Haemorrhoids removal doctor near me
Seeking medical advice for haemorrhoids can be difficult for patients, and many feel embarrassed or squeamish to discuss their symptoms which is why seeking the best doctor for haemorrhoid removal is so important. Choosing the right haemorrhoid doctor or surgeon will help you to understand the condition whilst delivering you the best treatment options to enable you to return to your everyday life quickly and symptom free.
What is the best doctor to see for haemorrhoids?
Usually, patients will have seen their GP or a pharmacist about their haemorrhoid symptoms first, and in most cases offered creams to ease the pain, itching or swelling and medication to help soften stools. In mild haemorrhoid cases this can be enough to treat haemorrhoids, but it is advised to see a doctor if there is no improvement after a week, or if you are getting recurrent instances of piles. Your doctor is then likely to refer you to see a colorectal surgeon specialist.
What type of doctor removes haemorrhoids?
Colorectal surgeons specialise in physiology of the lower digestive tract which includes the colon, rectum, anus, small intestine, and pelvic floor. Colorectal surgeons will be the best type of doctor to see for haemorrhoid treatment as they will have in-depth knowledge to be able to diagnose, treat and remove haemorrhoids.
Can a gastroenterologist treat haemorrhoids?
A gastroenterologist is a doctor who specialises in conditions of the pancreas, colon, rectum, stomach, small intestine, liver, oesophagus, gallbladder, and bile ducts. Gastroenterologists can diagnose haemorrhoids and provide non-surgical treatments like haemorrhoid banding treatment but unlike a colorectal specialist, they are not able to provide surgical options for haemorrhoid treatment.
