Hemorrhoids After Pregnancy
Following childbirth, after the swelling and inflammation in the perineum resolves, women are often left with external hemorrhoids and residual anal skin tags. These cause issues with hygiene as well as swelling, itching, bleeding, and pain. The symptoms can be temporarily controlled with medicines, but long-term relief and resolution requires definitive treatment from an experienced Proctologist.
Our expert doctors safely remove these lesions, as needed, in the comfort of our office. Depending on the size, number & precise location of the anal tags and hemorrhoids, we offer various options for definitive treatment. These include “painless” procedures such as rubber band ligation and Infrared light “LASER” hemorrhoidectomy. We also offer excision of the hemorrhoids and skin tags when appropriate.
In the long term, these treatments are more cost effective and provide better results than medical management. Furthermore, the decreased suffering from recurrent lifelong hemorrhoidal flareups significantly outweighs any short-term discomfort one may feel from the procedure itself.
