Radiofrequency treatment (Rafaelo) is a minimally invasive treatment with excellent results in prolapsing hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoid symptoms like itching, soiling, bleeding, and pain are significantly reduced using this method. The outcome of treatment remains stable over time and only a low percentage of patients need additional medical support.
Besides the significant reduction of hemorrhoid symptoms, low post-interventional pain is superior to normal hemorrhoid surgery. Moreover, the Rafaelo procedure is mostly conducted on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
