Laser proctology is the surgical treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus using a laser. Common conditions treated with laser proctology include hemorrhoids, fissures, fistula, pilonidal sinus, and polyps. The technique is increasingly being used to treat piles in both women and men.
Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Radiation) is a light beam of high energy. This light beam is used to burn or cut the abnormality, which was the reason for the surgery. Present, laser techniques are very advanced and much safer; they leave no scars, are bloodless and less painful. They also cause lesser complications.
HeLP is a minimally invasive laser procedure for piles, which does not require anesthesia. A Doppler is used to identify the affected branches of the rectal artery. Once they have been identified, a laser diode fiber photocoagulation of the branches is done.
LHP is similar to HeLP, but in this surgery, blood is stopped from flowing to the hemorrhoidal plexus by photocoagulating the affected branches of the rectal artery.
Also called laser cauterization, this is a procedure in which the surgeon shrinks the swollen piles by burning them with the laser. Sometimes, the surgeon uses a narrow laser beam and focuses only on the hemorrhoids to avoid damage to nearby tissues. The narrow beam is passed through the anus and focused on the mass of the piles. The controlled exposure of the submucosal zone to the energy of the laser causes a mass to shrink.
The fibrosis is reconstructed to create connecting tissue. This enables the mucosa to adhere to the underlying tissue. This prevents prolapsed. This is a safe surgery and causes minimal bleeding and heals faster.
This is a minimally-invasive technique to treat anorectal fistula, which preserves the sphincter. The affected tissue, called epithelialized is neutralized by focusing the laser in a controlled, circular movement.
Doctors may prescribe LIS when chronic anal fissure does not respond to medication and conventional treatments. The laser is used to remove a small portion of the sphincter muscle. This helps alleviate pressure, reduces pain and allows the fissure to heal
|FEATURES||LASER PROCTOLOGICAL SURGERY||OPEN SURGERY|
|Cuts and Wounds||No||Yes|
|Bleeding due to Cuts and Stitches||Very Less||More Bleeding|
|Risk of Infection||Very Less||High|
|Rest after Surgery||Can Resume Work||1-2 Months Rest|
Surgery lasts 30-40 minutes only for single leg. You may go home the very same day.
Procedure is performed under local anesthesia. No cuts, no sutures lead to a painless surgery experience.
Laser radial fiber is inserted into your vein through a catheter having just about 2 mm diameter making the procedure completely minimally invasive.
No cuts, no stripping leads to a bloodless surgery.
Very small incision required to introduce laser fiber inside your veins. No suture required afterwards.
Extremely small incision and advanced laser procedure leads to no scarring afterwards.
