  Hemorrhoidectomy
Hemorrhoidectomy
Hemorrhoidectomy is surgery to remove hemorrhoids. You will be given universal anesthesia or spinal anesthesia so that you will not feel pain.
Openings are made in the tissue about the hemorrhoid. The swollen vein inside the hemorrhoid is knotted off to prevent bleeding, and the hemorrhoid is removed. The surgical area might be sewn closed or left open. Medicated gauze shelters the wound.
Surgery can be ended with a knife (scalpel), a tool that uses electricity (cautery pencil), or a laser.
The process is usually done in a surgery center. You will most expected go home the same day (outpatient).
There is a procedure that uses a round stapling device to remove hemorrhoidal tissue and close the coiled. No incision is made. In this process, the hemorrhoid is lifted and then "stapled" back into place in the anal canal. This surgery is named stapled hemorrhoidopexy. People who have fastened surgery may have less pain after surgery than people who have the old-style hemorrhoid surgery. But the stapled surgery is more expensive. And persons who have stapled surgery are more likely to have hemorrhoids come back and essential surgery again.
