Hemorrhoidectomybanding

Operative hemorrhoidectomy and rubber band ligation are the two most-common interventions for symptomatic hemorrhoids today. Both are highly effective when utilized properly. Hemorrhoidectomy refers to the operative excision of the hemorrhoids, usually in the outpatient surgical suite, whereas rubber band ligation is performed in the office setting. Hemorrhoids are generally symptomatic with either bleeding (typically bright red, painless, and commonly dripping into the toilet bowl) or protrusion (occasionally associated with discomfort, itching, or irritation and burning). Pain is usually not a symptom of hemorrhoids unless thrombosis or strangulation has occurred.
