Haemorrhoids & Fissure Surgery
Haemorrhoids & anal fissure surgery is undertaken by a General Surgeon. Haemorrhoid surgery is the removal of haemorrhoids, swollen veins that occur around the anus, either inside or outside of the skin around the rectum. Removal (haemorrhoidectomy) may be done with a standard scalpel or with an ultrasonic scalpel to cut away haemorrhoids. In another method tissue from further in the anus is used to close the wound with surgical staples after the haemorrhoids are removed. The procedure may be done with a sedative and local or spinal anaesthetic, or under general anaesthetic. An anal fissure is a small split or tear in the moist tissue (mucosa) lining the anal canal. In sever cases, if the fissures do not go away with home care methods, treatment may involve Botox injections into muscle in the anus (the anal sphincter) and minor surgery to relax the anal muscle.
