What is Piles?

Swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause bleeding and discomfort are called Piles or Haemorrhoids. It is a common disorder affecting men or women of any age group caused by the constant pressure on blood vessels present in the anal area. Because of this constant pressure, the capillaries become weak and gives irritable feeling while passing the bowel.

Piles are also known as Bavasir in Hindi or Mulvyadh in Marathi.

Why Eravio for Piles Treatment?

Treating Piles

There are two ways of treating piles: Operative and Non-operative. Usually, people attempt to treat the piles through the non-operative method. This includes:

  • Gradually increasing the fibre content in the diet,
  • Increasing the water intake,
  • Immediately emptying bowel as per the body signal
  • Maintaining appropriate body weight
  • Regularly exercising to regulate circulation

However, sometimes the matter cannot be solved even after bringing about a major change in the lifestyle. At such a point, the doctors recommend undergoing a surgery for the same.

At Eravio, we understand that the thought of a surgery may seem intimidating. However, we employ the minimally to non-invasive techniques to treat piles. The most common treatments are laser treatment and stapler treatment.


Laser Haemorrhoidoplasty for Treating Piles

At Eravio Hospital, we have the best doctors for proctology who are adept at using the latest technology with expertise.

Under Local Anaesthesia (LA)/General Anaesthesia (GA), the laser device delivers laser energy in a radial manner directly to the haemorrhoidal nodes. This results in obliteration of the nodes while preserving the mucosa and sphincter structure to an extremely high precision.

The laser energy seals off the blood vessels which nourish abnormal growth. It induces destruction of the venous epithelium and simultaneous obliteration of the haemorrhoidal pile by a shrinkage effect.

When compared to the conventional surgery, the laser energy encourages fibrotic reconstruction to generate new connective tissue. This ensures that mucosa adheres to the underlying tissue and prevents any relapse. This procedure takes only a few minutes.


Why Laser Haemorrhoidoplasty is the best option?

  • Low recurrence rate
  • Quick treatment
  • Minimally invasive
  • Minimal bleeding and pain
  • Less traumatic
  • Instant relief from symptoms
  • Outpatient procedure
