Haemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove haemorrhoids, a group of veins in the anus region that have become swollen due to several causes including pregnancy, low-fiber diet, obesity, and anal intercourse, among others. Although haemorrhoids are not considered dangerous or life-threatening, medical professionals recommend their surgical removal as they can cause a significant amount of pain and prevent the patient from performing many activities.
More and more patients from Indonesia now elect to have surgical procedures such as Haemorrhoidectomy done outside of their country to take advantage of latest surgical techniques, most advanced surgical instruments, and the services offered by highly trained surgeon.
