eXroid provides a fast and effective electrotherapy treatment for internal piles. Recently introduced in the UK, electrotherapy has a track record of over 150,000 treatments worldwide and over 2,500 in the UK. The procedure is simple and usually painless. A gentle current is applied to the base of the haemorrhoid, causing it to shrink as the treatment is ongoing. There is no need for any needles or sharp instruments. Many patients feel instant relief from the moment they stand up and the pile can continue to shrink for a week or more. There is no need for sedation or anaesthetic, and no recovery time so you can usually get back to your normal activities straightaway.
The eXroid treatment will be offered at Harley Street (London), Canterbury, Wellington, Solihull, Whitstable, Abergele, Dewsbury, Cambridge, Manchester, Halifax, Elland, Bromsgrove, Cardiff and new clinics are scheduled to open in the near future. Book a Clinic Appointment
Electrotherapy is a highly effective treatment for piles Half of our patients were cleared of their haemorrhoid after one treatment session, and over 80% after two. The number of treatments you need largely depends on how many piles you have and how big they are.
eXroid electrotherapy treatment is recommended Electrotherapy for the treatment of piles has been positively reviewed by NICE.
eXroid is safe eXroid is safe and does not require any anaesthetic. All equipment and single-use treatment kits will carry the CE Mark.
eXroid also causes least discomfort eXroid does not require regional or general anaesthetic. Other treatments can cause significant levels of pain, often severe. When compared in clinical trials, pain and discomfort have been consistently shown to be low for electrotherapy treatments, especially when compared to surgery. eXroid is one of the gentlest treatments available for piles.
All examinations are performed by a doctor All consultations include an examination by an electrotherapy treatment specialist, who is a UK GMC-registered doctor. If you are concerned about bleeding and the risk of cancer, an eXroid appointment can be the first step in providing the reassurance you need about the commonest cause for rectal bleeding - piles. There is no obligation to have your piles treated with eXroid after this examination and the eXroid specialist will organise further tests to investigate any bleeding you have had if he or she feels this is necessary.
Minimal recovery time You can usually go back to work on the same day and treatment takes thirty minutes or less. There is no bowel prep or enema required beforehand, and no anaesthetic to recover from. You will notice the piles shrinking for a week or longer and your symptoms will normally diminish.
eXroid respects your privacy Most people find it embarrassing to talk about piles. Many will not even mention it to their own partner. The eXroid service is specifically set up to respect your privacy and give you complete control over your medical records.
It's not just our patients that are happy with eXroid. Doctors also recommend the treatment:
Mr Paul Mackey BM, MD, FRCS Consultant Colorectal Surgeon I have now had the opportunity to treat over 100 patients suffering with haemorrhoids with eXroid. Admittedly I was somewhat skeptical as to what could realistically be achieved by such a relatively straightforward and practically painless treatment, but the feedback from patients has been absolutely amazing. In terms of treating the symptoms of prolapse and bleeding, over 90% of patients have achieved resolution of symptoms. Some patients have had trouble for decades, and although they may have needed several treatments, resolution of symptoms can usually be satisfactorily achieved. We are not far from eXroid becoming universally the first-line treatment for haemorrhoids, and banishing such ineffective treatments such as banding to history.
