the RAdio Frequency treatment of hAEmorrhoids under LOcal anaesthetic
Prior to your treatment, you will meet your Rafaelo specialist, an experienced colorectal doctor who will discuss your symptoms and the procedure in detail and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
On the day of your treatment, you will arrive at one of the clinics offering the Rafaelo Procedure. You’ll be greeted by a friendly member of staff and your colorectal surgeon will make you feel comfortable, ready for the short procedure.
If required, you will be given a mild sedative to help you relax. A local anaesthetic will be applied to the area of your haemorrhoid. The Device, emitting a safe and relatively painless radio frequency energy is then used to stem its blood supply and cause the haemorrhoid to contract. Your symptoms should improve instantly.
Most procedures take just a few minutes to complete and you will be free to leave the same day to get on with enjoying a haemorrhoid free life.
