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.


PPH In-Depth

PPH Procedure for Advanced Hemorrhoids Involves Less Pain and a Quicker Recovery

In clinical trials the Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) has been shown to be a less painful procedure for removal of advanced hemorrhoids when compared to conventional hemorrhoidectomy.

PPH is a technique that reduces the prolapse (enlargement) of hemorrhoidal tissue. With the PPH procedure, patients experience less pain and recover faster than patients who undergo conventional hemorrhoidectomy procedures.

Since the PPH procedure was first introduced in Italy in 1997, it has become a common procedure around the world for the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids. The procedure was first introduced in the United States in October 2001.
