CRH O’Regan System Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment


Hemorrhoid Banding: The CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Removal System

Few home treatments for hemorrhoids work or offer more than temporary relief. Creams and other home remedies do not resolve the root problem causing the pain, itching, burning, and discomfort.

The CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Removal system offers patients a permanent solution to the problems associated with hemorrhoids and anal fissures through a process called hemorrhoid ligation. Much less invasive than hemorrhoidectomy surgery, hemorrhoid ligation, also called hemorrhoid banding, is a simple process that can be performed in a doctor’s office in just minutes with little discomfort and quick recovery. Effective for the treatment of both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids, hemorrhoid banding offers patients a permanent and painless solution to the other hemorrhoid removal options.

Types of banding:

  • Traditional banding: This process uses a metal-toothed clamp to grab the afflicted tissue and pull it away from the anal wall, allowing the physician to place a rubber band around the hemorrhoid. The metal device can often cause bleeding and pain. One of the criticisms of band ligation using these more traditional techniques is a higher frequency of pain after patients have been treated. With the design of the patented CRH O’Regan System, significant pain is NOT a frequent problem, as less than 1% of patients treated with the CRH O’Regan System experience significant pain.
  • Endoscopic banding: This procedure is the most complicated and expensive of the banding techniques. It typically requires fasting, bowel preparation and sedation much like what is needed for colonoscopy. A flexible scope is placed inside the rectum, and a band is placed through the scope. In addition to being more expensive, time consuming and inconvenient because of the preparation required, there is also typically a higher incidence of significant pain after this type of procedure.

Banding with the CRH O’Regan System:

The CRH O’Regan System: CRH is easy, fast and painless. A disposable ligature is used to create a soft, gentle suction that pulls the afflicted area up allowing a rubber band to easily and painlessly be placed above the hemorrhoid, where no pain-causing nerve endings are present. This band cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid causing it to shrink after the band falls off in a few days. You may not even notice when this happens.

  • Fewer than 5% of patients have a recurrence within 2 years
  • Takes less than 1 minute
  • Less than 1% complication rate — much safer than traditional banding
  • Less than 1% of patients treated with the CRH O’Regan System experience significant pain

While all banding options can provide complete removal of your hemorrhoids, the CRH System offers the best, most comfortable solution. You won’t feel pain or need to take valuable time off work and life. To learn more, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
