What is Infrared Coagulation?
Infrared Coagulation (IRC) has become the world’s leading treatment for hemorrhoids. A small probe is placed above the hemorroid and a few short bursts of infrared light are applied. The infrared light quicklly coagulates the vessels that provide the hemorrhoids with blood, causing the hemorrhoids to shirink and recede. Shrinkage of the hemorrhoidal tissue may take a few weeks.
