“Since the patient group that we need to intervene is at a young age, we have started to stay away from surgical treatment methods that are painful as before and have a later recovery period. One of the most common surgical methods we use in this period is laser procedures. Actually, laser is not a hemorrhoidectomy technique. It is a procedure that involves gluing the vessels here with special laser probes and pulling them upwards and without pain to the patient. The process takes about 5 to 10 minutes. There is no need for bowel cleansing. Anesthesia is not required, and our patient, who is discharged on the same day, can return to his daily life immediately. After the application of laser hemorrhoids, the swelling and expanding vessels shrink in a short time and the patient's complaints disappear.
CAN hemorrhoids be prevented?
Kiss. Dr. İsmail Özsan also stated that patients can make some changes in their life habits in order to prevent hemorrhoid problems, and made the following recommendations:
“Constipation is one of the factors that cause hemorrhoids. For this reason, foods with fiber should be consumed to help the digestive system function properly. One cause of constipation is not getting enough water; Therefore, attention should be paid to daily water consumption. Sedentary life causes many diseases as well as hemorrhoid problems. We recommend a regular 30-45 minute walk every day. Holding the toilet for a long time or sitting in the toilet for a long time can also be inconvenient in terms of hemorrhoids. "
