Piles (Haemorrhoids) Treatment Dubai
Piles or Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located around the anus and lower rectum. Almost 50% of adults above the age of 50 years have small haemorrhoids, although most of them do not have any symptoms. Hemorrhoids can either be internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids develop within the anus or rectum. External hemorrhoids develop outside the anus. External hemorrhoids are the most common and the most troublesome. Hemorrhoids cause pain, severe itching, and difficulty in sitting.
“The good news is that piles are treatable.”
Taking Piles treatment in dubai is common in people who have long standing constipation, and those who strain a lot during a bowel movement or those who have a family history of piles. Ladies during pregnancy also develop piles due to increased pressure of the enlarged uterus on the veins.
The symptoms of hemorrhoids include:
- Extreme itching around the anus
- Irritation and pain around the anus
- An itchy or painful lump or swelling near your anus
- Fecal leakage
- Painful bowel movement
- Blood on your tissue after having a bowel movement
Most cases of piles haemorrhoids can be treated effectively with diet, good hygiene, and topical medications. In some cases, though, diet and drugs are not enough. People who do not respond to non-surgical treatments might experience long-term relief through surgery. Surgery should be considered for people with large haemorrhoids that are very painful or bleeding.
Surgery for Haemorrhoids
Haemorrhoidectomy: Surgery to remove hemorrhoids is called haemorrhoidectomy. During haemorrhoidectomy, the doctor makes incisions around the anus to cut away the hemorrhoids. This is generally an outpatient procedure, and patients usually go home the same day. Surgery usually relieves the pain, swelling, bleeding, and itching caused by hemorrhoids. However one should expect pain after the surgery since the incisions are made in a highly sensitive area.
Stapled Haemorrhoidopexy: This is a minimally invasive procedure to treat hemorrhoids and/or prolapse, a condition in which the hemorrhoids or anal tissue slips down out of the anal canal. During this surgery, a stapler-like device is used to reposition the hemorrhoids and cut off their blood supply. Without blood, the hemorrhoids eventually shrivel and die. This procedure causes much less pain and faster recovery compared to traditional haemorrhoidectomy.
Laser Haemorrhoidectomy: A special, precise laser beam is used to burn away hemorrhoidal tissue. This is a simple procedure which causes less pain and faster recovery.

Rubber band ligation: A rubber band is placed around the base of the haemorrhoid to cut off the blood supply and kill the tissue.
Sclerotherapy: A chemical solution is injected around the blood vessel that supplies the haemorrhoid to shrink and destroy it.
“After surgery it is important to eat a high-fiber diet, maintain good hygiene, and avoid becoming constipated, which can cause new hemorrhoids to form.”
