IOWA NEWSPAPER ASSOCIATION
Allen R. Kaufman, M.D., Gastroenterology Removed the Need for Hemorrhoid Surgery with a Unique and Painless Office Procedure Performed in Less Than a Minute
New, Patented Procedure Now Available in Clive, Iowa
Clive, IA – Hemorrhoids can mask symptoms of colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, and until now, painful surgery was frequently recommended to treat hemorrhoids. Allen R. Kaufman, M.D. Gastroenterology is now providing a treatment protocol that is clinically proven and utilizes the proprietary and patented CRH O’Regan System ™, which is effective, safe and painless.
The CRH O’Regan System ™ is only available to consumers through specially trained and licensed medical providers. This highly effective (99.1%), minimally invasive procedure is performed in the office in less than 60 seconds. This method offers a significant advance in the rubber band ligation technique for effective outpatient treatment of hemorrhoids. Unlike other techniques
that use a metal clamp to grasp the hemorrhoid during banding, the
CRH O’Regan System ™ uses a smaller and gentler suction device to minimize discomfort and complications. “I am pleased to offer a procedure that provides the patient with symptom relief and a minimum level of discomfort. This method is fast and has virtually no downtime for patients,” said Dr. Allen R. Kaufman.
While other methods rely on reusable instrumentation, the patented
CRH O’Regan System ™ instrument is 100% disposable and single use. This eliminates the risk of transferring infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B and C from patient to patient due to inadequately sterilized instrumentation. The CRH-O’Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System is the only treatment that requires no pre- or post pain medication, virtually no recovery time and is covered by insurance.
