Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

For piles (hemorrhoids) the treatment depends on its grade which is assessed well by the surgeon on clinical examination.

For grade one - those which bleed without coming out (prolapse) you need only medicines.

For grade two or above you need surgery.

The standard surgery nowadays is stapler hemorrhoidectomy. This is painless and gives best results.

Earlier days open surgery was done but is painful.

LASER treatment is almost not done nowadays as it can cause local complications including narrowing of the anal canal. It is highly unsafe and not a good option. Hope your query is cleared.
