How it Works
The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. An anoscope, combined with a Doppler, is used to find the end branches of hemorrhoidal arteries. Once these are located, sutures are used to tie off blood flow. This is also known as a suture ligation.
Blood is not able to flow into the hemorrhoid, and the vein is able to remain intact to allow blood to flow out, reducing its size. This procedure does not involve any removal of tissue, unlike a hemorrhoidectomy. Studies show that THD, when performed accurately, is a safe procedure and one of the most effective treatments for hemorrhoids.
