Your Trusted Double - Board Certified Gastroenterologist
Our banding procedure works by cutting off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid. This causes the hemorrhoid to shrink and fall off, typically within 1-2 days. You probably won’t even notice when this happens or be able to spot the rubber band in the toilet. Once the hemorrhoid is gone, the wound usually heals in 1-2 weeks.
During the first 24 hours, you may experience a feeling of fullness or a dull ache in the rectum. This can be relieved with an over-the-counter pain medication. However, a remarkable 99.8% of patients treated by our practitioners have no post-procedure pain.
Thanks to design improvements, our procedure has a ten-fold reduction in complications compared to traditional banding. Our instruments are smaller, affording greater comfort and better visibility for physicians. Unlike other devices, they are single use and 100% disposable.

The facility is small enough you don’t feel like a number and big enough you know they have what they need in case of an emergency. Dr Taormina is easy to talk to and answers all questions. Explains everything well, easy to understand. The group of nurses are also great!
