Millions of people around the world suffer from hemorrhoids. This disease has a big impact on the patient daily life going from discomfort and shame to painful bleeding and inability to function in later stages. Although traditional techniques can be the cure they often result in a painful recovery and a long-term return of the symptoms.
F Care Systems has developed a revolutionary technique called the Rafaelo® procedure. Rafaelo® or RAdioFrequency treatment of hAEmorrhoids under LOcal anesthesia is a new approach with great clinical outcome and quick recovery.
A specially designed probe HPR45i allows practitioners to work quickly with good visibility and immediate result. In combination with the local anesthesia, the procedure time is reduced by 50% making it a rather painless procedure. Post-operative care is reduced to a minimum in most cases.
Quick procedure performed in day-case or outpatient setting
Quick return to daily activities
Comparatively little or no pain
Under local anesthesia
Immediate clinical results
Minimal post-operative care
Easy to learn and simple to perform the procedure
Cost-effective and efficient treatment
An excellent alternative to more invasive techniques
The tip of the HPR45i probe is inserted into- and applied onto the haemorrhoid while a radiofrequency signal, coming from the generator, is applied onto the tip.
The haemorrhoid is coagulated by means of radiofrequency induced heat which causes the haemorrhoidal tissue to shrink, and a crust is formed over the tissue. The crust will fall off automatically after some time.
