Your Treatment Starts Here

When over-the-counter creams and medications don't seem to be helping, seeking treatment from a specialist for your hemorrhoids may be the next step. At Spectrum Health, our gastroenterologists and colorectal surgeons specialize in treating hemorrhoids and bring a wealth of experience and treatment options, including sclerotherapy and minimally invasive surgery.

Treatments We Provide

Diet and Nutrition Counseling

Even if you've tried dietary measures, talking to a dietitian may help. Our dietitians have more ways to boost fiber and fluids to help soften stools. Less strain means reduced pressure on your hemorrhoids.

Topical Prescription Medicine

Your doctor can prescribe stronger topical and swelling relievers. There are other medicines that can speed relief from irritation, too. Let's find the best ones for you.

Stool Softeners

Stool softeners and fiber supplements may help. Your doctor can prescribe stronger options if you've had little luck with over-the-counter brands.

Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids Surgery

This minimally invasive procedure is also called a stapled hemorrhoidopexy. What you need to know is that it results in less pain and shorter hospital stays.
