Abstract

Abstract The methods of treating hemorrhoids have been remarkably similar in principle throughout the history of medicine. The surgical procedures employed by Hippocrates included the ligature operation, excision and cautery. These procedures have been carried through the ages with only minor alterations or variations but are the basis for all operations for hemorrhoids in use today. The fact that hemorrhoids are frequently mentioned in historical writings emphasizes the influence this affliction has had upon man throughout the ages.
