Do you know?

Transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization is typically an outpatient procedure. The entire operation usually takes less than a half hour, and most patients are discharged from the hospital to go home the same day. The immediate recovery period requires only a few days, although it can take several months for the treatment area to fully heal and return to normal.

Most patients experience very little discomfort after a transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization. There is no tissue removed during the procedure, and the entire operation is performed above the dentate line. Both of these factors lead to far less discomfort for most patients than with traditional hemorrhoidectomy.

People who undergo THD for hemorrhoids generally feel well enough to return to work within 3 or 4 days of the procedure. It is important to continue eating a high-fiber diet and drinking plenty of water every day in the weeks and months that follow the procedure.
