Painless Hemorrhoid Treatment

There are several ways to treat hemorrhoids, from over-the-counter creams to hemorrhoidectomy surgeries. The most effective non-surgical method for treating hemorrhoids is a process called “rubber band ligation” or “banding” using the CRH O’Regan System.

While over-the-counter treatments (such as Preparation H) provide temporary relief from some of the symptoms caused by hemorrhoids, the CRH O’Regan System provides definitive relief without the complications of surgery.

The CRH O’Regan System is simple, painless, fast, effective, and appropriate for 95% of hemorrhoid patients.


The procedure takes about 1 minute to perform and is 95% effective.


Most patients can resume normal activities the same day.


The procedure is covered by Medicare and most insurance plans.


The procedure is painless and typically no pain medication is required after the procedure.

    What are hemorrhoids?

    Hemorrhoids are cushions of tissue containing swollen blood vessels in the lower rectum or around the anus. Hemorrhoids can cause discomfort, itching, bleeding, and sometimes severe pain.

    What are the causes of hemorrhoids?

    Hemorrhoids are caused by too much pressure in the veins of the rectum, which can be the result of a variety of factors. Hemorrhoids can be linked to diet, constipation, diarrhea, obesity, pregnancy and childbirth, and even sitting for extended periods of time.

    How do I know if what I have is a hemorrhoid, or something else?

    The most common hemorrhoid symptoms are itching, bleeding, pain, swelling and prolapse (hemorrhoid tissue protruding from the anus). Some patients with more severe hemorrhoids may also experience fecal leakage.

    How do I prevent hemorrhoids?

    Hemorrhoids can’t always be prevented, but you can reduce your chances by avoiding some of the main hemorrhoid causes, like constipation. Whether you’ve had hemorrhoid treatment before or not, it’s a good idea to:

    Do hemorrhoids always require surgery?

    Over 95% of hemorrhoids can be treated using the CRH O’Regan System®, meaning less than 5% of hemorrhoids require surgery. The sooner you seek treatment for a hemorrhoid, the lower your chances of needing surgery will be.

    How many treatments are necessary?

    Everyone has three hemorrhoid columns and most often, when one is affected, all three are affected. Generally speaking, a patient will require three treatments, with one band placed during each visit.

    Does banding hurt?

    No. With the procedure we use (the CRH O’Regan System®), band placement is painless and over 99% of patients experience no significant post-procedural pain.

    Will I have to miss work or other activities?

    You can typically return to work and resume your normal activities immediately following the procedure (but refrain from vigorous activity until the following day).

    Will my insurance cover banding?

    Most major insurance plans cover hemorrhoid banding (rubber band ligation). Call our office for for cost details, or refer to your specific insurance policy for copay information.

    Can’t I just use an over-the-counter treatment, like Preparation H Cream?

    You can use an over-the-counter treatment to help relieve hemorrhoid symptoms such as itching and swelling. However, these remedies don’t treat the cause of the hemorrhoid, and it is more likely that your symptoms will resurface eventually. For a long-term solution, a treatment like banding is likely your best option.

    Regain Your Freedom

    Despite the fact that over half of all adults in the U.S. will get hemorrhoids before the age of 50, many people are still unable to recognize when they have them, or are uncomfortable seeking treatment. But you shouldn’t be. When treated early by a trained physician, hemorrhoids can be removed painlessly, for good, in a matter of seconds.
