Re: Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery in Miami or Phoenix

There are other doctors out there that may be doing this type of surgery... Have you looked on line under Hemorrhoid Laser surgery and see what comes up? I have heard there is one in PA and also on Long Island, ny... Hope you can find someone to help you. My son suffered for 12 years and he is 99.9% back to his old self.. Bless you.

Re: Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery in Miami or Phoenix

Jackforce1, where do you live? I have found many doctors throughout the united states. I have even now found one in my hometown of Baltimore but they only do external. That was my problem. I have had internal and external hemorrhoids done with laser. I had next to no pain every time!

Hi Randadawn,

I live in Springfield, VA. Do you have the name and phone number for the doctor in PA? Were you satisfied with that doctor in PA? Do you think Phoenix is better than the one in PA? Do you have the name and phone number for the doctor in Baltimore?
Thanks in advance for your info

Re: Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery in Miami or Phoenix

Sorry for delay in answering you..look up wholistic Health center in pennsylvania. It really depends on your situation and how many hemorrhoids you have. AZ will do them all at once. 1 at a time was good for me because I can't have much down time since I have a almost 2 year old at home. I did however think the doctor was great. I can't believe we live so close to DC an no docs do this!

I live in Eastern Kentucky. I'm not sure what's going on exactly, but I know that I also have a yeast overgrowth that is contributing to my itching and burning.

I would stick with banding and see how it goes. Surgery should always be a last resort. You normally only have to have 3 or 4 bands anyway with not much down time or complications. My recommendation from experience is to only have them do one band at a time. 2 at a time will produce quicker results, but much more painful. I have only considered surgery because all else has failed and I have put up with it for years. Good luck! I understand how you feel.

I had the laser surgery in Phx about 5 years ago. I have had 2 recurrences of thrombosed hemmorrhoids since then which needed to be extracted. Only 2 in 5 years I guess is good but do be prepared for the most excruciating pain after the laser procedure! The pain after the surgery was 10x worse (no exageration) for a few days, and the worst part is I was not alerted to this fact! It was writhing on the floor pain but maybe it was worth it. I might elect something else next time around.

Re: Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery in Miami or Phoenix

I too am debating the 'regular' surgery or laser for some external thrombosed hemorrhoids. I am SO confused and SO scared after reading some of the borrow stories - especially on the 'regular' surgery. Has anyone had both forms of treatment?

Re: Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery in Miami or Phoenix

Hi TNDav,

Was the hospital terrible? are you going to consider for that hospital again if you have another laser surgery if the doctor won't do the surgery at the different hospital? I am considering to go down there so I want to have some information about that hospital.
Thanks much in advance for your help,
JQN
