Consultant Colorectal & General Surgeon

Miss Henna Rafique is a consultant colorectal and general surgeon with an expertise in a wide range for treatments for haemorrhoids, anal fissure, anal skin tags and anal warts.

She is the only female colorectal surgeon able to offer consultations and same day treatments at Harley Street and Putney clinics for Cosmedics.

Miss Rafique graduated from UCL medical school in 2007, with an intercalated BSc in Pharmacology. She pursued her higher surgical training in North West Thames and received her colorectal training at Imperial College London, Chelsea and Westminster and the Royal Marsden Hospitals. During her post graduate training she completed a MSc in Trauma Sciences with the Blizzard Institute at Queen Mary’s University London and conducted PhD research in Big Data through St Mark’s Hospital Academic Institute. She has subspecialty interests in locally advanced and recurrent rectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, pouch surgery and complex proctology. She is also a JAG certified endoscopist and is JETS National Clinical Lead for the JAG Endoscopy Workforce.

She says:

“I joined Cosmedics because they have an unrivalled reputation for excellence in care and treatments with high levels of satisfaction. With the ever pressure constraints on waiting lists, made worse by COVID, there is a large number of people who have unacceptable waiting times for simple treatments that will really improve life quality and sometimes ameliorate significant suffering – I really feel for them. Further, unfortunately there is rarely capacity or sympathy for those who request a female surgeon. At Cosmedics, you will receive consultation and same day treatments, to the highest professional standards, in a calm environment and if you wish, by a highly trained female surgeon”.
