Hemorrhoid Banding Back to Procedures

What is Hemorrhoid Banding?

Rubber band ligation, or hemorrhoid banding, is a procedure in which a gastroenterologist wraps a tight rubber band around a hemorrhoid. This cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing it to wither and fall off approximately one week later.
