Hemorrhoid ablation

Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Therapy

Hemorrhoids are quite common, with nearly half of all adults having experienced the associated itching, rectal pain and bleeding during bowel movements by age 50.

They develop in the anus and lower rectum as inflamed and swollen veins, and are caused by strained bowel movements, pregnancy, childbirth, obesity and other conditions and actions that increase pressure on these veins. Hemorrhoids are either internal (inside the rectum) or external (under the skin around the anus), but a person can have both types at the same time.

Typically, hemorrhoids are diagnosed following a physical and/or rectal exam. The good news is that there are many effective treatment options, starting with over-the-counter preparations. When these medications don’t work, non-surgical interventions are available.

Photocoagulation

NJ gastroenterologist Dr. Gagan D. Beri specializes in such advanced therapies, which include photocoagulation, a non-invasive procedure that uses infrared light to treat grade-1, -2 and -3 hemorrhoids. The heat created by the light promotes the growth of scar tissue, which stops the supply of “life-giving” blood to the hemorrhoid. Photocoagulation, which can be performed in a physician’s office (or at a surgical center if preferred), and treats one hemorrhoid at a time. The treatment is repeated over several months. Patients may feel some discomfort during the procedure and experience a feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen as well as slight bleeding for about one week afterward.

Testimonials

Dawn E

Dr Beri is patient, kind and loving. His staff is equally as knowledgeable. He saved my life as 3 well known Gastros misdiagnosed me. I am very glad he is not under the Allied Digestive Health LLC to which 42 drs in Monmouth County read each others notes and do not thoroughly individualize treatment. Thank god for Dr Beri. So grateful to my co worker for sending me to him.

Ruby Burton

Dr Beri is so sweet and caring and genuinely cares about his patients. He listens to the things you are feeling and does not dismiss any feelings. His front desk girls are always so welcoming when you come in and the medical assistants are sweet and lovely to talk to. They make it a great experience when you are not feeling well.
