Hemorrhoidal artery embolization (HAE) in Chicago and Indiana

However, using the latest minimally invasive techniques, NG Vascular can permanently treat chronic hemorrhoids and alleviate symptoms. Hemorrhoidal artery embolization (HAE) is performed by an interventional radiologist who inserts a tiny catheter into an artery in your upper thigh and then uses x-ray imaging to guide it through the body’s blood vessels to the rectal artery. Special coils are inserted into the artery to cut off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing it to shrink. The success rate of this procedure is greater than 90%.1

Unlike surgery, there is no general anesthesia required for the procedure, no incisions and no scarring. You are able to return home the same day and resume your normal activities.
