Conventional haemorrhoidectomy


Overview

A haemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure which removes severe symptomatic haemorrhoids. It is typically recommended for patients who experience severe symptoms such as bleeding, pain or prolapse. For more information on the range of treatments suitable for haemorrhoids, click here.

A conventional haemorrhoidectomy is performed under general anaesthesia, with some postoperative pain generally experienced in the first week following surgery. The haemorrhoidal tissue is removed and the wound is sutured, which may take four to six weeks to heal.
