LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ — Hemorrhoids can mask symptoms of colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, and until now, painful surgery was frequently recommended to treat hemorrhoids. At The Center for Colorectal Health, the goal is to provide focused medical care for the treatment of hemorrhoids, anal fissures and the early detection of colorectal cancer. The treatment protocol is clinically proven utilizing the proprietary and patented CRH-O’Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System, which is safe and painless.
The CRH-O’Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System is only available in the United States through the Center for Colorectal Health. This highly effective (99.9%), minimally invasive procedure is performed in the office and only takes 30 to 60 seconds. This method offers a significant advance in the rubber band ligation technique for effective outpatient treatment of hemorrhoids. Unlike other techniques that use a metal clamp to grasp the hemorrhoid during banding, the CRH-O’Regan procedure uses a smaller and gentler suction device to minimize discomfort and complications.
“This method is faster, more accurate and has virtually no downtime for patients,” said Dr. Houshang Hakhamimi, medical director of the Los Angeles center. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to perform a procedure that provides the patient with the finest pain-free care.”
While other methods rely on re-usuable instrumentation, the patented CRH-O’Regan instruments are 100% disposable and single use. This eliminates the risk of transferring infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B and C from patient to patient due to inadequately sterilized instrumentation. The CRH-O’ Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System in the only treatment that requires no pre-or post pain medication, virtually no recovery time and is covered by insurance.
The Center for Colorectal Health, the only healthcare provider in the U.S. offering the CRH-O’Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System, recently opened a new center in Atlanta, Georgia. The Atlanta location increases the number of center locations to four, joining Chicago, and the recently opened centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco. New centers are expected in Las Vegas and other major cities around the country in the near future. Every center is directed by a board-certified surgeon with extensive colorectal experience.
In addition to the center expansion, the company has launched a consumer Web site (http://www.crhcenter.com/) that provides easy-to-understand, in-depth information about hemorrhoids, anal fissures, and colon cancer screening. There is information about the condition, symptoms and treatment methods used by each of the national center locations and the site enables users to schedule a consultation, visit a message board to talk to other patients, and locate the center closest to their zip code.
