In the past, hemorrhoids have rarely been treated with anything other than over the counter drugs. However, with the development of newer painless hemorrhoid treatments, more people are choosing to treat their hemorrhoids with non-invasive office procedures such as Hemorrhoid Banding.
What is Hemorrhoid Banding?
Hemorrhoid banding or hemorrhoid ligation is a non-surgical method of treating troublesome hemorrhoids. Rubber band ligation is the most widely used technique for the treatment of symptomatic internal hemorroids. Dr. Kenneth Brown uses the CRH O’Regan Painless Banding system. This is a very effective minimally invasive procedure performed in his Hemorrhoid Treatment Center that only takes a few minutes. The CRH-O’Regan disposable system represents a significant advancement in the treatment of hemorrhoids by offering a painless and effective treatment.
“We consider Dr. Brown to be a leader in the field of gastroenterology, and we’re proud that he has been using the CRH O’Regan System since 2008. Due to his experience and expertise, I would recommend him to anyone needing non-surgical treatment of hemorrhoids.”

How does Hemorrhoid Banding work?
The banding procedure works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. During the brief and painless procedure, a small rubber band is placed just above the internal hemorrhoid where there are few pain-sensitive nerve endings. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink, and the band will fall off typically within 24 hours.
Dr. Brown uses the CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Removal System when performing a Hemorrhoid Banding procedure. This system works for both internal and external hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoid Banding offers patients a permanent and painless solution to the discomfort and recovery time associated with other hemorrhoid removal options.

How do I prepare for the Hemorrhoid Banding Procedure?
Since the procedure is done in Dr. Brown’s Plano,TX Gastroenterology office, there is no need for fasting, bowel preparation or anesthesia. We will review your health history and medications to make sure you will be a good candidate for the hemorrhoid treatment.
What happens after the Hemorrhoid Banding Treatment?
Generally patients resume their normal activity immediately after the procedure. We do recommend to try and avoid heavy lifting, rigorous exercise or similar activities. You can resume full activity the next day. Most patients have a sensation of fullness, but not pain, and this sensation goes away in a few hours. You can have normal bowel movements immediately after the procedure.
