What is Infrared Coagulation Treatment?
Most people are hesitant to talk about hemorrhoids or admit when they are suffering from hemorrhoid pain, and yet it is estimated that approximately 75% of people will develop this common condition at some point in their lives. Hemorrhoids are nothing to be ashamed of, but they do require treatment in many cases.
Depending on the severity and type of hemorrhoids being dealt with, symptoms may be a minor annoyance or a constant source of debilitating pain, itchiness, and general discomfort. Thankfully, you now have the option to choose a non-invasive Pinellas Park and Tampa hemorrhoid treatment over traditional hemorrhoid surgery. Infrared Coagulation Treatment or IRC is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option that can be completed quickly in a relaxed and clean office setting by compassionate professionals who have your comfort and welfare in mind.
Infrared Coagulation Treatment is an effective, non-invasive hemorrhoid treatment that utilizes electrolysis to effectively shrink the veins in hemorrhoids rather than surgically removing them. The process relies on a natural chemical reaction that breaks down water molecules and combines the components with sodium from your blood to create sodium hydroxide. The sodium hydroxide is what targets the veins in the hemorrhoids and causes them to shrink.
The entire procedure is completed without any sedation, anesthetics, surgical incisions, or injections. Patients do not need make any special preparations prior to their treatment, which makes it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles. Additional benefits of this increasingly popular treatment option include:
• Safe and effective alternative to traditional surgery
• Rapid treatments that can be completed within few minutes
• More effective than surgical treatments for hemorrhoids
• No in-hospital or in-practice recovery time
• Procedure is covered by most insurance plans
IRC treatments are well-tolerated by most patients, and recovery is so mild and minimally-painful that patients can return to their homes immediately following the procedure.
