Haemorrhoid surgery

At Diacor’s hospital, we have recently started using a new surgical technique for the treatment of haemorrhoids and rectal mucosal prolapse. The new technique is known as HAL/RAR. The target group is patients who suffer from anal itching and rectal mucosal prolapse. The technique is particularly suitable for patients who have already undergone several so-called Barron ligations. Barron ligation is a procedure where rubber bands are used to treat mucosal prolapse.

During a HAL procedure, the blood vessels that feed the haemorrhoids are sewn shut, so that the haemorrhoids shrink. During a RAR procedure, the loose mucous membrane is tightened. In some cases, these two techniques are combined. These procedures do not cause any wounds, so recovery is usually quick and painless in comparison to the recovery process after traditional Milligan surgery. Most patients only need a week of sick leave. There are no particular restrictions and no need for local treatment after the procedure.
