We find that in practice, 9 out of 10 people are very satisfied with the outcome of the procedure.

One in 10 feel that their symptoms are not improved sufficiently afterwards. In these cases, the Rafaelo procedure can be repeated, or an alternative treatment like excision of remaining anal skin tags or traditional haemorrhoidectomy may be required.

Mr von Roon will advise you on this when you attend for the follow-up consultation.
