Your colorectal health is an important part of a long, productive and pain-free life. Common problems like hemorrhoids and anal fissures can cause recurring pain, itching, and bleeding. Even worse, rectal bleeding may be a sign of undiagnosed colorectal cancer.

What are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels in the lower rectum or anus caused by increased pressure or straining. They can cause pain, itching, bleeding and swelling, and when more severe, they can extend through the anus (prolapse), and even clot off or become gangrenous! This very common condition affects about half of Americans by the age of 50. Unfortunatley, hemorrhoids often don't go away on their own, and they tend to worsen over time.

Get permanent relief from hemorrhoids.

"Banding" or cutting off a hemorrhoid's blood supply with tiny rubber bands, is the most common and effective non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment in use today. In our practice, we have taken banding to a new level of excellence. We utilize the patented CRH O'Regan System ™ which is smaller and more comfortable for patients and uses gentle suction instead of metal-toothed forceps to grasp the hemorrhoid, thus significantly reducing the risk of pain and bleeding.

Also, because the device is 100% disposable and single-use, the risk for cross-patient infection (i.e. HIV, hepatitis B and C) associated with inadequately sterilized conventional equipment is eliminated. The hemorrhoid typically falls off within a day or so, and 99.8% of patients have no post-procedure pain. Performed in our offices in as little as 60 seconds, the banding technique has been found to be 99.1% effective.

No more suffering in silence.

No more ointments, creams, or suppositories. No more living with hemorrhoids. In less than a minute you can get rid of them permanently without pain or medication! The CRH O' Regan System ™ is a simple , painless, and highly effective procedure. In fact, many of our patients with office jobs return to work following the appointment. Others rest at home afterwards and resume normal activities the next day. Don't keep treating your hemorrhoids. Remove them.

What is an anal fissure?

An anal fissure is a small tear in the tissue lining the anus, often caused by passing hard, dry stool. Like hemorrhoids, anal fissure are extremely common and can cause bleeding, itching and pain. For those with fissure, a bowel movement can be excruiciating, as if you're "passing razor blades." An anal fissure can be classified as acute (recent onset) or chronic (recurrent or long-term). Chronic fissure often require medical treatment for permanent resolution. We also treat fissure non-surgically, which is better for preserving bowel control. Our tre atments reduce muscle spasm and increase blood supply, helping fissure heal faster. Because good bowel care is important to recover , it is important to avoid constipation and straining, which can prevent the fissure from healing completely.

Are you at risk for colorectal cancer?

Colorectal cancer is the number two cancer killer in the U.S., with more than 55,000 deaths annually. While it is highly preventable and curable if detected early, the disease often produces no symptoms, making it a "silent killer". More than 90% of those diagnosed with colorectal cancer are over the age of 50. In addition, research shows that up to 2.3% of people with bleeding hemorrhoids also have colorecal cancer.
