Piles, are swollen veins in the anus or rectum that can cause discomfort, pain, and bleeding. In some cases, piles may require surgery to alleviate the symptoms and prevent complications.

Piles surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The surgeon will make incisions around the anus to access the hemorrhoids and remove them. There are several techniques that can be used for piles surgery, including:

  • Conventional hemorrhoidectomy: This is the most common technique and involves removing the hemorrhoids using a scalpel.
  • Stapled hemorrhoidectomy: This technique involves using a stapling device to remove the hemorrhoids and reposition the remaining tissue.
  • Laser hemorrhoidectomy: This technique involves using a laser to remove the hemorrhoids.

The choice of technique will depend on the severity and location of the piles and the patient’s overall health.

The recovery period for piles surgery can vary depending on the technique used and the patient’s overall health. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few weeks, but it may take several months for the area to fully heal. It is important to follow the surgeon’s instructions on wound care and follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and prevent complications.

In conclusion, piles surgery is a safe and effective way to treat severe hemorrhoids and alleviate the associated symptoms. While recovery can take some time, most patients are able to return to their normal activities after a full recovery. If you are experiencing symptoms of piles, speak to your healthcare provider about treatment options, including piles surgery.
