Highly Trained Hemorrhoid Doctor in Chicago
About Hemorrhoids and Their Treatment
Hemorrhoids are a normal part of the human anatomy in the anus, and everyone has them. In fact, hemorrhoids affect millions of patients every year in the United States.
These “cushions” consist of superficial blood vessels that can become enlarged. If they stay persistently enlarged, they can cause symptoms such as bleeding, bulging out of the anus (hemorrhoid prolapse), itching and persistent drainage. They generally don’t hurt but in certain rare circumstances can cause significant pain.
Doctor for Hemorrhoid Surgery and Non-Surgical Treatment
If you have symptoms, you should be examined for hemorrhoid disease. Which doctor treats hemorrhoids? Your best bet is to see a specifically trained doctor that treats and removes hemorrhoids.
Our specialists perform a thorough examination to ensure the diagnosis is truly hemorrhoids and not any other common anal problem. Sometimes, further workup is needed, such as a colonoscopy or CT scans, to rule out other causes of rectal bleeding such as cancer, polyps or diverticulosis.
We treat hemorrhoids in a variety of ways, including dietary and lifestyle changes, medication, procedures performed in the office and procedures performed in an operating room under anesthesia. Treatment is customized to each patient’s needs and severity of disease.
