It achieves the same outcomes as a haemorrhoidectomy, but is less painful, may be performed under local anaesthetic and has a lower chance of recurrence. Patient return to daily activities quickly after the treatment.
The standard procedure of a haemorrhoidectomy, is carried out under general anaesthetic and involves cutting out the haemorrhoid and any excess tissue. Resulting in pain and discomfort post procedure taking 7 days to recover and a high recurrence rate.

It takes around 15 minutes and has little pain post procedure.
The Rafaelo Procedure can be used effectively on all grades of internal haemorrhoids. It is generally carried out under local anaesthetic and the surgeon uses radio frequency technology to treat the haemorrhoid.
The area around the haemorrhoid is anaesthetised to avoid any discomfort. Radio frequency energy is then applied to the haemorrhoid, which reduces the blood flow and causes it to shrink and eventually disappear. This often only takes one 15 minute treatment session and requires minimal post-operative after-care. Symptoms should improve almost immediately.
Anyone suffering from haemorrhoids may be suitable for the procedure, including external haemorrhoids. However, it most suited to treat grades 1-3 internal haemorrhoids, however, some grade 4 haemorrhoids may be reduced because it treats the internal component. The external component reduces, making it easier for subsequent surgery if required.
