Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy

What is Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy ?

Stapled hemorrhoidectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures in the world. It is a safe, effective and relatively painless procedure that can be performed without general anesthesia. This technique involves two large absorbable suture staples placed at the ends of two scopes that are passed through the anus and pressed against both sides of the hemorrhoid. The scope allows for very precise surgical placement and is able to be removed in one piece following surgery.


Stapled hemorrhoidectomy is a gentle surgical technique that uses a metal clip to seal the ends of small blood vessels inside the anus. This ensures that when you have a bowel movement, no free blood can leak out and damage the lining of your large intestine. The procedure takes about 15 minutes to perform under anesthesia and results in almost no pain afterwards.

With the Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy technique, we are able to cut through your hemorrhoids without damaging the surrounding tissue or other structures. This allows us to remove all of the hemorrhoids, while leaving you with a small area of non-inflamed tissue that is not as painful, similar to a curable ear infection. Unlike surgery where everything is numbed before being cut open, only minimal discomfort is present during this procedure.
