More than half of the population will experience hemorrhoids at some point in their lives.  A minimally-invasive banding procedure can provide effective relief.

A hemorrhoid is a collection of swollen tissue and blood vessels in the lower rectum or anus, which commonly occurs in patients after age 30.  Home remedies can offer temporary relief from symptoms but for many people, hemorrhoids don’t go away.  Instead, they can get progressively worse over time.

CRH O’Regan Banding Ligation is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed in a matter of minutes and it is 99.1% effective.  The procedure is painless and requires no sedation and no bowel prep.  It also dramatically reduces complications compared to traditional banding.  Most CRH O’Regan System patients have no post-procedure pain.

A minimum of three sessions, scheduled two weeks apart, are needed to properly treat the hemorrhoids with the CRH O’Regan System.
