Hemorrhoid Centers of America are the largest and most successful hemorrhoid clinics in the country devoted to helping our patients get the relief they deserve without surgery. Our non-surgical treatment, featuring the CRH O’Regan Ligation System and our custom hemorrhoid compounds, will change the way hemorrhoids are treated forever. Each year HCA helps thousands of patients avoid painful and unnecessary surgery. Many of our patients had been told that surgery was their only option and they had been given ineffective creams or suppositories. At HCA both internal and external hemorrhoids can be treated and fissures successfully healed! You can drive yourself to the appointment and most of the time return to work the same day.
