Hemorrhoid Removal Without Surgery

Accessible, safe, non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment that yields exceptional outcomes.

If you've been experiencing rectal bleeding and received a diagnosis of internal hemorrhoids, you might believe your treatment choices are limited to home remedies or invasive surgeries. However, hemorrhoid artery embolization (HAE) offers safe and effective symptom relief.

Advantages of Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization (HAE)

HAE, also known as superior rectal artery embolization, is an innovative endovascular treatment that relieves hemorrhoid symptoms without surgical excision. It is a painless outpatient treatment that is typically performed in 45 minutes.

A slender catheter is inserted through the wrist or the groin. The catheter is then guided using imaging technology to the blood vessels that feed the rectal tissues. An embolic agent is released, which inhibits blood flow to the hemorrhoids and starves the tissues. The hemorrhoids shrink over a few weeks, alleviating symptoms.

HAE doesn't require general anesthesia or closing sutures.

Quick Recovery

Because HAE is an outpatient procedure, there is no need for overnight monitoring. Patients can return home on the day of the procedure and resume their normal activities within a few days.

Another advantage of HAE is that it leaves behind only a small mark on the leg and minimal -- if any -- scarring.

Long-Term Results

One of the notable advantages of HAE is its ability to provide long-lasting results. Patients who have undergone HAE experience relief from rectal bleeding for more than 12 months. Studies have shown that after undergoing HAE, over 90 percent of patients have reported a complete stoppage of rectal bleeding and other troubling symptoms.

Fewer Complications

Invasive hemorrhoid surgery can cause worrying complications, like additional pain, bleeding, and incontinence. HAE doesn't modify hemorrhoidal tissues, so patients don't have to manage pain or bleeding from an excision site.

Moreover, HAE treats hemorrhoids while preserving the integrity of the surrounding tissues and avoiding any impact on bowel control. Unlike other surgical treatments, this procedure leaves the hemorrhoidal tissues intact.


HAE has emerged as an affordable treatment option. Its minimally invasive nature, outpatient setting, reduced recovery time, and lower complication rates make it cost-effective compared to traditional surgical interventions such as a hemorrhoid banding procedure or hemorrhoid removal surgery (hemorrhoidectomy).
