Hemorrhoid Banding - NEW!

This is a painless, 5-minute and nonsurgical solution to aggravating hemorrhoids. Mild hemorrhoids tend to heal on their own. But if you’ve tried everything, including creams, warm baths and a high-fiber diet, and nothing has helped, then it’s time to look for a permanent solution. Hemorrhoid banding targets the source of your discomfort to provide permanent relief.

The procedure only takes minutes, and you can return immediately to work. Feel free to view this informational video at your own risk.
