Laser treatment for piles is a non-invasive surgical procedure that uses high-intensity laser beams to shrink the piles (the swollen veins in the rectum that cause severe discomfort and bleeding). Piles are caused by chronic constipation and straining at stools. While lifestyle modifications and dietary changes are a major part of the piles' treatment, you may need medical intervention in severe cases. Most treatment options are invasive and painful, with a long recovery process. Laser treatment allows you to get rid of your piles in a painless, quick procedure with a fast recovery.
Piles are a common condition that affects millions of people around the world. Piles are swollen veins formed inside and outside your anus and rectum. They appear as small, discolored lumpy structures. In severe cases, you can see them hanging from your anus. Piles cause extreme pain, discomfort, itching, and burning during and after stools. Blood streaks on the stools are also a common symptom of people having piles.
Piles are prominent and visible after a bowel movement. Most of the time, they can be pushed back inside. If they cannot be pushed back, you need to visit your doctor and get them treated.
Your surgeon may recommend non-surgical treatment methods such as sclerotherapy, banding treatment, and coagulation, or surgical treatment options such as hemorrhoidectomy, depending on the size of the piles. Laser treatment for piles is among the most preferred forms of treatment among surgeons and patients. This is a quick procedure that is completed in under 30 minutes. The surgeon uses laser beams to shrink the piles. It is done as an outpatient procedure.

The surgery lasts for about 30 minutes. The duration may vary depending on the severity of your condition.
You will experience pain and bleeding during stools for 7 to 10 days after the surgery. This is normal. However, contact your surgeon immediately if you pass large clots, or have heavy bleeding, severe pain, and fever (signs of infection).
Dietary restrictions after any form of treatment for piles come with a single aim- To avoid constipation and ensure the smooth passage of stools. For this purpose, you have to -
Include a lot of fiber-containing fruits and veggies in your diet. This helps to add bulk to the stool and also ensures smooth excretion.
Drink an adequate amount of water to avoid constipation.
Avoid processed and refined food like candies, pizzas, and burgers. Opt for home-cooked food free from too much oil, spice, and salt.
