Hemorrhoid Banding Procedure in Dallas, TX

Hemorrhoid banding in Dallas, TX is a non-surgical procedure that treats symptomatic internal hemorrhoids. This procedure is quick and usually painless. Also, it differentiates itself from over the counter remedies (e.g. Preparation H) that provide temporary relief by completely treating the hemorrhoid symptoms.

While there are 3 primary types of banding, Dr. James Hakert prefers the CRH O’Regan System (CRH). CRH uses a disposable ligator to create a soft, gentle suction that pulls the appropriate tissue into it. Then, the rubber band can easily and painlessly be placed around the base of the hemorrhoid, where no pain-causing nerve endings are present.

What to Expect with Hemorrhoid Banding Recovery

After a hemorrhoid banding procedure, Dr. Hakert recommends that you not engage in any strenuous activity for the remainder of the day. You can resume full activities the next day. Many patients with office jobs find they can return to work immediately following their appointment.

Patients who receive this procedure tend to have a sensation of fullness, but not pain, and this sensation goes away in a few hours. You can have normal bowel movements immediately after a hemorrhoid banding procedure.

Is Hemorrhoid Banding Covered by Insurance?

Hemorrhoid banding is a procedure that is covered by most insurance plans. However, as insurance coverage varies, it is suggested that you verify coverage with your insurance provider. If you or your insurance provider should need any clarification from Dr. Hakert’s office, please contact us at 214-368-6707.
If you don’t have insurance, ask your physician about cash pay rates. On average, CRH patients require just three to four doctors’ visits – keeping the overall cost for treatment low.
