Haemorrhoidectomy

£2,423.00

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are soft fleshy lumps just inside your back passage (anus). They bleed easily when you have a bowel movement. They do not usually cause pain but can cause itching. When large, they can pass through your anus (prolapsed pile), feeling like a lump when you clean yourself. Haemorrhoids develop gradually, often over a long period of time. They are associated with constipation, often run in families and can be made worse by pregnancy.

Description

The operation is usually performed under a general anaesthetic and takes about 20 minutes. Your surgeon will remove your haemorrhoids by either cutting them away or using a staple gun.
