Hemorrhoids are treated depending on the grade that they are in. As a general rule,
early grades are treated conservatively with medicines, exercise and diet
modification. At later stages a surgical treatment is preferred in order to rule out the
possibility of a recurrence.
An innovation of Dr Porwal himself, this is a conservative approach intended to halt
and reverse the early disease without any surgical intervention:
Medication - Creams ( Anoac ) and stool softeners are used.
Constac - A herbal preparation formulated under the guidance of Dr Porwal by
Ayurvedic doctors at Healing Hands & Herbs.
Diet - Counselling by qualified nutritionist to correct any imbalances in diet and chart
a diet conducive to healthy bowel habits.
Physiotherapy - Pelvic floor physiotherapy helps to strengthen muscles in the region.

LASER HEMORRHOIDOPLASTY (LHP) - LASER
TREATMENT FOR PILES
Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty is the preferred treatment for Grade 2 and early stages of
Grade 3 Piles.This procedure is done under short general anesthesia and takes
about 20 minutes. Through the natural anal opening, laser energy is applied using a
special radially emitting fiber. The controlled emission of laser energy leads to
vaporization causing the hemorrhoidal mass to shrink.
ADVANTAGES OF LHP
•No cuts, no open wounds
• Less post-operative pain as compared to other procedures
• Healing is excellent as there are no cuts or stitches
• No sense of urgency (need to rush to the toilet) after the procedure
• No risk of rectal stenosis
• Patient can return to normal activities within a shorter space of time
POTENTIAL DRAWBACKS OF LHP:
•Burning sensation – Some patients have a burning sensation in the area for a
few days. This Usually disappears with time.
• External skin tag thrombosis
MIPH (MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURE FOR HEMORRHOIDS) AKA PPH
(PROCEDURE FOR PROLAPSE AND HEMORRHOIDS) AKA STAPLER
What is MIPH/PPH?
It is a procedure that was originally conceived in 1994 by Dr Antonio Longo, and
since,has gained popularity as the treatment of choice for Grade 3 and Grade 4
( stapler image) Haemorrhoidal Stapler PPH03, a disposable device (Ethicon,
Johnson & Johnson, USA)
The procedure is usually done under short general anesthesia and takes around 25-
30 minutes. Using the circular stapler, the mucosa which is responsible for the the
prolapse of Hemorrhoids is circumferentially excised and the prolapsed Hemorrhoids
are pulled up back to their normal position.
The Stapler procedure has definite advantages over other treatments available for
• No external cuts/stitches
• Minimal blood loss
• Minimal pain easily managed by painkillers
• Sphincter function is not hampered hence voluntary control over motion is preserved
• Faster recovery - Patient can resume work from 5th day
• Lowest recurrence rate ( 8% ) - This is further brought down to < 1% byMucopexy
technique introduced by Dr Porwal at HHC.
• Safe in diabetics, cardiac patients ( those with heart problems ) and senior citizen
As with any surgical procedure there are possible drawbacks associated with MIPH:
• Inflammation or Infection - Can be prevented with anti-inflammatory agents and
• Urgency (i.e. need to rush to the toilet) - May last for 4-8 weeks. This can be kept under
control with Kegels exercises
• Bleeding following the procedure (6-8%)
• Staple line stricture ( ~5% ) - In experienced hands it can be prevented with proper
positioning of staple line
• Recurrence ( 8% ) - With the addition of Mucopexy, this can be brought down to < 1%
