For many patients, it is very difficult to go to the toilet in the morning due to painful piles or hemorrhoids. Piles or mulvyadh are swollen blood vessels near the anal opening. They can be felt inside the rectum or it can be a lump outside the rectum. Depending upon the severity of the disease piles can be classified into 4 grades. Grade 1 and early stages of grade 2 can be easily cured through medications and therapies. Later stages of grade 2 and grade 3 are cured using LHP (Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty) while grade 4 is cured using MIPH (Minimally Invasive Procedure for Hemorrhoids) or STAPLER Surgery.

1. LHP (Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty):

This procedure is done under general anesthesia and takes about 20-25 minutes. Laser energy is applied using radially emitting fiber. The controlled emission of laser energy causes vaporization leading the haemorrhoidal mass to shrink.

Advantages of LHP

  • No cuts, no stitches.
  • Painless procedure.
  • Day-care procedure. The patient is discharged on the same day of surgery.
  • Patient can start a normal work routine from the next day of surgery.
  • No sense of urgency after the procedure.

2. MIPH (Minimally Invasive Procedure for Hemorrhoids) or STAPLER Hemorrhoidopexy

This is also done under general anesthesia and a circular stapler device is used to lift up the prolapsed mucosa and to reduce the blood flow to internal hemorrhoids.

Advantages of MIPH

  • Operating time is very short.
  • Minimal blood loss.
  • Shorter hospital stays.
  • Painless procedure.

Risks involved with MIPH

The following risks are associated with STAPLER Surgery:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Staple line stricture
  • Feeling of needing to rush to the toilet.

The risks can be reduced if the surgery is performed by the expert surgeon.

What happens after the surgery?

You can start drinking water after the surgery and can take food as soon as you are hungry. You can start your normal work routine from the next day of surgery.
There might be some pain that can be easily controlled with pain killers. There can be a small amount of bleeding which can be prevented by wearing a pad.
