Hemorrhoids can be classified into two categories: internal and external.


Internal hemorrhoids occur within the anus and often result in frequent bleeding. Generally, internal hemorrhoids do not exhibit symptoms other than bleeding, with the exception of occasional itching. They are more likely to protrude during bowel movements, resembling external hemorrhoids, but subsequently retract to their original position.


External hemorrhoids occur around the opening of the anus and frequently protrude outside. In advanced cases, thrombosis can develop, leading to intense pain. This pain may persist for 2-3 days, while the thrombosis itself can last for several weeks.


To determine the appropriate course of action, the physician must assess the situation and rule out other conditions with similar symptoms, such as fissures, fistulas, and abscesses. Particular attention should be given to individuals over the age of 50, as the presence of blood in the stool can be misleading and conceal colorectal cancer, the second most common cancer worldwide.

For years, we have been utilizing the PeterLord (Grigoriadis method) as our primary approach to managing this condition. This method is regarded as highly effective and has successfully resolved the issue for thousands of patients over the past 25 years.

The procedure is minimally invasive and targets the underlying problem, which is the hypertensive sphincters and their persistent spasms. It is a straightforward and painless operation with consistently favorable outcomes. After a brief surgical intervention, patients can swiftly resume their daily routine without any trauma to the anus, necessitating lifestyle changes, or experiencing unwanted side effects, stitches, pain, or other post-operative complications. They can eat and drive immediately after the procedure.

The PeterLord method (Grigoriadis method) stands out as the only approach that directly addresses and effectively treats the root cause of hemorrhoids, rather than merely alleviating the symptoms.
