Hemorrhoids are tissue that fall down from above into the rectum. Once there, they bleed, itch and hurt.
At the Mid-South Rectal Clinic, 80% of the patients with hemorrhoids are treated with simple, painless, non-operative hemorrhoidal banding.
Patients who require surgery undergo an operation called the Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy, which is an operation done up in the rectum where there are no pain nerves. Dr. Fox is one of the world’s experts in the Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy. Doctors come from all over the world to learn the operation from him.
