Piles to Smiles: Comprehensive Center for Diagnosis and Advanced Treatment of Piles



Hemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, affect millions of people worldwide, causing discomfort, pain, and bleeding.

Despite being a common condition, many individuals suffer in silence due to embarrassment or lack of awareness about effective treatments.

“Piles to Smiles” Proctology Clinic @LAKEVIEW HOSPITAL is dedicated to changing this narrative by offering comprehensive, advanced diagnostic and treatment services, including LASER treatment for piles.

Understanding Piles

Piles are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. They can be internal or external, with varying degrees of severity. Factors contributing to piles include chronic constipation, straining during bowel movements, prolonged sitting, pregnancy, obesity, and a low-fiber diet. Understanding the underlying causes is crucial for effective treatment and long-term management.

Comprehensive Diagnosis – Everything that causes problems at the BOTTOM is not due to PILES.

At “Piles to Smiles,” we prioritize accurate diagnosis as the foundation of effective treatment. Our diagnostic process includes:

  1. Detailed Medical History Understanding the patient’s symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history to identify contributing factors.
  2. Physical Examination -A thorough examination to determine the type and severity of piles.
  3. Anoscopy, Video Proctoscopy, Sigmoidoscopy & Colonoscopy- Utilizing advanced tools to inspect the anal canal and rectum for a precise diagnosis as well as to rule out cancer & colitis.

Advanced Treatment Options

“Piles to Smiles” offers a range of advanced treatment options including  LASER, tailored to the severity and type of piles. NOT ALL PILES NEED SURGERY:

  1. Lifestyle and Dietary Changes: Initial treatment often includes recommendations for a high-fiber diet, increased fluid intake, and regular exercise to alleviate symptoms and prevent recurrence.
  2. Medications: Topical treatments, such as creams and ointments, can provide relief from pain and inflammation. Oral medications may also be prescribed to manage symptoms.
  3. Minimally Invasive Procedures: – Banding: Rubber band ligation to cut off blood supply to the piles, causing them to shrink. – Sclerotherapy: Injection of a solution to shrink piles & LASER therapy
  4. Surgical Interventions: Hemorrhoidectomy: Surgical removal of large or severe piles.

Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy: A less invasive surgery that repositions and staples prolapsed hemorrhoids.
