What is Hemorrhoids Surgery? 

Hemorrhoids removal commonly known as hemorrhoidectomy is surgical procedures for tissue located in the lower part of the rectum or around the anus. Swollen hemorrhoids are also called piles.

Main causes of hemorrhoids include: 

  1. Straining during bowel
  2. Severe constipation
  3. Pregnancy
  4. Chronic diarrhoea
  5. Obesity
  6. Low-fibre diet

Hemorrhoids surgery signs include:

  • Painless bleeding during bowel
  • Itching or irritation around the anal region
  • A lump near your anus, 
  • Bright red rectal bleeding 
  • Pain and swelling around the anus

Hemorrhoids surgery risk factor includes:-

  • Risks of anaesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Temporary dizziness
  • Anal fistula or fissure.
  • Constipation.
  • Swelling around the rectal area
  • Discharge of fluid from the rectum.
  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

 

To identify the diagnosis doctor advised to go for complete evolution – usually colonoscopy, Visual inspection, (CT) scan, magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging. Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of Hemorrhoids surgery.

There are many types of Hemorrhoids surgery the surgeon chooses depends upon the patient’s condition:

  1. Hemorrhoid removal
  2. Hemorrhoid stapling
  3. Coagulation (infrared, laser or bipolar). 

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Hemorrhoids surgery takes 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the procedures by giving general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision:

  1. Hemorrhoid Removal: A surgeon removes excessive tissue that causes bleeding.
  2. Hemorrhoid Stapling: Stapling also called stapled hemorrhoidectomy to treat prolapsed hemorrhoids. A surgical staple fixes inside your rectum and reduces the supply of blood to the hemorrhoids, its help to gradually shrink.
  3. Coagulation: In this procedures, a laser or infrared light or heat are used. This procedure causes less pain and has a shorter recovery period than surgical hemorrhoidectomy.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The general surgeon flaps the skin after the surgery with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips that close the skin incisions.

 

  • The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications and managing.
  • Stitches or staples will be removed after the wound heals after surgery. 
  • The recovery period may be around 2- 3 weeks.
  • Advise to eat high-fibre diet and drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water per day
  • Advise using a stool softener and warm salt water several times a day.

 

 

The success rate depends on patient condition and surgeon experience.  Its success rate is between more than 90% and a recurrence rate of 10% after two years, with 7% requiring additional surgical treatment.

  • Are you a board-certified general surgeon?
  • How many years’ experience of you has in this field?
  • How many surgeries are you doing every day?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform these types of surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and Why?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of surgery?
  • How should I prepare for this surgery?
  • How long I have to stay in the hospital and outside the hospital?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
