Hemorrhoid surgery is a surgical process of removing hemorrhoids, swollen blood vessels in the anal canal. During the procedure, patients are given general or spinal anesthesia so that they feel no pain. Hemorrhoids can be managed by eating a high fiber diet, drinking water, and using stool softeners. There are two types of hemorrhoids: Internal and external. External hemorrhoids develop painful blood clots whereas internal hemorrhoids drop though the rectum. In maximum cases, external or prolapsed hemorrhoids can become infected and may require surgery.
