Hemorrhoidal Removal-the Keesey Technique

Believe it or not as long ago as 1860 there were reports being written discussing an effective, non-surgical treatment for hemorrhoidal
disease using low levels of direct current. By Using the same type of current that powers a flashlight, doctors discovered an amazing way to
shrink and heal hemorrhoids. In the mid 1930s, Wilbur E. Keesey, M.D. wrote a definitive article in the Archives of Physical Therapy.
Thereafter, the technique became known as the Keesey method.

Now, the methods Dr. Keesey found so impressive have been further refined. By using an instrument called the Ultroid, Dr. Dent is able to
utilize modern state electronics to provide better results than have ever been available. Dr. Dent has used the Ultroid System for 15 years
and his patients have found it to be a satisfactory and welcome alternative to surgical intervention.

This simple technique is not only less expensive than standard hemorrhoid surgery but affords many additional advantages such as:

Studies have demonstrated that its success is comparable to that of surgery but without the attended inconveniences and risks.

A micro current is applied directly for 8 to 12 minutes to one hemorrhoidal area at each treatment. All symptoms of hemorrhoids, including
bleeding, protrusion, pain and itching may be successfully resolved.
