The Colon & Rectal Clinic of Ft. Lauderdale

One reason people do not talk about hemorrhoid problems with their doctor is because they anticipate a painful, traditional hemorrhoid surgery.

A minimally invasive surgical approach now available in the United States, called Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH), may help patients recover from hemorrhoid surgery faster with less pain when compared to conventional hemorrhoidectomy procedures.

Before and After PPH & Rectal Prolapse Repair

The Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) procedure reduces the prolapsed mucosa and restores anal tissue to its original anatomical position. This hemorrhoid operation results in less pain than traditional procedures because it is performed above the dentate, or “pain” line inside the anal canal. Traditional procedures are performed below the dentate line, affecting many sensitive nerve endings. PPH surgery patients have been shown to experience less pain and a faster recovery (i.e. return to normal activities, such as work) than patients who undergo a traditional repair operation.
