If the blood pools within and external haemorrhoid then you will be in severe pain due to the swelling and inflammation.

If you are suffering from a painful external haemorrhoid, that just won’t disappear, surgical haemorrhoid treatment may be the most effective option.
Here at The Haemorrhoid Centre, we offer the new innovative surgery, the THD procedure. Why is this haemorrhoid treatment more effective than others? Firstly, postoperative complications are kept to the minimum due to the non-invasive nature of this surgery. This is because the haemorrhoidal tissue isn’t cut, only the arteries supplying the blood to the vessel are. This also means that most patients can resume their normal routine within 24 – 48 hours.
