Core tip: We treated 96 patients with circumferential mixed hemorrhoids using Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoidectomy with anal cushion suspension and partial internal sphincter resection, and compared their clinical outcomes with those undergoing traditional hemorrhoidectomy. The differences are significant in favor of the modified Milligan-Morgan technique in terms of time to wound healing, anal stenosis, wound pain, edema and other complications. This approach can be widely applied in clinical practice.
