Hemorrhoid pain is no joke, and surgery can make it worse. Embolization offers a gentler yet effective alternative.

Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization

Hemorrhoid artery embolization is a safe, minimally invasive treatment that shrinks hemorrhoids by blocking their blood supply. Our board-certified interventional radiologist at Minimally Invasive Surgical Solutions in San Jose performs this procedure using tiny tools and imaging.

Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization is:

  • Safe
  • No Incision
  • Minimal Pain
  • No Scarring
  • No General Anesthesia
  • Outpatient Procedure
  • Two-Hour Recovery Time
  • Go Home the Same Day
  • Cost Less
Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels that form either externally (around the anus) or internally (in the lower rectum).


Traditionally, hemorrhoids are linked to chronic constipation, straining during bowel movements, and prolonged sitting on the toilet. These factors disrupt blood flow, causing it to pool and enlarge the vessels. Hemorrhoids are also common during pregnancy, as the enlarging uterus presses on the veins.


When other treatments fail, hemorrhoid artery embolization offers a painless and minimally invasive alternative to surgery. Consult with an interventional radiologist to see if this procedure is right for you.
