“I work in a field where I can truly make a significant and meaningful impact on people’s daily lives. There is no reason to live with hemorrhoids.” —Dr. David Gutman, owner

Hemorrhoids can occur for a number of different reasons. Some of the triggers are:

  • Food that your body isn’t accustomed to
  • Consuming too much beer
  • Excessive sitting
  • Delaying bowel movements
  • Stress

The first signs of hemorrhoids are often ignored, but, over time, they continue to get worse. If you have been experiencing any of the following symptoms over a prolonged period of time, chances are good that you have hemorrhoids:

• Straining with bowel movements
• Diarrhea
• Heavy lifting
• Excessive coughing
• Pregnancy
• Certain foods
• Stress

Treatment Options

  • Infrared Coagulation: Dr. Gutman uses a high-intensity infrared light, similar to a laser, to reduce the blood flow, which reduces inflammation and helps tether the hemorrhoidal tissue higher in the anal canal so that it doesn’t drop down.
  • Suction Ligation: This method allows Dr. Gutman to apply gentle suction to the redundant tissue and easily place an elastic band to remove the hemorrhoid.

Both of these treatments take only a few seconds to do, and since they are performed in an area with no nerve endings, they can be administered right in the comfort of Dr. Gutman’s office without anesthesia. There is virtually no pain, no prep needed, there are no major restrictions, and you don’t have to take time off of work.

Hemorrhoid surgery can cost thousands of dollars, but treatment at Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists is a fraction of that. Because there is no surgical fee, no anesthesia, no ancillary testing, and no room fee, hemorrhoid treatment at Advanced Hemorrhoid Specialists is more affordable than you think.

Dr. Gutman’s procedures are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans, which means the out-of-pocket expense is often just the cost of the co-pay.
