Your bottom can’t be rested in a sling. It is an area of your body that must be used everyday and cause a great deal of suffering. Therefore, you must take action. But know this, anal conditions are extremely common.
Using a variety of techniques, many of the symptoms associated with Haemorrhoids now have modern techiques to fix these problems.
If a surgical option is required, surgery can be booked on the day of your appointment.
If you are speaking with your health fund about the HALRAR procedure the following item numbers will be useful: 32139, 32120 & 51300. The Surgeon will generally charge AMA Rates. Out of pocket expenses to the patient with respect to the hospital will depend on the health fund and the patient’s level of cover.
After your surgery, you will be followed up by a nurse, be seen at a 4 week post-op clinic (bulk billed) and a copy of your surgical report will be sent to your regular GP for your historical medical file.
