Hemorrhoid Banding

Overview of Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid banding is currently the most commonly performed treatment for hemorrhoids in Houston. The procedure has gained great popularity because of its effectiveness, safety, simplicity and durability. Hemorrhoid banding is a painless procedure that requires no sedation.


How is hemorrhoid banding performed?

Hemorrhoid banding is an office-based procedure that requires no special preparation. A hemorrhoid specialist places a rubber band at the base of hemorrhoid tissue in less than a minute allowing patients to resume normal activity immediately thereafter.

How does hemorrhoid banding work?

All non-surgical hemorrhoid procedures aim at reducing hemorrhoid tissue blood supply and decreasing prolapse by creating scar tissue formation. By placing a rubber band at the base of hemorrhoid tissue, blood supply is stopped. Banded hemorrhoid tissue dies off and a scar is left behind that prevents hemorrhoid tissue prolapse.

Is hemorrhoid banding a good option for me?

Many factors are taken into consideration when deciding whether or not you are a good candidate for hemorrhoid banding. After thorough assessment, physical examination, anoscopy and possible colonoscopy a decision is made as to the best solution to eliminate hemorrhoid related symptoms. Around 90% of our patients qualify for hemorrhoid banding.
