Another satisfied patient…

Here is an anonymised letter to the GP of a patient of Mr Barsoum, Consultant Surgeon, who offers Rafaelo from Spire Parkway…

“I reviewed this pleasant gentleman in my clinic today 4 weeks following his Rafaelo procedure for recurrent haemorrhoids.  Mr XXXX is absolutely delighted with the outcome, he never took a single painkiller and he said that he wished he had met me and undergone this procedure before as he had had previous very bad experiences with a haemorrhoidectomy, banding and various procedures in the past.  He has had no bleeding, no itching or any other complication and today he was so well that he did not wish to be examined.  I have advised him strongly to avoid constipation and have discharged him back to your care.”

First list at The Duchy, Truro

We are delighted that our first list at Ramsay’s Duchy Hospital went well yesterday, treating 3 patients in quick succession. Mr Denzil May FRCS will be spearheading the introduction of Rafaelo at Duchy Hospital, supported by Matron Debby Blease, Theatre Sister, Ann Hole, and the extremely capable Business Development Manager, Ms. Lucy Moyse. A great team and we look forward to working with them in the future.

Another NHS Hospital offers The Rafaelo Procedure

Today we attended the first Rafaelo list at the Royal Hampshire County NHS Hospital. Mr Jack Broadhurst FRCS and Mr Tim Moore FRCS have jointly introduced Rafaelo to the NHS in Winchester and today their first 5 patients were successfully treated. The speed of the treatment, coupled with the extremely efficient team which managed the patient changeovers, meant that we even finished the list early! Everyone was delighted with the way it went and we look forward to supporting the team again very soon.
