Excisional haemorrhoidectomy

o Haemorrhoidectomy is an operation to remove larger prolapsing haemorrhoids. This is usually done under general anaesthesia, usually as a day case or a one night stay. The procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic, after meeting the anaesthetist who inserts an intravenous cannula.

Local anaesthetic is used to try to numb the area for up to 24 hours after your surgery. The procedure may take up to 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the haemorrhoids. Where possible, problematic haemorrhoids are removed entirely. It is necessary to leave healthy skin and anal lining between excision sites.
