Hemorrhoids (swollen veins in the lower rectum) can be uncomfortable, even painful. Some people may have bleeding associated with their hemorrhoids. Home remedies and over-the-counter medications can ease discomfort, but in some cases, surgical intervention may be the most effective treatment option. Hemorrhoidectomies are common, and the team at Surgical Professionals has many years of experience performing these surgical procedures for our clients in the region.

To schedule a consultation for hemorrhoidectomies in Arizona, contact Surgical Professionals at 480-892-2456. Our surgeons perform this procedure at most major hospitals in Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, and Queen Creek.

Who Needs Hemorrhoidectomies?

First, it’s helpful to know how hemorrhoids develop. The rectum is the continuation of the sigmoid colon that connects to your anus. Within this section of the lower gastrointestinal tract, feces are stored before release through the anal canal. Increased pressure within the rectum, strained bowel movements, chronic diarrhea, constipation, or merely sitting for long periods of time can lead to the formation of hemorrhoids, either inside or outside the rectum.

Hemorrhoidectomies are the most effective treatment option for both internal and external hemorrhoids. Your physician may recommend a hemorrhoidectomy if it:

  • Causes persistent pain
  • Protrudes
  • Returns following the failure of minimally invasive procedures

Types of Hemorrhoidectomies

  • There are many types of surgeries performed on the lower rectum, including:
  • Closed hemorrhoidectomy
  • Open hemorrhoidectomy
  • Rubber band ligation

Risks of Hemorrhoidectomies

Candidates who undergo hemorrhoidectomies can depend on our team to recommend the safest, most effective solutions possible. While hemorrhoidectomies have a very low rate of complications, individuals should know and understand the potential risks before undergoing the procedure. For hemorrhoidectomies, the risks include but are not limited to:

  • Anal bleeding
  • Incontinence which in rare cases can be permanent
  • Stricture/stenosis, which is narrowing due to excess scarring
  • Infection
  • Fecal impaction
  • Urinary retention

We strive to minimize the surgical risks associated with every procedure we perform. When necessary, we may seek to obtain medical clearance from other specialists such as cardiologists or pulmonologists to address any potential surgical risks further if you have other significant medical problems.

Please consult with your surgeon about any questions or concerns you have regarding hemorrhoidectomies.

Recovering from Hemorrhoidectomies

Immediately after the operation, you will spend a short period of time within the post-op area. This allows the anesthetic to wear off. You will be able to go home shortly after this.

The rectum is highly sensitive, and it is normally tender and painful following the procedure. For most patients, the full recovery period lasts about two weeks, but this can extend to three to six weeks. During this period, you may need to make changes to your diet. These recommendations will help make it easier to defecate and urinate while minimizing the risk of causing internal injuries, ripping stitches, etc.

We recommend that you try to ensure you are not constipated prior to having surgery. Please note that narcotic pain medications can worsen any constipation so we encourage you to keep use of these to a minimum while balancing your pain control.

Dr Gray did an excellent job twice when my father had hernias. One was an emergency situation, and the other was not. Both times, Dr Gray showed expertise in diagnosing the problem, performing the surgery, setting our expectations and follow through after the procedure. I definitely would recommend him for your surgical procedures.

My entire experience with Doctor Gray was of the utmost professionalism courtesy kindness by all of his staff included. Doctor Gray was dynamic in his experience and his knowledge. In my experience I thought I was taken care very well which gave me a great level of confidence in my experience through this surgery.

Brett Barker /

This Doctor saved my life and I have nothing but admiration for him. Dr. Brian Ju was my surgeon for the removal of my gall bladder 2 weeks ago. He is the most phenomenal and adept surgeon I’ve ever experienced. He even coordinated with the anesthesiologists to ensure that the anesthesia had anti-nausea elements because of my history with nausea!

Sherri Smith /

I am not from the valley but was here to visit my son and his family. Dr. Gray and his staff were amazing in getting me in and actually scheduling my surgery the day after I had my first visit. The office staff – especially Alex is absolutely the BEST. Everyone is extremely efficient and at the same time – very caring. I can not thank Dr. Gray and his staff more! Very grateful and I wish I could package what you have going on and take it home with me! THANK YOU!!!!

Kathi in Pueblo, Colorado /

I was fortunate have Dr. Ju for two surgeries. He was an excellent surgeon for one, and his bed side manor was outstanding. I felt very confident with Dr. Ju and his staff. If I were to have any procedures or surgeries done in the future, I would schedule them with Dr. Ju and the excellent staff at Surgical Professionals Inc. Thank you again to a wonderful professional staff.
