There are different types of hemorrhoids, therefore there are different treatments, and not all of them mean surgery. The correct diagnosis, followed by the appropriate treatment, is very effective, as long as the patient understands that, once you have hemorrhoids, you are going to have to practice some common sense measures, in order to prevent reoccurence or flair-ups. A surgeon trained in colorectal surgery, such as I am, should be able to aswer all your questions and recommend the best treatment.
In most cases, formal surgery for hemorrhoids should last a lifetime, but if your underlying causes for hemorrhoids are not addressed, you could have recurrence or other complications. Some procedures such as banding and sclerosing of hemorrhoids do have higher incidents of recurrence. Best to discuss with your surgeon. 

Extremely successful.
4 out of 5 success rate if you have a traditional hemorrhoid excision.
