Say Goodbye to Hemorrhoids!

Posted on: 09/30/2012

Local Colon & Rectal Specialists Dr Khawaja Azimuddin & Dr. Tal Raphaeli are now offering the new Minimally Invasive THD (Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization) procedure in Houston. This technique uses Doppler ultrasound to accurately localize the arteries that feed hemorrhoids. Once localized, the arteries can be simply ligated under mild sedation in the operating room. Recovery is very rapid and patients avoid the long and painful recovery often associated with hemorrhoidectomy.

When it comes to the treatment of Hemorrhoids Dr. Azimuddin has literally written the book! He is the Editor of "Surgical Treatment of Hemorrhoids, 2nd Edition.” This book, published by Springer®, is used as a reference book for the treatment of Hemorrhoids by Colon & Rectal Surgeons throughout the world and in the residency programs in the US.
