Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy (HET)
What is Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy using the HET Bipolar System?
The HET Bipolar System is a proprietary technology that allows for the gentle, simple and efficient non-surgical treatment of symptomatic low grade hemorrhoids in a single procedure. The HET Bipolar system treats hemorrhoids in the area where the human body doesn’t feel much pain, using low power energy. Ask your Gastroenterology Associates of Florida provider about how hemorrhoid treatment above the “pain line” could result in a procedure with minimal discomfort.
How is the HET Bipolar System different than other Hemorrhoid treatment options?
Treatment with the HET Bipolar System is a fast therapy that typically takes only seconds to complete.
Many hemorrhoid treatment options often require multiple procedures to treat the hemorrhoids, including banding and infrared coagulation procedures. In contrast, the HET Bipolar System can be used to treat multiple hemorrhoids in a single therapy session.
The HET Bipolar system enables a more efficient treatment of grades I and II internal hemorrhoids compared to banding because it typically only needs one session.
Is the HET Bipolar System right for treating my Hemorrhoids?
While both internal and external hemorrhoids are generically called “hemorrhoids”, these conditions are different – they cause differend symptoms and are treated differently.
Your Gastroenterology Associates of Florida doctor can tell you whether your hemorrhoid symptoms are internal or external. Grades I and II internal hemorrhoids are considered mild-to-moderate and can be treated with non-surgical methods using the HET system.
Is Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy Painful?
In one 23 patient study, 100% of patients surveyed reported no pain or discomfort from treatment of internal hemorrhoids when the HET Bipolar System was used.
Ask your Gastroenterology Associates physician about the potential for pain or discomfort with hemorrhoid treatment.
