THD/ELITE Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty
Before performing the ELITE Laser procedure, the doctor analyzes the patient’s history of hemorrhoids to determine the appropriate treatment. An anorectal examination and anoscopy are then performed to assess bleeding, engorgement, and prolapse. THD is usually used for active hemorrhoids that are large and are likely to prolapse. The patient is given anesthesia and enemas before the surgery. THD is performed using suture to grasp tissue and move it deeper inside the anus toward the head.
THD procedure has minimal after-effects, but complications may arise if sutures are either too tight, leading to tissue ischemia, or too loose, resulting in early rupture of the suture and the collapse of the hemorrhoidal artery. Circumferential obliteration of the anal tissue may also increase the risk of thrombosis, while urinary retention and Tenesmus are other complications that can arise post-surgery. Medications are usually prescribed to alleviate the pain.
It is important to understand that even though you may invest in an advanced procedure, surgery is not a perfect science. All surgical procedures come with inherent risks and potential complications, regardless of the technology or techniques used. Despite the advancements in medical technology, there is always a possibility that a surgical procedure may not meet your expectations or lead to the desired outcomes. It is crucial to have realistic expectations and weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks of any surgical procedure. It is crucial also to discuss these potential risks with your surgeon so that you can make an informed decision.
