Laser Haemorrhoidoplasty is the preferred treatment for Grade 2 and early stages of Grade 3 Piles. This procedure is done under short general anaesthesia and takes about 20 minutes. Through the natural anal opening, laser energy is applied using a special radially emitting fibre. The controlled emission of laser energy causes vaporization leading the haemorrhoidal mass to shrink.
