Cryotherapy for Hemorrhoids Treatment| Cryosurgery for Hemorrhoid

Through medical intervention, doctors use liquid nitrogen as the cryogenic agent for freezing hemorrhoids. However, for an ‘at home’ treatment that is easy to administer, cryotherapy devices can be very effective in reducing inflammation and soothing pain and soreness. These devices are made from medically approved surgical plastic and are approximately the size of a small finger. They contain a scientifically formulated coolant which is capable of dispensing a controlled degree of cold directly to the external and internal rectal tissue. This cooling action causes the blood vessels in the effected area to shrink, which in turn soothes the swollen tissue, helping to reduce bleeding, pain and itching.

There are also many practical advantages to this type of therapy. These include:

  • Drug-free & non-toxic
  • Provides immediate relief
  • Can be used during pregnancy
  • Can be used with other medications
  • Applicator can be washed and reused
