Hemorrhoids encompass a range of conditions, including internal and external hemorrhoids, anal tags, thrombosed hemorrhoids, and mixed hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids are classified from I to IV based on the degree of prolapse. In addition to causing discomfort, pain, bleeding, and prolapse, hemorrhoids can lead to complications like thrombosis, anemia, and infection. Furthermore, many hemorrhoid patients also present with comorbidities such as anal fissures, fistulas, or anal warts. Given the diversity of these conditions, it’s essential for a comprehensive hemorrhoid clinic to offer a variety of treatment modalities and options to address each patient’s unique needs and deliver thorough care.
Relying on a single treatment modality for hemorrhoids, regardless of their severity, type, or associated anorectal conditions, often results in subpar outcomes and inadequate quality of care.
The reality is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for hemorrhoids or their associated anorectal symptoms. Specialized hemorrhoid clinics should provide multiple treatment modalities featuring state-of-the-art technologies to effectively manage hemorrhoids and related ailments.
