Laser treatment has revolutionized the treatment of several eye disorders initially. Now, it promises to do the same for various gynecological problems and digestive or anorectal problems such as piles, fissure, and fistula. Laser surgery is without cuts, stitches, and bleeding; that is the beauty of LASER!
By operating piles with a laser instead of a knife, surgeons minimize the trauma of surgery, chances of complications and the extent of pain and discomfort. The hospital stay reduces to 1 or 2 days instead of one week and sometimes completely eliminating the stay as it can be done as an outpatient basis(in the doctor’s office). The patient returns to the normal routine within a day or two.
How does Laser Surgery Work for Piles Patients?
If recently approved laser surgery for piles is widely accepted, a lot of piles patients can be saved from months and years of piles problem that they use to keep it to themselves due to embarrassment. Instead of surgically removing piles, the laser can control the problem by simply destroying the affected piles area without cuts, stitches, and bleeding. The intensely concentrated laser beams are used to destroy the damaged veins and tissues and shrink the hemorrhoids or piles by cutting off the blood supply to the particular area.
According to laser piles specialist Dr. Vaibhav Kapoor, co-founder at Pristyn Care, a Healthcare Organisation in Gurgaon, the beauty of laser is its ability to destroy just the diseased tissue, causing little or no damage to surrounding normal tissues. The precision and control related to laser treatment are difficult. There is little or no blood loss as the laser beam seals off small blood vessels in the affected area.
The risk of infection is reduced since much of the laser surgery for piles is done without incision or direct contact with the tissues being treated. Furthermore, the heat of the laser can sterilize the area, destroying the infectious tissues in the process.
Some of the advantages of laser treatment are:-
- The treatment takes 30-40 minutes and can be completed in one day. If things go well i.e, the surgery is a success, you’ll be able to go home, completely cured, in less than 6-7 hours after getting treated.
- It is clinically safer and has no side-effects at all. Laser treatment is USFDA approved.
- The cost of treatment is not very high. That said if it is difficult for you to manage the cost from your own pocket, use your health insurance plan to pay the cost.
- The process is nonsurgical in nature, involves no cuts, stitches, bleeding or any other side effects.
- Low chances of recurrence, and a higher success rate.
Even prolapsing piles are stitched up inside the body, rather than cutting any tissue away. A soluble adhesive glue is used so there are no cuts or stitches to be removed. With so many advantages, laser treatment for piles is used widely. In addition to all this, laser surgery needs professional training before a surgeon comfortably performs one.
