Abstract: Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a high-energy light that is used to safely cut or burn the affected tissue during surgical procedures. The laser techniques are advanced and safer than before; they are scar-free, bloodless and less painful with fewer complications . In our study, Assignment to two cohorts although not randomized, not based on duration or severity of symptoms. Operative procedures. Pre-operative work up and post-operative management were standardized. Patients couldn’t come to OPD were communicated over telephone. Patients with VAS score < 4 were discharged on oral high fiber diet, with oral medication on POD1. The safety and efficacy of LHP is more than open hemorrhoidectomy accompanied with a low incidence of post-operative complications and it is more effective in third-degree than fourth degree piles. LHP technique is superior to conventional open surgical hemorrhoidectomy. With less Postoperative pain in comparison with surgical maneuver. Operative time is significantly shorter in laser procedure.
