Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy

PPH or stapled haemorrhoidectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat haemorrhoids.

What is a stapled haemorrhoidectomy?

PPH or stapled haemorrhoidectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat haemorrhoids as an alternative to standard haemorrhoidectomy surgery. Its main advantage is that there is considerably less post-operative discomfort than after a conventional surgical haemorrhoidectomy. A stapling technique is used to pull the swollen blood vessels back into their normal position and then remove excess haemorrhoidal tissue. The staples used in the PPH procedure are made of titanium and are tiny.

The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes to perform, and is usually done as a day case; meaning that you will usually be able to go home within a few hours of the surgery. The procedure is normally performed under general anaesthetic (i.e. you are asleep), although regional anaesthetic is also an option.

What does the recovery involve?

You will usually be prescribed a mild laxative to take for a week or so after the surgery, and as there may be a little post-operative pain, some pain killers to go home with. Most people however are able to resume normal activities within a few days of having surgery.
