Haemorrhoids (Piles) Surgery

Haemorrhoids (Piles) Surgery

Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy (Minimally Invasive Procedure for Haemorrhoids) or MIPH (Minimally Invasive Procedure for PILES)
Haemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal which may be painful but usually not serious. If veins swell inside the anal canal, it forms internal haemorrhoids and if veins swell near the opening of the anus, it forms external haemorrhoids. One generally has both types of haemorrhoids at the same time.

Minimally invasive procedure for haemorrhoids (MIPH)/ Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy allows patients to have the following advantages:

  • Get back to work early
  • Minimal pain
  • No cuts and therefore no Dressings
  • Discharge from Hospital in one day

The symptoms of Haemorrhoids:

  • Bleeding during bowel movements.
  • Streaks of bright red blood on toilet paper after one strains to have a bowel movement
  • Itching
  • Rectal pain

The latest advancement for treatment for haemorrhoids is the stapled haemorrhoidectomy procedure which has almost entirely replaced open surgery. An experienced surgeon uses a stapling device and removes the part of the pile mass with the stapler gun thus addressing two main concerns, bleeding and prolapsed haemorrhoids. The titanium staples not only cut but also seal at the same time; therefore, minimizes bleeding & reduces post-operative pain. As no additional incision is required on the lower part of the anal canal; therefore, the patient does not need any post-operative dressings.
