Say goodbye to piles with eXroid® electrotherapy treatment for haemorrhoids in the comfort of your own home.

How does the eXroid® electrotherapy treatment for haemorrhoids work?

eXroid® electrotherapy is a fast, safe & effective treatment for internal haemorrhoids (piles). The procedure is simple and usually painless. A gentle current is applied to the base of the haemorrhoid for up to 10 minutes. Usually there is more than one haemorrhoid to be treated. Up to 3 can be treated at one time.

The device generates a small current of up to 16mAmp, which feels only slightly uncomfortable, though not painful, which stimulates a chemical reaction in the haemorrhoid, creating an excess of alkali which accumulates to seal off the feeding varicose blood vessel.

This results in the haemorrhoid being starved of its blood supply and it shrinks accordingly. Sometimes it may take more than one treatment to complete the process where the blood vessels are fully sealed and the haemorrhoid completely disappears.

The effect of the treatment continues to work over the following 4 weeks, at which point our aftercare team will be in touch to discuss symptom changes and see if any further treatments are required.
