Piles, also known as Hemorrhoids are the swollen veins located around the anus in the lower rectum.

Piles in its early stages can be treated by medications. The patient is also advised to increase the liquid intake and fibers in the diet. This prevents constipation which can ease piles and even help recover.

Treatment Options:

In the chronic cases where the piles get irritated or infected, piles surgery may be required. There are different surgical options to treat piles. The aim of piles surgery is to restrict the blood supply or remove hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids may occur as internal or external in nature. Internal hemorrhoids form in the anus or rectum whereas external hemorrhoids form outside the anus. Hemorrhoids are also referred to as piles. The different grades of internal hemorrhoids include:

  • Grade I

    Haemorrhoids bleed but do not prolapse
  • Grade II

    Haemorrhoids prolapse outside the anal canal but resolve on their own
  • Grade III

    Haemorrhoids protrude outside the anal canal and are usually reduced manually
  • Grade IV

    Haemorrhoids prolapse that cannot be reduced

Types of Hemorrhoidectomy

Piles (Haemorrhoids) Surgery in Mumbai - Dr Pradeep Shriyan
  • Closed Hemorrhoidectomy

    It involves removing hemorrhoidal bundles with a sharp instrument such as a scalpel, scissors, electrocautery, or even a laser. This is then followed by complete wound closure with absorbable suture. Despite having the most postoperative discomfort and pain, this technique has the best long-term results with the lowest recurrence rates.

  • Open Hemorrhoidectomy

    Hemorrhoidal tissue is removed in the same way as in a closed procedure, but the incision is left open in an open hemorrhoidectomy. When the amount of disease or location makes wound closure difficult or the risk of postoperative infection is high, surgeons may choose open hemorrhoidectomy.

  • Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy

    Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy is typically performed on patients with grade III and IV hemorrhoids on whom previous minimally invasive treatments have not worked (injection by sclerotherapy, coagulation using laser). A circular stapling device is used during stapled Hemorrhoidopexy to excise a circumferential ring of excess hemorrhoid tissue, thereby lifting hemorrhoids back to their normal position within the anal canal. Stapling also disrupts the blood supply to hemorrhoids. As per studies, stapled Hemorrhoidopexy causes less postoperative pain and requires a shorter recovery time than conventional surgery, but it does have a higher recurrence rate

  • Rubber Band Ligation

    A rubber band is wrapped around the base of the hemorrhoid inside the rectum. The band stops blood flow, and the hemorrhoid dies within a few days.
