Rubber band ligation, also referred to as “hemorrhoid banding,” is a common procedure performed at The Hemorrhoids Centers of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach). This quick outpatient procedure cuts the blood flow of the internal hemorrhoid by placing a rubber band around the base of the hemorrhoid. This results in shrinkage of the inflamed tissue inside the rectum, causing the hemorrhoid to eventually fall off on its own within a few days.

  • Rubber band ligation is the most widely used treatment for internal hemorrhoids
  • Rubber band ligation is considered to be one of the most effective nonsurgical treatment for internal hemorrhoids over the long term
  • This hemorrhoid removal procedure causes less pain and has a shorter recovery period than surgical hemorrhoidectomy

Please note: This treatment is not performed on external hemorrhoids. Rubber band ligation cannot be performed by the doctor if there is not enough tissue to pull into the banding device.

I’ll tell you this, a few weeks ago I was going through hell, I mean one of the worst pains in my life to the point where I didn’t know what to do with myself. Went back and forth to the hospital and they didn’t know what it was. I finally went on the internet and saw that Dr. Maz Ghodsian had a lot of good reviews so the first thing I did was to get on the phone and set up an appointment. After I saw and spoke to the Doctor, I knew he was the one that was going to take this pain away. I ended up having a surgery and right after the surgery, I felt like a new man. After so many prayers, finally it was done and I was pain free. Dr. Maz is extremely professional and a good hearted Doctor. I was blessed to find him. Thank you so much Dr. Maz Ghodsian, you are the best! ~ YELP
