South Jersey Endoscopy Center of Woodbury Now Offers the HET System, a Non-Surgical Technology That Treats All Symptomatic Hemorrhoids

)-- South Jersey Endoscopy Center of Woodbury Now Offers the HET System, a Non-Surgical Technology that Treats All Symptomatic Hemorrhoids in a Single, Simple Procedure with a Rapid and Comfortable Recovery.
After over three years of suffering from enlarged and bleeding hemorrhoids, and months of trying over the counter and prescription medications, Magnolia, NJ resident Ryan Winstel, 39, opted for a gentle, non-surgical treatment of hemorrhoids with the HET System. The HET System is the only non-surgical technology that allows the doctor to treat all hemorrhoids in a single procedure. It is a quick and simple procedure, associated with a rapid recovery, no or minimal pain after the procedure, and excellent results.
Seventy five percent of all people have symptomatic hemorrhoids at some point in their lives and 50% of people after age 50 suffer from chronic, progressively worsening, hemorrhoidal problems. Until recently, Ryan and 15 million other Americans who suffer from bleeding and discomfort caused by enlarged internal hemorrhoids, had only painful treatment options. These options typically require multiple treatments over weeks or months, and are known to have potentially significant complications, such as excruciating pain, fainting, infection, bleeding, and difficulty urinating.
The HET System, recently adopted by South Jersey Endoscopy Center, typically allows the doctor to quickly and effectively remove or shrink all symptomatic internal hemorrhoids in a single treatment session.
Ryan was back to work as a plumber immediately following the treatment, thanks to the HET System. After treatment, his hemorrhoid symptoms were completely resolved and he returned to his work and his normal, active lifestyle. The HET System is the only non-surgical technology which allows safe and effective treatment of all symptomatic hemorrhoids in a single procedure, with no or minimal pain. Drs. Howard Kroop, Mitchell I. Conn, Jeffrey A. Abrams, Michael C. DiMarino, Nicholas T. Orfanidis, and Aarati B. Malliah at South Jersey Endoscopy Center of Woodbury have been offering this new treatment approach for patients who suffer from enlarged, symptomatic hemorrhoids for several months now, with excellent clinical outcomes.
“My father suffered from hemorrhoids and had the rubber banding procedure. He was in horrible pain and discomfort after the treatment,” said Ryan, “I had no pain, no bleeding, and was completely symptom free after being treated with the HET System.”
The HET System is a small, sterile, disposable cannula that applies a combination of gentle tissue compression and mild heat, to remove or significantly shrink internal hemorrhoids.
“This new treatment is having a dramatic impact on patients who suffer from hemorrhoids,” said Michael C. DiMarino, M.D., from the South Jersey Endoscopy Center. “Following treatment, we see a remarkable improvement in the patient’s symptoms and an impressive reduction in the size of the treated hemorrhoids.”
“Historically, hemorrhoid sufferers have been treated with rubber bands, where the doctor tries to reduce the blood flow by directly strangling each hemorrhoid,” said Dr. DiMarino, one of the first gastroenterologists in South Jersey to use this breakthrough technology. “The problem is that many patients cannot tolerate the pain of constant pressure on the hemorrhoid and the discomfort of what feels like they are sitting on a marble after the treatment. Since most patients have multiple enlarged symptomatic hemorrhoids, we need to repeat the procedure several times over a few months to try to better manage the painful recovery.”
Dr. DiMarino said most patients could be treated with only one 2-minute procedure with no or minimal post-treatment pain. Most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
