How the Procedure Works
A doctor first examines the rectum with one of his or her fingers, and then inserts a small device called an anoscope into the rectum. This allows the doctor to see the hemorrhoids and determine if they should be treated. Next, the Nexus Ligator System will be inserted through the anoscope. In a matter of seconds, the doctor squeezes the handle on the instrument and applies a tiny, latex-free rubber band on to one of the hemorrhoids. Typically, patients experience very minimal, if any, discomfort during the procedure.
The rubber band disrupts the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, and within a few days, the hemorrhoid will shrivel up and then pass, usually unnoticed, with a normal bowel movement. That’s it! The entire procedure takes less than 10 minutes. Who knew that getting rid of your hemorrhoids could be so easy?
