Are you sitting comfortably?

Haemorrhoids (or piles as they are commonly known) are generally an unspoken curse from which many of us suffer, but are too embarrassed to discuss with our loved ones, let alone our GP. They are enlarged vascular ‘cushions’ just inside or around the bottom (anus and lower rectum), thought to be caused by a variety of factors but commonly constipation, diarrhoea or excessive straining.

They're very common; it's been estimated that up to 50% of the population may suffer from symptomatic haemorrhoids at some point in their lives.*

Rafaelo procedure available at Spire Wellesley Hospital

After 3 years of development and over 2,000 patients successfully treated across Europe with outstanding results, we’re able to offer the Rafaelo Procedure at Spire Wellesley Hospital.

Using the safe and established technology of radio frequency ablation, the Rafaelo procedure can be performed on a walk-in, walk-out basis.

Watch how the Rafaelo procedure works


  • You won't need a general anaesthetic, and can return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment, rather than needing three weeks to recover.
  • You’ll be virtually pain free after the procedure and your symptoms should improve almost immediately. 

Find out more about the Rafaelo procedure on their website.

If you have haemorrhoids which are between grades 1, 2 or 3, Rafaelo could be the treatment for you. Some grade 4 haemorrhoids may be reduced, but it's unlikely that they will not reach a complete resolution, which often will require surgery.
