What Is the O’Regan System?

The CRH O’Regan System is an innovative hemorrhoid banding system that uses gentle manual suction to apply a rubber band to the base of the hemorrhoid.

Over the next few days, this rubber band will restrict blood flow, causing the hemorrhoid to shrink, dry up and fall off. The CRH O’Regan System is a quick, effective and pain-free option for those looking to treat internal hemorrhoids.

The procedure takes approximately one minute and provides long-lasting results. The success rate with the CRH O’Regan system is 99% with only 5% of patients experiencing symptoms again after 2 years.  If you have symptomatic, hemorrhoids, The CRH O’Regan system can help you find relief.

Unlike traditional banding techniques or hemorrhoid surgery, the CRH O’Regan system does not require extensive preparation or prolonged recovery times. When placing the band, the physician will ensure it does not capture any tissue that contains pain sensing nerves, reducing the likelihood of painful side effects or complications and ensuring a virtually painless procedure.

Another benefit of hemorrhoid banding is most patients do not even notice when the hemorrhoid falls off. In most cases, the hemorrhoid will easily fall off after a few days, typically during a regular bowel movement. Many patients only notice the rubber band in the toilet after a bowel movement. Following a hemorrhoid banding session, you will want to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity for the day, but can return to work right away.

Hemorrhoid Banding for Internal Hemorrhoids

The CRH O’Regan System is designed to treat internal hemorrhoids, which are located in the anal lining. While hemorrhoid banding is not intended for external hemorrhoids, or hemorrhoids that develop outside the rectum, many patients experience improvement of their external hemorrhoid symptoms after their internal hemorrhoids are treated with hemorrhoid banding.

In many cases, patients who suffer from external hemorrhoids also have internal hemorrhoids. Treating internal hemorrhoids can benefit and improve the severity of external hemorrhoids and help relieve numerous symptoms, such as inflammation and swelling. After addressing internal hemorrhoid symptoms, external hemorrhoid symptoms often dissipate and improve.
