Breaking the tabooty

We’ve come a long way. Topics of discussion that would never have made their way into mainstream media, or come up during a summer barbecue with friends, are now commonplace in our conversations.

Brooke Shields may have started the trend years ago when she openly discussed her battle with post-partum depression. Angelina Jolie made headlines around the world when she opted for a double mastectomy. And Ben Stiller recently revealed he’d had prostate cancer.

Yet there’s one thing celebrities and even soccer moms are still hesitant to discuss openly—hemorrhoids.

The taboo surrounding chatting about what’s happening at the back door is as alive today as it was in the ‘60s, when nobody shared details about their bodies.
I’d like to break that tabooty and bring the topic of hemorrhoids out into the open. No one will blame you for developing hemorrhoids. You aren’t the only one who has them and you do have options to treat them.

I offer two, non-surgical methods to treat hemorrhoids. One reduces the blood flow that feeds the hemorrhoids, improving inflammation and causing them to shrink. The other is better suited to remove larger hemorrhoids. Both take just a few seconds to do, and since they are performed in an area with no nerve endings they can be administered right in the comfort of my office without anesthesia.

There is virtually no pain, no prep needed, there are no major restrictions, and you don’t have to take time off of work. Our consultations are always free of charge and our procedures are covered by insurance.

You’re hemorrhoids don’t have to be a dirty little secret. Let’s take some time to talk about them—and get you the relief you deserve.
