What is Piles Surgery?

Pile surgery, also known as hemorrhoidectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to treat hemorrhoids, these are nothing but the swollen and inflamed blood vessels in the anal area. The surgery involves the removal of hemorrhoidal tissue to alleviate symptoms and provide relief.

Piles surgery may be necessary for the following medical conditions:
  • For hemorrhoids that cause persistent and severe pain

  • For hemorrhoids that cause excessive bleeding

  • To treat the hemorrhoids that are causing chronic discomfort and interfere with daily activities

  • Symptoms that Indicate the Need for Piles Surgery:

  • Persistent and severe pain in the anal area

  • Excessive bleeding during bowel movements

  • Itching, swelling, and irritation around the anus

  • Hemorrhoids that have prolapsed or protruded and cannot be pushed back inside

  • Benefits of Piles Surgery:

  • Reduction or elimination of bleeding during bowel movements

  • Improvement in overall quality of life and ability to perform daily activities without hindrance

  • Preparations for Piles Surgery:

    Preparations for Piles surgery may include:

  • Following specific dietary guidelines, including a fiber-rich diet and adequate hydration

  • Preoperative tests, which may include blood tests and imaging studies, as advised by the healthcare provider

  • Discontinuation or adjustment of certain medications, as instructed by the surgeon

  • How is Pile Surgery Performed?

    The Piles surgery procedure typically involves the following steps:
  • Anesthesia:

    The patient will be given either general or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure comfort during the surgery.

  • Incision and Removal:

    The surgeon makes incisions around the hemorrhoidal tissue and carefully removes the swollen veins.

  • Closure:

    The remaining tissue is sutured or sealed using techniques like sutures, staples, or cauterization to promote healing.

  • Dressing:

    The surgical area is covered with sterile dressings to protect the wound and promote healing.

  • Before the Surgery:

  • Detailed discussion with the surgeon regarding the procedure, expected outcomes, and potential risks

  • Preoperative evaluation and necessary tests

  • Preparing the bowel through dietary modifications or medication as advised by the surgeon

  • During the Surgery:

  • Administration of anesthesia for comfort and pain control

  • Surgical removal of hemorrhoidal tissue using appropriate techniques

  • Monitoring of vital signs throughout the procedure

  • After the Surgery:

  • Recovery in a designated area under medical supervision

  • Gradual resumption of normal activities based on the surgeon's instructions

  • Prescription of pain medications and stool softeners, if necessary

  • Follow-up appointments to monitor healing and address any concerns

  • Postoperative Care:

  • You need to take proper wound care, including keeping the area clean and dry

  • It is advised to consume a high-fiber diet and stay hydrated to prevent constipation

  • The patient should avoid straining during bowel movements

  • Take the recommended drugs as directed by the surgeon.

  • Types of Piles Surgery:

  • Closed Hemorrhoidectomy:

    Closed hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove external or internal hemorrhoids. During the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions around the hemorrhoidal tissue and removes the hemorrhoids. The incisions are then closed with sutures or left to heal naturally

  • Significance:

    This technique is effective in treating severe or recurring hemorrhoids but may cause postoperative pain compared to other procedures.

  • Open Hemorrhoidectomy:

    Open hemorrhoidectomy is a traditional surgical approach for removing hemorrhoids. It involves making incisions in the anus to access and remove the hemorrhoidal tissue. The incisions are left open, allowing the wounds to heal naturally over time. Open hemorrhoidectomy is often recommended for large or prolapsed hemorrhoids but may require a longer recovery period and be associated with more postoperative pain.

  • Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy:

    Also known as the procedure for prolapse and hemorrhoids (PPH), is a minimally invasive procedure performed to treat prolapsed hemorrhoids. It involves using a circular stapler device to reposition and remove excess hemorrhoidal tissue. The procedure reduces blood flow to the hemorrhoids, helping to alleviate symptoms. Stapled hemorrhoidectomy generally results in less pain and faster recovery compared to open or closed techniques.

  • Rubber Band Ligation:

    This is a non-surgical procedure commonly used to treat internal hemorrhoids. It involves placing a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid, which helps cut off its blood supply. Over time, the hemorrhoid shrinks and falls off, typically within a week.

  • Significance:

    Rubber band ligation is a simple and effective procedure. It may require multiple sessions for the complete removal of all hemorrhoids.

  • Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy:

    It is a surgical procedure primarily used to treat anal fissures but can also help alleviate symptoms of hemorrhoids. The surgeon will insert a scope, or illuminated tube, into the anus to get a better picture of the hemorrhoid during the procedure. The internal anal sphincter, a tiny ring of muscle that regulates your anus, is cut off with small medical tools.

  • Risks of Piles Surgery:

  • Pain or discomfort during the recovery period

  • Bleeding or infection at the surgical site

  • Difficulty in passing stools or temporary difficulty controlling bowel movements

  • Rare complications like urinary retention or fecal incontinence (more common with extensive procedures)

  • Frequency and Recovery Time:

    The frequency of Piles surgery depends on the individual case and the severity of the hemorrhoids. Recovery time can vary, but most individuals can expect to resume normal activities within a few weeks to a month following the surgery, depending on the type of procedure and individual healing.

    Cost and Financing Options:

    The average cost of Piles surgery in India can vary depending on factors such as the hospital, surgeon's fees, the type of procedure, and additional medical services required. It is recommended to consult with hospitals and healthcare providers directly for accurate cost estimates. Financing options, including health insurance coverage and medical loans, may be available to assist patients with the financial aspects of the surgery.
