We are proud to announce that The Whiteley Clinic now offer a brand new procedure for the treatment of haemorrhoids!
With an effective treatment plan targeting the root cause of the haemorrhoids, the revolutionary Rafaelo Procedure aims to offer those suffering with haemorrhoids a long-term solution to their problem, but without the pain, discomfort and other negative side effects of ‘traditional’ surgery.
So, The Whiteley Clinic in London is now offering the walk in walk out procedure, performed under local anaesthetic and with a much lower chance of recurrence.
Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are inflamed blood vessels found inside the anus and rectum.
Symptoms can include:
The condition can be seen as embarrassing, which can make people reluctant to visit their GP and seek treatment. Not only this, but once they have sought help, many suffers don’t proceed with ‘traditional’ surgery because of the serious side effects that normally come with it.
In the UK, approximately 50% of the population are estimated to suffer from haemorrhoids at some point during their lifetime and without there having been a long-term solution in place, sufferers are left with topical treatments like creams, ointments and suppositories. The condition can get so painful and uncomfortable that people resort to trying endless home remedies, like using Aloe vera, sitting in warm water several times a day or using Apple cider vinegar to try and reduce the itching and pain.
This new treatment is very important for patients suffering from the condition, as some of the other treatment techniques can leave patients recovering for several weeks post-surgery. Such treatments include cutting them away (Haemorrhoidectomy), banding them or stapling them.
This unique procedure has successfully treated over 2,000 patients in a 3 year period with remarkable results and no known recurrence of symptoms.
Some of the advantages include:

A recent quote from one Rafaelo patient
An 86 year old lady who has been suffering the symptoms of haemorrhoids for the past 63 years says
“The procedure itself was totally comfortable and I am now fully cured of my symptoms. The Rafaelo Procedure is ‘absolutely life changing’ and I would recommend it to anyone”.
