If standard treatments — warm baths, stool softeners, increased fiber intake and over-the-counter or prescription hemorrhoid creams and suppositories — do not work, an infrared coagulator can shrink hemorrhoids. The treatment works 75% of the time, takes just five minutes, requires no anesthesia and has little recovery time.
