Hemorrhoidolysis/Galvanic Electrotherapy is a treatment for hemorrhoids[1] that is based on putting pressure with electrode on each hemorrhoid.[2] This causes micro-shock that helps hemorrhoid to get back to norm. More than one hemorrhoid may be treated with each visit - the treatment lasts only a few minutes. The average hemorrhoid case will require only one treatment per hemorrhoid.[3]
