Effective hemorrhoid treatment

Did you know it is estimated that half of all Americans will develop hemorrhoids during their lifetime? Unfortunately, many of these people feel embarrassed to visit the doctor, speak about their condition and get treatment. By the time they finally get to the doctor, the problem has worsened.

At Utah Gastroenterology, we provide effective treatment options for hemorrhoids. While hemorrhoidectomy is one of the most common solutions, we usually discourage patients from undergoing this procedure due to its inherent pain and longer downtime.

As an alternative, we perform hemorrhoid banding. It is a quick and painless technique to get rid of hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoid banding:

  • Is more accurate
  • Is more effective for the treatment of both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids
  • Involves less bleeding and shorter recovery time
  • Offers long-term results compared to other treatment methods
  • Is an in-office prcedure, with little discomfort, and most patients return to work the same day


What’s more, it is as effective as hemorrhoidectomy, eliminating 95 percent of all hemorrhoids. It’s much safer and easier on patients.
