An effective alternative to traditional
We wanted to tell you all about eXroid, and why we have brought electrotherapy as a treatment for haemorrhoids to the UK.
Previously known as Ultroid UK, eXroid has been helping thousands of haemorrhoid sufferers for years. With some of our patients kindly sharing their experience of the eXroid electrotherapy treatment by writing in to us to tell us their stories, we take pride in the fact that we have helped change so many people’s lives.
Talking about haemorrhoids can be very difficult and we appreciate it can be a sensitive matter. Our experienced haemorrhoid advisers are on hand to help you decide whether you require a consultation with one of our doctors and possibly a treatment. Our staff are always very discreet and will do their very best to help you decide upon the best care option for you.
Experts in safe, effective and gentle treatment of piles
Electrotherapy is a fast, effective and safe treatment for piles which has recently introduced to the UK by eXroid. NICE has published constructive guidance regarding electrotherapy treatment and the most recently reported figures show that 155,000 treatments have already been carried out, safely, worldwide. Here at eXroid, we want to share this cost-effective, convenient treatment with as many sufferers as possible.
The majority of eXroid patients say that this straightforward procedure incurs minimal or no discomfort. A gentle current is applied to the base of each haemorrhoid for up to ten minutes and during treatment the piles shrink, and if not completely gone, they can continue to shrink for up to 4 weeks or more following treatment.
Sedation and anaesthetic are not required and there’s no mandatory recovery time (not even one day). Most patients who’ve shared their experience with us say they are able to walk straight out of the clinic and return immediately to their normal activities.

Electrotherapy is one of the gentlest treatments available for piles – It causes minimal or no discomfort, has an excellent safety record and is as effective as other procedures or operations. Half of patients are cleared of their piles by one treatment, and 80% by two.
What the experts say about eXroid electrotherapy treatment
Mr Paul Mackey Consultant Colorectal Surgeon
“I have now had the opportunity to treat over 100 patients suffering with haemorrhoids with the eXroid electrotherapy treatment. Admittedly I was somewhat sceptical as to what could realistically be achieved by such a relatively straightforward and practically painless treatment, but the feedback from patients has been absolutely amazing. We are not far from eXroid becoming universally the first-line treatment for haemorrhoids, and banishing such ineffective treatments such as banding to history”
