Hemorrhoids or piles are one of the oldest and most embarrassing problems faced by mankind. You’d be surprised to know that 75% of all people suffer from hemorrhoids at some point during their lives. Many of these people postpone or avoid treatment because of the recovery time and the pain which is commonly associated with traditional surgical treatment methods. However, Dr. Reese takes pride in promising patients treatment that is not only quick, but easy too!

Hemorrhoids Minneapolis - Internal and External Hemorrhoids
Most people who have hemorrhoids are likely to suffer from an annoying pain or itch in the anal area. It may also take on the form of a protruding lump or can appear as bleeding during bowel movement. External hemorrhoids appear outside the anus while internal ones develop inside the rectum.

There are four degrees of hemorrhoids

First degree: There is no protrusion but there is an annoying pain or itch in the anal area.

Second degree: The hemorrhoid protrudes outside the anal canal during bowel movements and then draws back in immediately.

Third degree: Even though the hemorrhoid protrudes, it reduces with manual reduction.

Fourth degree: The protrusion is permanent and will not reduce.

Sensitive skin covers third and fourth degree hemorrhoids which appear externally. These bleed only when they rupture. First and second degree hemorrhoids appear as protrusions inside the rectum. Even through they are less sensitive, they do bleed.

Dr. Reese prides himself in providing hemorrhoid patients with Infrared Coagulation (IRC) treatment. IRC comprises of exposing the area above the hemorrhoid to a flash of infrared light. This is done by means of a small probe which is placed on the affected area. This causes coagulation, shrinking and receding of the veins which enter the hemorrhoid. The treatment takes less than five minutes. Patients need three to five treatments.

Stop putting yourself through the pain of hemorrhoids and talk to Dr. Reese today to find out how you can be rid of this embarrassing problem.
