Rubber band ligation of internal hemorrhoids

Performed in an outpatient surgical setting, many patients find this to be a painless procedure. It is for hemorrhoids of mild to moderate severity and usually takes a few minutes to complete.  Using the endoscope, a small rubber band is deployed onto the hemorrhoid.   Thus depleting all  blood supply to the hemorrhoid.  The hemorrhoid shrivels and is passed out naturally with a bowel movement.
