Hemorrhoidal banding anatomy Anatomy of hemorrhoidal banding


Hemorrhoidal banding is a relatively new procedure to treat bleeding internal hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins that occur in the end of the rectum just above the anal canal.

Bleeding is often precipitated by constipation, straining to pass hard stool, or heavy lifting.


During the procedure, small rubber bands are placed on the enlarged veins. This eliminates blood flow to the hemorrhoid, causing it to dry up and fall off after several days.

Hemorrhoidal banding is typically safe and well tolerated, however the procedure may occasionally be complicated by local pain or bleeding.


US Digestive Health is now offering the CRH O’Regan System®. A simple, painless, and effective way to treat hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are nothing to be embarrassed about – in fact, about 50% of the population will suffer from them by the age of 50.

For many, ointments and creams will only mask symptoms to provide temporary relief. They do not address the root of the problem that is causing the pain, itching, bleeding, and overall discomfort.

If you’re serious about getting rid of hemorrhoids once and for all, it’s time to consider banding hemorrhoids.

The CRH O’Regan System®

The CRH O’Regan System® offers patients a painless, proven effective solution to the problems associated with hemorrhoids through a unique take on a procedure called hemorrhoid banding, or rubber band ligation.

Much less invasive than a surgical hemorrhoidectomy, hemorrhoid banding with the CRH O’Regan System®, is a simple treatment that can be performed in just minutes with little to no discomfort. There isn’t any prep or sedation and most patients are even able to return to work the same day.

How it Works

Gentle suction is used to place a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoid in an area where there aren’t any nerve endings. This only takes about 60 seconds. After a few days, the hemorrhoid will begin to shrink and fall off – you probably won’t even notice when it does!
