At San Jose Gastroenterology, we understand how uncomfortable hemorrhoids can be, which is why we provide expert testing and treatment solutions to provide relief and healing as soon as possible.

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.

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.

After the Procedure

How long is the recovery period after hemorrhoid banding?

  • Recovery after hemorrhoid banding is usually relatively quick. Most individuals can resume normal activities within a day or two. Some mild discomfort or bleeding may occur for a short time, but it typically subsides within a week.

Can I resume normal activities after the hemorrhoid banding procedure?

  • Yes, you can generally resume normal activities after the hemorrhoid banding procedure. Most individuals can return to their regular routines within a day or two, with some precautions.
