Haemorrhoids are the most common cause of bleeding from the back passage. Patients may also experience discomfort, itchiness or even prolapse outside the anus, all of which can be particularly distressing and troublesome. Once more sinister causes have been excluded and a confident diagnosis of haemorrhoids has been made, appropriate management of this condition can have a significant impact on patients’ quality of life.
Newer techniques such as transanal haemorrhoidal de-arterialisation (THD) and Haemorrhoidal artery ligation (HALO) are far less painful with excellent results.
Professor Qureshi offers both techniques.
