienced recurring flare-ups, and often delayed treatment due to fear of painful procedures. Now, the physicians at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy can help you end your suffering.
CRH O'Regan System™
We now offer the CRH O’Regan System™ that utilizes a non-surgical, patented device that provides treatment that is:
- Minimally uncomfortable
- Easy (no anesthesia, fasting or other prep required)
- Covered by most insurance plans
The hemorrhoid banding system is appropriate for approximately 95% of hemorrhoid patients. Only the most severe cases require surgery, which is often a result of delayed treatment.
With conventional rubber banding systems, pain has been reported in 4-29% of the cases. With the CRH O’Regan System™, less than 0.2% of patients experienced post-procedure pain or bleeding. We are pleased to offer this faster, more accurate and less painful state-of-the-art procedure to our patients.
