  • Short Recovery: Hemorrhoid embolization is minimally invasive and requires only a small incision, and most patients return to full activities within a few days
  • No General Anesthesia: Embolization is performed under light anesthesia, or “twilight” sleep
  • Outpatient Visit: There is no incision in the rectum, and you can go home the same day as your treatment
  • Maintained Anatomical Integrity: Embolization leaves your tissue in place, doesn’t involve the creation of rectal wounds, and preserves your continence


What is Hemorrhoid Embolization?

Hemorrhoid embolization, also known as hemorrhoidal artery embolization (HAE), is a cutting-edge procedure designed to effectively treat hemorrhoids without the need for surgery. During the procedure, a skilled interventional radiologist inserts tiny particles into the blood vessels that supply the hemorrhoids. This process blocks the blood flow, causing the hemorrhoids to shrink and gradually resolve over time.

The Benefits of Hemorrhoid Embolization

Minimally Invasive: Unlike traditional surgery, hemorrhoid embolization is minimally invasive. It requires only a small incision, reducing the risk of complications and promoting a faster recovery.

Lasting Relief: Hemorrhoid embolization addresses the root cause of hemorrhoids by reducing blood flow to the affected area. This results in long-lasting relief from the pain, itching, and discomfort associated with hemorrhoids.

Quick Recovery: Recovery time after hemorrhoid embolization is usually shorter compared to surgical methods. Most individuals can resume their normal activities within a few days.

Outpatient Procedure: Hemorrhoid embolization is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can return home the same day.

No Need for General Anesthesia: The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or mild sedation, reducing the risks associated with general anesthesia.

Effective for Various Types of Hemorrhoids: Whether you're dealing with internal, external, or prolapsed hemorrhoids, hemorrhoid embolization can provide relief.

Is Hemorrhoid Embolization Right for You?

Hemorrhoid embolization is an excellent option for individuals dealing with recurrent or severe hemorrhoids that have not responded well to conservative treatments like dietary changes, medication, or other non-surgical procedures. It's particularly effective for those who wish to avoid surgery or are considered high-risk candidates for surgical procedures. Patients with internal hemorrhoids of grades 1, 2, or 3 typically see the best results.
