Treatment of Hemorrhoids


IRC, The Treatment Of Hemorrhoids:

     Bleeding internal hemorrhoids are an embarrassing and an annoying problem that affects a large number of people. Our doctors have the capabilities and equipment to reduce or eliminate this problem, with a virtually painless, safe, low-risk procedure called Infrared Coagulation (IRC).

     In only a few seconds, we can apply concentrated heat to the blood vessels which make up the hemorrhoid, and cause them to shrink. The procedure is repeated several times done over three months, with one of the three hemorrhoid areas being treated every couple of weeks. Sometimes, additional treatments are necessary. Your doctor can advise you better during your examination.

     IRC is usually covered by health plans, but you may want to check with your particular health insurance plan.
