In more than 20 years of clinical experience, a majority of patients chose infrared coagulation (IRC) over other hemorrhoid treatments. This non-surgical procedure can significantly shorten recovery time, allowing patients to return to normal activities immediately. IRC is safe and effective. Complications are rare and usually limited to minor post procedure bleeding. IRC offers state-of-the-art, user-friendly technology and excellent reimbursement from Medicare and private insurers.

How Does IRC Work?
No preparation, medication or anesthesia is required prior to the treatment, which lasts approximately 10 minutes per session; in emergency or urgent care facilities this can drastically increase patient turn over time and reduce wait times.
During the procedure a small probe is positioned directly above the hemorrhoid and several quick bursts of infrared light are applied. The light coagulates the veins that supply the hemorrhoid with blood effectively eliminating its supply and causing it to diminish in size. The patient may experience a feeling of warmth around the area but it should not be painful. Over the next few weeks the hemorrhoid will continue to shrink and post treatment effects are extremely rare, seen in less than one percent of patients.
On average one to four treatments are required, with a small incidence of recurrence. Patients should avoid heavy lifting or straining but will otherwise be able to resume normal activity immediately following the procedure.
Hemorrhoid Treatment Options
- Rubber band litigation or hemorrhoid banding – A specialized rubber band is wound around the base of the hemorrhoid, cutting off the blood supply and causing it to shrink.
- Sclerotherapy – A chemical solution is injected into the hemorrhoid which hardens the tissue and collapses the veins.
