In brief: Colorectal Surgeon

A colorectal surgeon or a proctologist is the best to diagnose and treat hemorrhoids.
Many treatments can be done in the office such as band ligation.

In brief: Colorectal Surgeon

A colorectal or general surgeon typically treat hemorrhoids after failure of conservative medical therapy that includes topical ointments and suppositories and increasing the intake of fiber and fluids to eliminate constipation.
Hemorrhoidectomy is usually a last resort effort when pain and/or bleeding is refractive to medical therapy.
