Raleigh, NC, April 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- HD Treatment Center (http://hdtreatmentcenter.com), which offers a painless and permanent treatment option for patients with hemorrhoidal disease through a direct micro current technology cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, has announced details of its revolutionary 10-minute procedure that no other physicians in the Triangle are providing. During treatment, the physician gently applies a micro direct current to the blood vessel feeding into the hemorrhoid in an area where there are no pain fibers, a process which does not require the use of anesthesia and does not cut the patient’s skin. The micro current prompts a natural reaction within the hemorrhoid that shrinks the flow of the blood vessel, relieving symptoms and eliminates the hemorrhoid by natural absorption by the body. The non-surgical, non-invasive procedure is virtually pain-free and requires no anesthesia, no special preparation (no food or drinks to consume or avoid prior to treatment), no cutting or incision and no downtime – patients may return to their normal activities immediately after it is completed. Patients frequently notice significant relief immediately following treatment and over the next seven to 10 days. Depending on the extent of the hemorrhoidal disease, oftentimes only a single treatment is required.
This treatment avoids the potential complications and often painful recovery involved in hemorrhoid surgery as well as surpasses the effectiveness of over-the-counter and prescription topical solutions such as wipes, creams, pads and suppositories, which provide only temporary relief for patients suffering from hemorrhoids. For surgery, treatments such as hemorrhoidectomies and the Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (also known as the PPH procedure or stapled hemorrhoidectomy) can cause severe pain and bleeding, entail a lengthy recovery time and have possible significant medical complications. Minor surgery such as rubber band ligation has a high recurrence rate of symptoms, requires a long recovery time, and can cause severe pain and bleeding. Other outpatient procedures such as laser surgery and infrared photocoagulation (IRC) can produce a moderate amount of pain, including burning with treatment and bleeding, and it cannot be used to treat larger, more symptomatic hemorrhoids.
As for wipes, creams, pads and suppositories, they only mask the discomfort caused by hemorrhoid disease temporarily. There is no full resolution provided, which requires patients to continue using them only to control their condition. They are not a long-term solution, whereas HD Treatment Center offers a permanent improvement.

“Unlike other medical procedures for hemorrhoid disease that inconvenience patients or fail to eliminate all symptoms, what we offer at HD Treatment Center requires no more than 10 minutes of a patient’s time to relieve the situation permanently in most cases,” said Dr. Larry Fusco, lead physician at HD Treatment Center. “Individuals undergoing this outpatient process needs no special preparation or recovery period, and insurance covers the procedure. It is the most effective treatment for hemorrhoids I have seen during my 30 years of professional practice, and I recommend it to patients who qualify following a consultation with our office.”
