If you’ve been experiencing itching, pain or bleeding “around back”, you’re not alone: haemorrhoids (piles) might well be the most widespread health issue that no-one talks about at parties. Find out why they develop—and more importantly, how to get rid of them.

Anal fistulas

The good news: anal fistulas aren’t caused by poor hygiene. The bad news: once formed, they almost never go away on their own. Read on for information about where anal fistulas come from and how to seal them up.

Varicose veins

Have you ever wondered why the veins in some people’s legs bulge out? Do your calves and feet feel swollen and heavy by the end of the day? For some people, varicose veins are just a deterrent to wearing shorts, but for others, they can result in more serious symptoms. Fortunately, they’re easier than ever to treat.

Skin disorders

Even after learning that a tumour is benign (non-cancerous), you and your doctor may still decide that it needs removal—but depending on where it’s located, surgery might be tricky. Luckily, minimally invasive medicine has made some incredible advances. Our patient page has helpful medical information on benign liver, lung, and thyroid tumours.


Despite what glossy magazines would have you believe, the vast majority of women (and some men) have cellulite. Though researchers still have questions on how and why it develops, there are several promising new approaches to minimising its appearance.

Radiofrequency treatments

We specialise in minimally invasive treatments involving radiofrequency (RF) energy. Many of them involve a process called thermocoagulation, which uses precisely targeted RF to heat up and destroy unhealthy tissue (such as piles or varicose veins). The ultrafine probes and catheters used to deliver the energy prevent damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

Advantages of radiofrequency:

  • No incision required—no surgery-related risks 
  • Can often be done on an outpatient or day-case basis 
  • Extremely safe—minimal risk of complications
  • Allows you to resume regular activities quickly
