Hemorrhoid Treatment using the CRH O’Regan System is a less-invasive procedure that is virtually painless and highly effective. The procedure is so quick that it only takes less than a minute to perform. You don’t have to undergo any preparation, fasting and sedation and you can even get back to your routine on the same day. Through a process called hemorrhoid ligation or hemorrhoid banding, the CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment offers a proven and permanent solution to patients suffering from hemorrhoids and anal fissures.

How does the CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment work?


During the treatment, your doctor will place a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid where there are no pain-causing nerve endings. Whereas the traditional banding uses a metal-toothed clamp to grasp the tissue that often causes bleeding and pain, the CRH O’Regan System uses a gentle suction device to cut off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. This technique lessens the risk of pain and bleeding and causes the hemorrhoid to reduce in size and fall off within a couple of days. You may not even feel it when it does. Once the hemorrhoid is gone, the wound usually heals in a week or two.

What to expect before, during and after CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment?


Other than scheduling an appointment with your doctor, there are no special preparations for CRH O’Regan. During your appointment, the doctor will perform a visual examination to diagnose whether you have hemorrhoids. If you have, they will then determine whether the CRH O’Regan System is the right one for you. If it is, treatment can begin immediately.

After the treatment, you will likely feel fullness or a dull ache in the rectum over the course of 24 hours. You can buy over the counter medication to relieve any discomfort but this sensation normally goes away within a few hours. While you can return to your normal activity immediately after the procedure, we advise that you stay at home for the remainder of the day and avoid any activities that may require a lot of effort. You may start doing your regular activities the next day.

Once you are fully recovered, it’s essential that you make some changes in your lifestyle to avoid hemorrhoids from recurring. Drinking at least eight glasses of water daily is a great start. You should also incorporate a diet high in fiber. Adequate intake of fluid and fiber reduces your risk of constipation and, thus, makes bowel movements easier. Another way to decrease straining with bowel movements is to avoid sitting on the toilet for long periods of time. It’s also important to stay hydrated and be active, especially during a long-haul flight.

Why choose CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment?


Chances are you have tried home remedies such as warm baths, ointments and creams to treat your hemorrhoids. While this alternative treatment can relieve pain, they don’t address the root cause of pain, itching, bleeding and discomfort. If you’re looking for a permanent solution to get rid of your hemorrhoids without undergoing surgery and experiencing pain, the CRH O’Regan System is the best option for you.

What makes CRH O’Regan better than other non-surgical approaches to hemorrhoids is that it has the highest success rates with fewer complications and lower recurrence rate. In a study conducted by the University of British Columbia, it shows that out of 1,852 patients who went through the treatment only 16 of them experienced complications. They comprise less than 1% of the overall number of patients. This proves that CRH O’Regan is much safer than traditional banding. It is also reported that less than 1% of patients experienced post-procedure pain. When it comes to the recurrence rate, the same study reveals that only 88 patients or 4.8% had their hemorrhoids recurred.

Another great advantage of CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment is that if you have multiple hemorrhoids, you will be treated one at a time in separate visits to reduce the risk of complications. If you’re worried about the cost, good news is that most insurance plans cover the CRH O’Regan System. And since this is a non-surgical procedure, its cost is remarkably cheaper than hemorrhoid surgery.
