There are many techniques for performing a hemorrhoidectomy. The author introduces the submucosal hemorrhoidal artery ligation technique and the shortening suture technique. In the author's expericence, the submucosal hemorrhoidal artery ligation technique reduces not only the secondary bleeding rate but also the hemorrhoid recurrence rate after a hemorrhoidectomy. The shortening suture technique reduces the postoperative anal stricture rate by folding skin into the anal canal and prevents a skin tag after a hemorrhoidectomy.
