Let’s Talk About Something Nobody Wants To Discuss: Hemorrhoids
Advanced treatment: rubber band ligation
If at-home treatment does not get rid of your hemorrhoids, then your doctor can use several methods to try to shrink them. One method is called rubber band ligation, during which your doctor puts a rubber band around the hemorrhoid to cut off its circulation, causing it to shrink. While this may sound like something you can do yourself, it is critical that only a doctor perform this procedure.
