This week on Body Talk, in association with Spire Hartswood Hospital, Jules Bottazzi talked to Mr Mrinal Saharay, one of the consultant general surgeons at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood. As well as specialising in general keyhole surgery and thyroid gland surgery, he has a particular interest in bowel surgery and spoke to Jules about the sometimes embarrassing and painful condition of haemorrhoids, otherwise known as piles, and some of the latest treatments that are available to help sufferers.

If you suspect you may be suffering from haemorrhoids, do go to see your GP in the first instance – it’s a common complaint and, as we discovered tonight, treatment is often surprisingly easy.
