Select radical techniques depends on the stage of the disease, the existing equipment, etc. Sparing therapies used in place of a scalpel all kinds of physical and chemical effects: light, heat, radio waves, latex ring, sclerosing agents, etc. The idea of these methods one: many ways to stop the blood flow in the node, whereby one atrophies.

Infrared photocoagulation— The impact on the hemorrhoid heat. Coagulant (thin fiber) is applied to the hemorrhoidal node in the 3-5 spots. For a few seconds there is a burn diameter of 2-3 mm. Node is no longer in the coming days. The method is fairly painless. After the intervention, patients may begin to work on the same day or the next day.
