About Alex P. Pavidapha, MD
What is the Hemorrhoid Centers at Gastro Health Falls Church?
The Hemorrhoid Centers at Gastro Health Falls Church is a joint venture between Hemorrhoid Centers and Gastro Health. The location houses the doctors’ office and surgery center where an interventional radiologist performs hemorrhoid embolization procedures.
Hemorrhoid embolization is an interventional radiology treatment for internal hemorrhoids that offers long-lasting relief from rectal bleeding. Hemorrhoids form when abnormal connections are made between arteries and veins in the rectum. Embolization works by blocking these abnormal blood vessel connections, which eliminates the bleeding.
An Interventional Radiologist performs this minimally invasive procedure under local anesthesia and moderate sedation in patients with internal hemorrhoids of grade one, two or three.
