Hemorrhoids refer to a condition where the veins in the lower rectum and around the anus get swollen, dilated and inflamed which may result in pain, itching, irritation, burning and sometimes bleeding.
Hemorrhoids are nothing to feel ashamed about. Nearly 75% of all Americans have hemorrhoids at some time in their lives. Dr. Shahzad is a highly specialized and experienced gastroenterologist with a focus on the treatment of minimally invasive internal hemorrhoid treament. He is the founder of Advanced Gastroenterology Center and has locations in Spring/The Woodlands/Conroe/ Humble/Kingwood that is dedicated to treating gastrointestinal problems. He has helped hundreds of patients in the greater Houston area alleviate their hemorrhoid discomfort and pain with the help of hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation treatment.
Hemorrhoid banding is fast, reliable, and painless and works for more than 95% of hemorrhoid patients. The procedure is performed within the office and is significantly cheaper than other alternatives. It’s important to consult an expert gastroenterologist like Dr. Shahzad if you feel anal pain or discomfort because as a hemorrhoid grows, the number of non-surgical options decreases.
