Kothari Pioneers Novel Internal Hemorrhoid Treatment

August 18, 2016
Truptesh Kothari, MD, MS is the only physician in upstate New York offering Hemorrhoid Energy Therapy (HET), a non-surgical option for treating Grade I and II internal hemorrhoids. The novel treatment can treat multiple hemorrhoids in one visit with minimal or no pain and may not always require sedation. Patients can typically resume normal activities within a day of treatment.  While early studies indicate high success rates, research continues to track outcomes of the three-year-old procedure, including a prospective trial currently under way at URMC. For more information, contact the Division at (585) 275-4711.
