Hemorrhoids are nothing but inflamed blood vessels in the lower rectum of a human body. They can be cured with medicines but the process is slower and the patient has to go through the pain and frequent bleeding. Thus, Piles or Hemorrhoid surgery is recommended to the patients for an earlier cure.
Across India, the cost of piles surgery varies from place to place and from hospital to hospital. For example:
- In a government hospital in India, Hemorrhoid surgery is done free of cost. After the surgery, the patient stays to a post-operative ward for a maximum of two days.
- In private hospitals, the cost of the surgery varies according to the procedure done. Across a city, a simple open hemorrhoidectomy will cost 15k to 20k Indian rupees.
- In a corporate hospital, a stapled hemorrhoidectomy will cost 30 to 35k due to the expensive devices used during the surgery.
- In rural areas, the surgery may cost around 12–15 k.
For a normal Piles treatment in any private hospital, Rs.1300 is required for registration, consultation from the respective doctors and examination by proctoscope. A total of Rs.10K is required during the course of the surgery for medication and injections for sclerotherapy or banding. Rs.75K is needed for a simple hemorrhoidectomy in a General Ward. An expense of Rs.20K is however needed separately for the stapler in a Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy. In this way, a patient suffering from Piles has to make an expenditure of Rs. 95K on his/ her hemorrhoid surgery.
Talking about the big cities of India, cost of a Piles surgery varies respectively:
Mumbai 41.3k- 1 lakh
Chennai 60.3K- 1.1 lakh
New Delhi 53.5k- 1 lakh
Kolkata 30k- 70k
Hyderabad 65.5k- 1.4 lakh
Bangalore 55.5K- 1.4 lakh
Pune 68.7k – 1.4 lakh
After a hemorrhoid surgery, a patient will be able to lead a normal life within 2-3 weeks. Maintaining a proper diet that includes exercise, intake of good amount of water and proper medication will help the patient cure faster after the surgery.
