Hemorrhoidectomy is a recommended procedure if your hemorrhoids cause severe pain or bleeding. Hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the hemorrhoids from and around the anus. Your doctor may give you anesthesia before the operation. A surgeon makes an incision around the hemorrhoids and remove the hemorrhoids or staples them or puts a rubber band around them to cut off the blood supply. A chemical solution can be injected or a laser may be introduced to cause the hemorrhoids to shrink.
