Our Gastroenterology Services
Infrared Coagulation (IRC)
This non-surgical treatment is fast, well tolerated, and remarkably complication-free. A small probe is placed above the hemorrhoid and a few short bursts of infrared light are applied. The infrared light quickly coagulates the vessels that provide the hemorrhoid with blood, causing the hemorrhoid to shrink and recede. Shrinkage of the hemorrhoidal tissue may take a few weeks. The procedure is performed by Board certified Gastroenterologists.
Infrared Coagulation (IRC) Treatment for Anal Warts
Infrared Coagulation was initially developed for the treatment of external anal warts, hemorrhoids, and tattoo removal. Treatment involves applying a probe that transmits heat (infrared) energy directly to the lesions. The heat does not burn but rather destroys the tissue. It is performed in our fully accredited office with minimal discomfort both during and after the procedure.
