Mrs Elliott (86) was treated for her prolapsing haemorrhoids by Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, Mr Nick West, having suffered on and off for the past 63 years but got to the stage where her symptoms were no longer manageable. She read about Rafaelo in the Daily Mail and did her own research on the internet. Mrs Elliott says that the procedure itself was totally comfortable and she is now fully cured of her symptoms. She says that The Rafaelo Procedure is ‘absolutely life changing’ and would recommend it to anyone
Paul Sylvester FRCS from Spire Bristol commented today on his examination of a recent Rafaelo patient “The second man we treated with a prolapse has had a really good symptomatic response. Some bleeding week 2, as expected, with some evidence of mucosal slough. On examination now he cannot feel it and a proctoscopy already shows a reduction by 75% in size. No pain at all’.
Mr Justin Davies, consultant colorectal surgeon at Spire Cambridge Lea, today carried out his first two Rafaelo treatments, making him the first surgeon in East Anglia to offer the treatment. With Rafaelo lists planned on a regular basis, Mr Davies sees this as an excellent addition to his treatment regime.
Mr Tom Pearson FRCS carried out his first two Rafaelo procedures today at The Chelmsford Private Hospital, both complete successes. He now intends to offer regular Rafaelo lists going forward, seeing this as a superb alternative to surgery.
