Haemorrhoids - a common disease

Haemorrhoids are among the most common rectum diseases. Colloquially, haemorrhoids are node-like enlargements of the rectum vessels. These vessels actually serve the regulation of the bowel function. When pathologically enlarged, they are similar to varicose veins.

They are accompanied by unpleasant symptoms: these may, for example, be haemorrhages and constant itching. Haemorrhoids especially develop at a later age - from approximately the age of 35. The causes for their development are unclear. Haemorrhoids can be successfully treated with the laser method developed by us.

Gentle intervention

An intervention is absolutely necessary should the development of the haemorrhoids be advanced. We are able to perform this intervention in a gentle and almost painless way using the laser unit. Contrary to conventional treatment, usually no haemorrhaging wounds, swellings or purulence occur. The haemorrhoids are “fused” by the heat effect of the laser. The affected vessels can thus be incapacitated and shrunk in this way. Subsequently, the haemorrhoids can be removed.

Benefits of the laser method

  • Gentle intervention without any incisions
  • No impairment of the sphincter muscle
  • Low-pain procedure
  • Normal meals after the intervention
  • You will be quickly mobile again

Treatment process

The intervention is preceded by a thorough pre-examination. The intervention itself may require a hospital admission or may be performed in the outpatient clinic, depending on the extent of haemorrhoids. The haemorrhoids are removed under general anaesthesia such that you usually will not notice anything. The entire intervention is monitored with the ultrasound unit. It is typically completed within one hour. Two hours later you may get up again.
Sometimes benign proliferations, so-called polyps, are detected during the removal of haemorrhoids. These polyps can be removed during the same intervention.

Further bowel diseases treated by us

We also specialise in the treatment of intestinal fistulae and recurrences - viz patients whose earlier operations did not result in any healing. In addition, we also take care of various other bowel diseases: as for example tumours, bowel prolapse, abscess, intestinal bleeding or proliferations. You will benefit from our gentle, low-pain laser method with regard to all these symptoms.

Follow-up treatment

After removal of the haemorrhoids, you will typically stay for five days in our hospital. Camomile hip baths and ointment compresses promote your quick recovery. Switching to a mild diet is not required, you may eat normal meals. After your discharge, the general practitioner can follow-up the healing process.
