Who are some of my happiest patients? They’re the people who have been told by other providers that the only way to treat their hemorrhoids is with surgery.

They’re also the people who were informed they needed to take a month or more off work for recovery from that surgery. That’s right, I said a month.

So, why are they so happy?

These patients decided to get a second opinion about their hemorrhoids and came to me to determine their options. After a quick exam (it takes less than a minute), I was able to tell them they didn’t need surgery after all. In fact, all they really needed was treatment that requires just a few visits that take just a few minutes of their time—even if they’re suffering from grade 4 hemorrhoids, the most severe form.

In fact, most felt relief for the first time in years after just one treatment, and were shocked by how quick and simple the process really is.

I offer two easy, safe, and effective non-surgical procedures designed to safely eliminate hemorrhoids.

One reduces the blood flow that feeds the hemorrhoids, reducing inflammation and causing them to shrink. The other is better suited to removing larger hemorrhoids. Both take just a few seconds to do. Since they are performed in an area with no nerve endings, they can be administered right in the comfort of my office without anesthesia.

There is virtually no pain, no prep needed, there are no major restrictions, and you don’t have to take time off of work. Consultations are free of charge, and our procedures are covered by insurance.
