San Jose Hemorrhoid Banding
Hemorrhoid Screening & Testing in San Jose
What Are the Symptoms of Hemorrhoids?
Contact the professionals at San Jose Gastroenterology if you are experiencing the following symptoms:
- Itching or pain around your anus
- Noticeable bleeding during bowel movements
- Discolored bumps in or around the edge of your anus
- Swelling around your anus
Because hemorrhoid symptoms often share traits with other, more severe, conditions such as colon polyps, colitis, or Crohn’s disease, it is important to turn to a trusted professional for testing before trying to resolve the issue on your own. We are able to test for both internal and external hemorrhoids by asking about your medical history, performing a physical examination, and using innovative procedures such as sigmoidoscopy.
Give our GI specialists a call today by dialing (408) 347-9001 and learn more about hemorrhoid treatment in San Jose.
Why Choose Hemorrhoid Banding?
Our innovative hemorrhoid banding procedure is a quick and relatively painless way to treat your hemorrhoids right away. The process begins with a consultation to determine whether banding or infrared coagulation is the best choice for your specific need. Once it is decided that banding would be an effective option, we begin the procedure.
A small suction device is used to draw the affected tissue away from the body. Next, a small rubber band will be securely fastened to the hemorrhoid, restricting blood flow to the inflamed area. Once the band is in place, the suction will stop, and the healing can begin—with many patients reporting hemorrhoid shrinkage in as little as a few days.
