Although no one likes to talk about them, hemorrhoids are an everyday reality affecting over half of the senior population. Unfortunately, the physical and social pain traditionally associated with treating hemorrhoids prevents many patients from seeking treatment. Now, however, there is a fast and non-surgical procedure that promises to change everything and give you back your golden years.
Unfortunately, hemorrhoids become increasingly common after age 45 due to normal weakening of vein walls. That prevalence only goes up as we age and become more prone to bowel problems, which puts the senior population at particular risk. In fact, it is estimated that over half of all seniors have or will experience symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, including:
Our skilled and compassionate doctor can provide immediate hemorrhoid relief in Pinellas Park and Tampa, thanks to an innovative and non-surgical procedure known as Infrared Coagulation or IRC. While traditional remedies for hemorrhoids often require the use of anesthesia, sedation, and surgery, IRC relies on the technology of electrolysis alone. Electrolysis effectively shrinks and eliminates hemorrhoids by targeting veins with hydrogen. This is advantageous over traditional methods for several reasons, including:
Additionally, the entire IRC procedure takes around half an hour to complete and is effective at treating grade 1, 2, and 3 hemorrhoids. Patients can return home right away and resume their normal routines much faster in comparison to conventional treatment.
