The IMED Levante Hospital, in collaboration with Dr. Mª Auxiliadora Amador, launched the Non-Surgical Techniques Unit. This innovative unit performs state-of-the-art treatments to solve without surgery some of the most common pathologies in middle-aged and elderly men and women, such as varicose veins, anal fissures and hemorrhoids.
According to Dr. Mª Auxiliadora, “The great advantage of these non-invasive techniques is that they are resolved immediately, the patient recovers faster and we also offer a 6-month follow-up to ensure that the problem does not reoccur. “.
For varicose vein problems, the venous sclerosis technique is used, which is currently the most effective. “This treatment eliminates all types of varicose veins on an outpatient basis. After the procedure, the patient resumes his normal life, without any restrictions,” according to Dr. Amador.
In the case of anal fissures, these are treated with a new treatment with the technique of neurolysis. The technique involves injecting an alcohol solution diluted with a local anesthetic into the area, producing what is called chemical neurolysis. The doctor explains: “At IMED, we use a unique and proprietary treatment (Poliproc©) to resolve anal fissures, which effectively and quickly treats all anal fissures on an outpatient basis, without requiring surgery. The patient can instantly resume his daily life and defecate without discomfort”. With this technique, painful symptoms disappear immediately and healing is achieved within a few days.
To solve the problems of hemorrhoids, we have two techniques. On the one hand, we use the so-called “banding” technique or rubber band ligation which consists of applying a rubber band to the base of the hemorrhoid to conceal it in order to prevent the entry of blood. This ischemia causes inflammation and necrosis, followed by scarring that fixes the hemorrhoid, which is reduced in size, to the wall of the anal canal. On the other hand, sclerotherapy consists of an injection into the hemorrhoid of a sclerosing substance (polidocanol) which causes local inflammation followed by fibrosis which destroys the veins and capillaries that exist inside the hemorrhoid. hemorrhoid and makes the hemorrhoid fibrous, causing it to re-adhere to the wall of the anal canal which reduces the prolapse. In some cases, this may require several separate sessions of 1 to 2 weeks.
“Both solutions offer immediate results and the application of one or the other will depend on the needs of each patient,” says Dr. Amador.
