Hemorrhoid Surgery

Hemorrhoids can be painful and uncomfortable. They are swollen veins along the anal canal. Though painful, they are typically not serious. They are caused by too much pressure in the rectal area, pressure in the tissues that causes them to swell, pregnancy and increased weight gain. At Surry Surgical Associates, we assist in hemorrhoid surgery to help relieve pain and bleeding. Hemorrhoids are removed in this procedure if other treatments have not helped.

Symptoms of hemorrhoids are:

  • Bleeding during bowel movements or in rectal area
  • Itching
  • Rectal pain and sensitivity
