We are delighted to welcome Mr Chetan Bhan FRCS to our growing list of surgeons offering The Rafaelo Procedure. Last week, Mr Bhan carried out his first Rafaelo Procedure at The Wellington Hospital in central London, the patient reportedly leaving the hospital, symptom and pain free.
In the past week, both WPA and Cigna have added The Rafaelo Procedure to their schedule of approved and reimbursed treatments. Now, we have BUPA, WPA and Cigna on board – hopefully the others will follow shortly.
Just a quick thank you to Mohammad Eddama and his team at UCLH for organising our 4th UCLH Rafaelo Teaching Session today. Some 20 enthusiastic colorectal surgeons travelled from all over the UK to attend the session but unfortunately, Mr Richard Cohen FRCS, who usually hosts the event, was unable to attend through illness. We all wish him a speedy recovery. Nonetheless the day went well and hopefully we will add several more sites to our growing list of venues offering Rafaelo.
