Hemorrhoids are a collection of blood vessels in the lower rectum. Everyone is born with hemorrhoids as a normal part of the vascular tissue in the rectum. However, hemorrhoidal tissue can enlarge and may require treatment when the veins enlarged and become painful or irritating. If you believe you are experiencing pain due to a hemorrhoid, request an appointment with our gastrointestinal specialists at Gastroenterology Associates of Florida.

The HET Bipolar System is a proprietary technology that allows for the gentle, simple, and efficient non-surgical treatment of symptomatic low-grade (grades I and II) hemorrhoids in a single procedure. The energy is kept at a low-temperature level to reduce the feeling of pain. It is also kept below the dentate line (the line that divides the upper two-thirds and lower third of the anal canal).

When approaching treatment this way, it means that it is completed in the area where the body doesn’t feel much pain. The less you feel pain, the more comfortable you will feel during your treatment. For more information on this procedure, ask your Gastroenterology Associates of Florida provider about how hemorrhoid treatment above the “pain line” could result in a hemorrhoid removal procedure with minimal discomfort.

The main benefit of using the HET Bipolar System is that it’s a fast therapy that typically takes only seconds to complete. When compared to other hemorrhoid treatment options like banding and infrared coagulation procedures, its difference is that it is done in a single appointment.

Additionally, when a hemorrhoid is treated using the HET System, it can treat multiple hemorrhoids in a single therapy session. The HET Bipolar System enables more efficient treatment of grades I and II internal hemorrhoids as compared to techniques like banding because it typically only requires one session.

If you believe you would benefit from this treatment, contact our providers at Gastroenterology Associates of Florida so that we can schedule a consultation that works best with your schedule.

You are a good candidate for HET Bipolar hemorrhoid treatment if you have been diagnosed with a mild-to-moderate internal hemorrhoid. While both internal and external hemorrhoids are called hemorrhoids, these internal and external conditions are different – they cause different symptoms and are treated differently.

Our Gastroenterology Associates of Florida GI doctor can tell you whether your hemorrhoid symptoms are internal or external. Grades I and II internal hemorrhoids are considered mild-to-moderate and can be treated with non-surgical methods using the HET system. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more.
