Hemorrhoidectomy

HEMORRHOIDECTOMY (Piles) Surgery DUBAI

Piles, commonly known as hemorrhoids, are lumps or masses which are formed due to presence of swollen blood vessels in and around anus and rectum. When the condition reaches at severe stage, hemorrhoids protrude from the anus. This situation is known as prolapsed hemorrhoid and needs to be removed surgically. Hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure used for treating or removing hemorrhoids. The procedure of stapled hemorrhoidectomy is performed for treating prolapsed hemorrhoids i.e. third and fourth-degree hemorrhoids. Dubai based Mc Body Clinic is known worldwide for offering the treatment of hemorrhoids to both domestic as well as international clients.

Procedure of Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy for Prolapsed Hemorrhoids

The procedure of stapled hemorrhoidectomy is performed when other minimal invasive treatments fail to show the desired results. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, a circular stapling device is used by surgeons to cut off hemorrhoid tissue and lift back the hemorrhoid within the rectum. This results in ceasing blood supply to the hemorrhoid, thereby resulting in its shrinkage and dissolution.
