The answer

This is a type of surgical operation that has been found to be effective in some people for the treatment of haemorrhoids or piles. It is an operation that requires a general anaesthetic, so it is usually reserved for when all other available treatments have failed. The NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) has approved the procedure for the NHS, so it should be available for patients if they need it. Talk to your doctor to see if you qualify for a referral, or if there are any other treatments you should try first.
