  • What is stapler surgery?

    Stapler surgery or stapled hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical technique for treating piles. It uses a stapling device to remove piles tissues. Doctors recommend this treatment procedure for patients whose piles have prolapsed or become abnormally large or who have shown little or no improvement with nonsurgical treatment.  

    Under stapler surgery, the pile’s tissue is lifted into a ring of tissues with sutures, and a stapler removes it, cutting off blood flow to the tissue. As a result, patients who undergo stapler surgery for piles typically experience less pain than those who undergo traditional piles surgery. They also experience less bleeding, itching, and swelling around the anus and inside the rectum. In addition, stapler surgery may reduce the chance of incontinence after the procedure.

    Diagnosis And Procedure Of Stapler Surgery For Piles


    If you are experiencing symptoms of piles like extreme itching and pain around the anus, uncomfortable lump, or swelling near the anus, you may need stapler surgery to treat it. To determine that, the surgeon will perform a variety of diagnostic tests like:

    Physical exam – Your doctor will inspect the area around the anus for-

    • lumps or swelling near the anus
    • internal piles that have fallen through the anal opening, known as prolapse
    • external piles with a blood clot in a vein
    • leakage of stool or mucus

    Digital rectal exam – Your doctor can perform a digital rectal exam to-

    • analyze the tone of the muscles in the anus
    • check for tenderness, blood, and lumps or masses

    Anoscopy– An anoscopy is used to diagnose piles. For an anoscopy, the doctor uses a small tube known as an anoscope to view the lining of the rectum and anus. The doctor examines the tissues lining your rectum and anus to look for signals of lower digestive tract problems and swelling or hard lumps around the anus. A related procedure called high-resolution anoscopy uses a particular magnifying device called a colposcope and an anoscope to view the anus and rectum area.

    Rigid proctosigmoidoscopy – Rigid proctosigmoidoscopy is similar to an anoscopy, except that here the doctor uses a proctoscope to view and inspect the lining of your rectum and lower colon


    In stapler surgery, piles are removed, and a part of the anal region is stapled. This surgery is performed under a locoregional or general anesthetic and takes around 30 minutes.

    • In this procedure, a circular hollow tube is inserted into the anal canal. A long woven suture is placed circumferentially within the anal canal and above the piles through this tube. 
    • A stapler is a 33mm disposable instrument with a circular stapling device attached to it. The stapler is placed through the hollow tube, and the ends of the suture are pulled. 
    • The doctor drags the suture, which then draws the expanded piles tissues into the jaws of the stapler. 
    • Then, the piles cushions are pulled back into their normal position within the anal canal, and the stapler is ejected. It cuts off the circumferential ring of expanded piles tissues which is trapped in the stapler, and at the same time, staples together the upper and lower edges of the cut tissue.
    • Stapler piles surgery stops the blood supply to the piles causing them to shrink.

    Recover after stapler surgery for piles

    Though stapler surgery is a relatively new surgical method, it has quickly become one of the most popular treatments for piles surgery. This is because stapler surgery has better results and early recovery in piles treatment.

    Due to less postoperative pain and high satisfaction among patients, this surgical procedure has been widely accepted by most surgeons. Recovery from stapler surgery is linked to fewer complications and an easy and quick return to work. In addition, recovery from this surgery is quicker because the procedure removes the abnormally expanded piles supporting tissues that have led the pile to prolapse downward, not the piles themselves.

    The recovery period for stapler surgery is associated with less pain compared to traditional piles surgery. Furthermore, recovery is also reported to be more comfortable because of decreased postoperative incidence of urinary retention, bleeding, constipation, fecal impaction, and prolonged wound healing.

Piles adversely affect the quality of life depending on the degree of piles and their symptoms.
