Another NHS Trust to offer The Rafaelo Procedure

We are delighted to announce the addition of Northern General Hospital, part of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation, to the growing list of Rafaelo providers. Led by Colorectal Consultant, Mr A Harikrishnan FRCS, Rafaelo is now being offered routinely to those suffering from haemorrhoids who might otherwise have had to undergo far more invasive treatment options.

UKSkin is the latest private clinic to offer The Rafaelo Procedure

UKSkin, a privately owned cosmetic and surgical clinic in Birmingham, has just launched The Rafaelo Procedure from their state of the art King’s Heath site. Administered by two of the regions leading colorectal surgeons, Mr Nigel Suggett FRCS and Mr Amit Patel FRCS, the clinic will offer regular treatment dates. We are delighted to welcome UKSkin to our growing list of Rafaelo clinics and we look forward to supporting them.

New treatment for Fistulas about to be launched!

We are soon to launch Fistura, a brand new radio frequency based treatment to deal with Fistulas, a very common problem which up until now has required invasive surgery. Shortly, all surgeons offering Rafaelo will also be able to offer Fistura from their clinics. The website will soon go live!

Clinics to resume Rafaelo Treatments in June

LATEST NEWS – We are delighted to announce that Rafaelo Procedures are slowly being re-introduced. Initially, two private clinics in London will be offering Rafaelo from the beginning of June and we expect others to follow suit shortly thereafter. We will update you when more clinics start to resume their treatment offerings, although we anticipate that Rafaelo in the NHS might still be a way off. If you are interested in having The Rafaelo Procedure, please complete one of our on-line forms with your contact details and we will respond with available dates and venues. Stay safe and well.

Government indicates that elective surgery might start up again very soon

With two months of zero elective surgery being carried out throughout the UK, indications today are that some hospitals are starting to re-introduce elective surgery. That, in time, will include Haemorrhoid treatment. Of course the more urgent cases involving cancers etc will be the first to be introduced but some surgeons are already starting to offer less urgent procedures. We anticipate that many people have been suffering their haemorrhoids during this lock-down period – their diet may have changed, their exercise pattern may have changed and indeed more people may have been spending more time sitting around and that in itself might have impacted on their haemorrhoidal symptoms.

As we anticipate a rush in the pubs and shops as they begin to open up over time, so we would anticipate a rush for people to get treated those conditions they have been suffering.

We at Rafaelo will be formulating a waiting list for those keen on treatment and, as soon as the surgeons re-open their doors, we will feed them with those names who have expressed interest during this period, on a first come first served basis. So, if you are likely to be seeking treatment once we get going again, why not register your interest with us now (by completing one of our online contact forms) and we will ensure that your name is put forward to your local surgeon when the time comes.

Keep safe and keep well.
