What are the benefits of having Transanal Haemorrhoid Dearterialisation?

One of the main benefits from a Transanal Haemorrhoid Dearterialisation is that it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, which uses fine instruments to position the blood-supplying arteries of the haemorrhoid above the dentate line (area without sensory nerves) therefore you should not feel any of the stitches during or after the procedure.

Before considering surgery, it is important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with Transanal Haemorrhoid Dearterialisation (THD).

This procedure may also be called Haemorrhoid Ligation, Haemorrhoidal Artery Ligation or Doppler guided Ligation.
