eXroid – Say Goodbye to Haemorrhoids with This Revolutionary Treatment

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, can be a painful and uncomfortable condition that affects many individuals. If you’re suffering from haemorrhoids, there’s good news! Midlands Colorectal offers a revolutionary treatment, eXroid, which has been changing the lives of countless patients.

How Does eXroid Treatment Work?

eXroid treatment is a simple yet highly effective solution for haemorrhoids. It utilizes electrotherapy, a technique that has been clinically researched for over 150 years. Advances in medical technology have made this treatment mainstream and readily available at Midlands Colorectal.

Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how eXroid works:

  1. Consultation: Your eXroid treatment journey begins with a consultation with a Dr Peravali. They will carefully assess your condition and determine the appropriate course of action.
  2. Probe Placement: During the procedure, the consultant will gently place a probe on the base of the haemorrhoid(s). Importantly, there is no cutting, stitching, or application of heat during this process. This means no need for anesthesia, making the treatment exceptionally low-risk.
  3. Electrotherapy: The device used generates a small current, typically up to 16mAmp. While you may feel a slight discomfort, it is generally not painful. This current stimulates a chemical reaction within the haemorrhoid, causing an excess of alkali to accumulate. This excess alkali effectively seals off the feeding varicose blood vessel, starving the haemorrhoid of its blood supply.
  4. Shrinking: As a result of the treatment, the haemorrhoid begins to shrink. In some cases, multiple treatments may be needed to fully seal off the blood vessels and make the haemorrhoid disappear.
  5. Post-Treatment: The effects of eXroid treatment continue to work over the following four weeks. Midlands Colorectal’s aftercare team will stay in touch to monitor symptom changes and assess the need for any further treatments.

Is the Procedure Painful?

One of the key advantages of eXroid treatment is that it is generally not associated with significant pain. However, it’s essential to understand the different sensations you might experience during the procedure:

  • Probe Insertion: Some patients may find the insertion of the anoscope, a hollow plastic tube used to access the base of internal haemorrhoids, to be uncomfortable. There are usually very few nerves at this point, so pain is not commonly experienced. Instead, patients often describe a dull aching sensation. The treating doctor can adjust the current to make the treatment more comfortable and effective.
  • Anal Canal Spasm: Occasionally, the muscular anal canal can go into spasm during the procedure, similar to a cramp. Relaxation techniques, guided by the doctor, can help alleviate this discomfort. For most patients, the treatment is not painful. However, approximately 10% of patients may find it more uncomfortable or painful. Rest assured, eXroid practitioners have various techniques to manage any pain or discomfort during the treatment.

The Benefits of eXroid Haemorrhoid Treatment

eXroid treatment offers numerous benefits that have made it a preferred choice for patients at Midlands Colorectal:

  1. Comprehensive Treatment: eXroid can effectively treat all four grades of haemorrhoids, making it the only treatment capable of doing so.
  2. Low Risk: The procedure is low risk and requires no time off work. Patients can walk in and walk out without the need for bowel prep or anesthesia.
  3. Convenience: eXroid treatment is highly convenient. It is performed in conjunction with a consultation and examination, typically within a one-hour appointment.

Aftercare Service

At Midlands Colorectal, patient care extends beyond the procedure itself. Every patient receives aftercare guidance, including a follow-up email and phone call four weeks after treatment. The patient services team will review your consultant’s notes, discuss your progress, and address any questions or concerns you may have. This personalized approach ensures that you receive the best possible care.

Follow-Up Treatments

While many patients experience complete relief from their haemorrhoids after a single treatment, some may require follow-up sessions. The need for additional treatments depends on factors such as the size and number of piles. Midlands Colorectal’s patient services team can provide guidance on follow-up treatments during your consultation.

Understanding the Need for Further Treatments

eXroid’s unique patient pathway allows for the documentation of changes in haemorrhoids and symptoms with each treatment. This has shed light on why some patients may require additional treatments. Your consultant will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

Returning to Everyday Activities

For most patients, returning to everyday activities is possible immediately after eXroid treatment. Some individuals may require a short recovery period, while a small percentage may need one or more days to fully recover.

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

During your consultation, your consultant will provide insights into what to expect from the treatment. While one treatment is often sufficient for many patients, those with larger piles or more than three haemorrhoids may require additional sessions. The exact number of treatments varies from patient to patient and even from pile to pile.
