Dublin City Clinic Haemorrhoid Treatment

How does it work?

The treatment itself is very simple and has been clinically researched for over 150 years, with advances in medical technology now making it a mainstream practice.

Our doctors will identify and gently rest a probe on the base of the haemorrhoid(s) present. There is no cutting, stitching or heat applied, meaning no anaesthetic, which are some of the main reasons our treatment is considered low risk.

The device generates a small current of up to 16mAmp, which feels only slightly uncomfortable, though not painful, which stimulates a chemical reaction in the haemorrhoid, creating an excess of alkali which accumulates to seal off the feeding varicose blood vessel.

This results in the haemorrhoid being starved of its blood supply and it shrinks accordingly. Sometimes it may take more than one treatment to complete the process where the blood vessels are fully sealed and the haemorrhoid completely disappears.

The effect of the treatment continues to work over the following 4 weeks, at which point our aftercare team will be in touch to discuss symptom changes and see if any further treatments are required.

External haemorrhoids

External haemorrhoids, as the name suggests are located outside of the anus, or on the anus itself. They are often pink or skin-coloured, soft and not painful, much like skin tags. Sometimes, they can become swollen, itchy or irritated, and very painful if thrombosed, where a clot gets trapped inside.
A lot of people are quite self-conscious if them as they are unsightly and affect hygiene. Exroid electrotherapy is not effective in treating true external haemorrhoids, but we can treat them with cryotherapy if they are a suitable shape and size.
External haemorrhoids are often confused with large internal haemorrhoids that protrude or prolapse through the anus, which can be treated effectively with eXroid electrotherapy. We will be able to make this diagnosis when we assess patients, and advise them on the best treatment plan.
