New Service

Introductory offer £1,900

It's a safe and effective alternative to surgery, with minimal post-operative pain. Rafaelo® allows patients to return to their normal daily activities immediately after treatment.

This new treatment utilises safe and reliable radio frequency technology to reduce, and in most cases, eliminate, the common symptoms of internal (Grade 1-3) haemorrhoids. Similar technology has been used successfully for many years to treat varicose veins in the legs, and this has now been adapted and modified for the treatment of haemorrhoids. A special needle is inserted into the haemorrhoid, and is then treated with radio frequency energy. This aims to shrink the haemorrhoid by heating the tissue.
