One Stop ‘See & Treat’ for Haemorrhoids
It is common for people to suffer with haemorrhoid / piles symptoms such as bleeding and or swelling in the anal area on opening their bowels. In some people these symptoms will be periodic and simple lifestyle measures (such as eating healthier) or over the counter creams (anusol) will give some relief. If the symptoms persist then seeing your GP doctor is advisable.
Once a diagnosis of piles is made it is not unusual for people to ignore their symptoms due to the long NHS waiting times and the potential for long painful recovery following conventional treatments. This is where the Rafaelo procedure has revolutionised how we are able to treat these embarrassing and worrying symptoms. This pioneering technology has paved the way for our ONE STOP haemorrhoid service.
Rafaelo Treatment for Haemorrhoids
The Rafaelo Procedure is the latest advanced treatment for haemorrhoids. This procedure uses radio frequency technology to reduce, and in most cases, eliminate, the common symptoms of internal (Grade 1-3) haemorrhoids by heating them up and causing them to shrink and seal off.
It can be carried out using only local anaesthetic. Most patients report very little pain or discomfort, and as a result the post-operative recovery time is very short. The success rate is around 90% which means it’s a single one off treatment in most cases.
The Rafaelo Procedure is a minimally-invasive walk in walk out treatment which typically takes no longer than 15-20 minutes to perform. Cosmedics offer this within our convenient ‘See & Treat’ service for patients, so you can get on with normal life without having to worry about them.

What is different about our Rafaelo Haemorrhoid Service?
- Firstly you will be seen by Mr Alex von Roon who is a leading London colorectal consultant surgeon and given an immediate diagnosis
- You do not need a referral as it is a private service at our Harley Street Clinic
- We provide a one stop ‘See & Treat’ service so patients can be examined and treated on the same day as a walk in walk out service.
- Fast recovery so can return to work within 24-48 hours
- The Rafaelo procedure is our preferred treatment because we believe that it offers the best balance between effectiveness and postoperative discomfort.
If your haemorrhoids are not suitable for the Rafaelo procedure, Mr von Roon will discuss other treatment options with you.
A consultation with our Colorectal Consultant Surgeon is required prior to treatment to provide a detailed diagnosis so that treatment options can be fully explained based on your specific needs.
All consultations and treatments are carried out at our Harley Street Clinic in central London.
