It is estimated that 40 - 50% of the population of the United States will suffer from hemorrhoids at some time in their lives. Most of these sufferers will not require surgery.
Home treatment and office procedures can manage a majority of hemorrhoid problems. A smaller but significant portion of these patients will benefit from surgery for their hemorrhoids. For many years, a hemorrhoid operation meant two or more weeks of severe pain and inability to go to work. On top of all that, the rate at which the hemorrhoids would return was disappointingly high.
Recent research and development has lead to significant improvements in the surgical treatment of hemorrhoid disease. Post operative pain and recovery is dramatically reduced and recurrence of the hemorrhoids is far less.
The surgeons of Advanced Surgery of Idaho have been among the first in the Treasure Valley to offer this surgical procedure and have extensive experience performing it. This is an outpatient procedure and most patients can go back to work in 3-5 days.
