Hemorrhoid Treatments and Surgery - Magdi Alexander MD - Magdi Alexander MD - General Surgeon in Pasadena California

Stand Up to Hemorrhoid Pain and Get Relief.

Our goal is to permanently remove the pain and problem as quickly as possible using the least invasive treatment option. Stop being embarrassed about your hemorrhoid problem; get relief from the pain and uncomfortable lifestyle you’ve been living.

Hemorrhoids are bulging blood vessels in or near the rectum or anus and it’s something that most people face in their lifetime. But that doesn’t mean you have to endure the pain it can cause. Hemorrhoids are so common and can create frustration doing regular everyday activities such as going to the bathroom.

They may develop inside the anus (but can protrude outside) or develop outside the anus and be covered by skin. Although hemorrhoids can be painful, they rarely cause long-term health problems. Hemorrhoids sometimes result in blood in the stool, but this can also occur with colon or rectal cancer, so being checked out by your doctor is also important.

Heat Energy Therapy

Most patients feel very little, if any pain during HET™ Treatment. Most people don’t realize their options for treatment and that surgery is not the only option available! HET™ can gently treat internal hemorrhoids to help you return to your normal life without the pain and discomfort. This hemorrhoid treatment is so simple and effective that most patients are able to return to work and their daily routine shortly after leaving our office.


THD uses Doppler guidance to locate the end branches of the arteries leading to the hemorrhoid. Once the arteries are located, absorbable sutures are used to tie-off the blood flow. No more blood can flow into the hemorrhoid and the vein remains intact so blood can still flow out. The entire procedure is completed without excision of tissue.

Rubber Band Ligation

The most common treatment for internal hemorrhoids. However, if symptoms persist after three or four treatments, surgery should be considered. Consult Doctor Alexander to see what’s right for you.


Performed in the office by Dr. Alexander, sclerotherapy is a method to shrink hemorrhoids using a solution of 5% phenol and olive oil. The procedure causes minimal discomfort and patients may return to regular activity the same day.
