1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

For internal hemorrhoids (not for visible external hemorrhoids) a rubber band ligation as an office procedure is a common procedure.
Other options such as surgical suture, staple ligation, and infra-red therapy have been used. Rubber band ligation is painless and successful for the right type of hemorrhoid conditions.
