New Non-Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment Now Available

Hemorrhoids can mask symptoms of colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.  Until recently,  surgery was frequently recommended to treat hemorrhoids. GI Associates  now provides a treatment that is clinically proven and utilizes the proprietary and patented CRH O’Regan SystemTM, which is performed in the office.   Dr. Christopher A. Young, Dr. Veronika Gagovic, Dr. Benjamin M. Schneeberger,  Dr. James A. Schlais and Dr. Eric A. Johnson perform this  non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment in our office.
