Piles Treatment in Chennai

Piles also called as hemorrhoids are the swollen blood vessels in or around the anus and rectum. These veins are very painful. Piles occur due to the increased pressure in the external and internal veins of the anal canal. Hemorrhoids can be classified into two types:
  • Internal
  • External
Internal piles occur above 2-4 cm above the opening of the anus. On the other hand, external piles occur on the outside edge of the anus. These are painful because the lower part of the anal canal has painful nerve fibers. Internal piles are common and less painful because the upper anal canal has no pain nerve fibers.

Symptoms of piles
  • After going to the toilet, a feeling that the bowels are still full
  • Pain while defecating
  • Bright red blood after a bowel movement
  • A hard lump may be felt around the anus. This can be painful
  • The area surrounding the anus will be red and sore
  • Itchiness around the anus

Internal hemorrhoids can be classified into
Grade 1: These are small swellings in the inside lining of the anal canal. These are common piles.
Grade 2: Larger than grade 1. While going to the toilet they may be partly pushed out and quickly return back.
Grade 3: Seen outside the anus. The patient feels them hanging out but can push inside with fingers.
Grade 4: They are large and stay outside and cannot be pushed back with fingers.

Treatment for piles
  • Injection or Sclerotherapy
  • Stapling

Sclerotherapy is an inexpensive and effective option for treating piles. In this method, an injection of sclerosants is made above the hemorrhoids which result in its shrinking.

This method uses a circular stapling device to remove the hemorrhoidal tissue and close the wound.

Advantages Of Stapling

  • Faster procedure as compared to traditional method
  • Day surgery
  • Patients usually return earlier to work
