Hemorrhoid surgery - ligature

Hemorrhoid surgery with ligature is one of the most common methods of treating internal hemorrhoids of the first to third degree. The placement of rubber ligatures is usually performed on an outpatient basis, and the patient can return home the same day.

During the surgery, the doctor will use a special rubber band (ligature) to form a knot around the base of the hemorrhoid, which reduces blood flow to the hemorrhoid and causes it to dry up and fall off after a few days.

After the surgery, the patient may experience some mild discomfort or pain, but this can usually be controlled with pain medications. It is also important to avoid straining during bowel movements and follow your doctor's recommendations regarding diet and activity.

This method is usually effective in treating small to medium sized hemorrhoids, but is not always effective for larger hemorrhoids or those that are very inflamed or bleeding. Therefore, before deciding on the procedure, an examination by a specialist is always necessary, who will decide which treatment method is best for the patient.
