The Rafaelo Procedure is a relatively new, yet highly successful, treatment that utilises radio frequency technology to significantly reduce, and in most cases totally eliminate, the common symptoms of haemorrhoids (also known as piles). Similar radio frequency technology has been used successfully for many years to treat varicose veins, and this has now been adapted and modified for the specialised treatment of haemorrhoids. Becoming increasingly popular amongst Doctors and patients alike, The Rafaelo Procedure is now available across the UK at a range of private clinics and hospitals.
There are clear benefits of The Rafaelo Procedure over and beyond the traditional treatment options. The procedure is a minimally-invasive, day case procedure, which typically takes no longer than 15 minutes to perform. It can be carried out using only local anaesthetic (with or without sedation) or under general anaesthetic, if preferred. Most patients report very little pain or discomfort, during or post procedure, and are able to resume their regular daily activities very soon after treatment.
