Latest Piles Treatment

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are a common and often uncomfortable condition. Fortunately, there are minimally invasive treatment options available to address them. Two such options are the Rafaelo procedure and laser hemorrhoid surgery and the Rafaelo being the latest treatment of piles and hemorrhoids. Here’s a breakdown of each to help you understand which might be right for you.


Technology: Utilises radiofrequency ablation.
Anesthesia: Typically performed under local anesthetic, with or without mild sedation.
Procedure: A probe is inserted into the hemorrhoid, delivering radiofrequency energy that shrinks the tissue.

    • Minimally invasive
    • Short procedure time (around 15 minutes)
    • Minimal pain and discomfort
    • Quick recovery – often patients resume normal activities within a day
    • Low risk of complications


    • Relatively new procedure
    • May not be suitable for all grades of hemorrhoids


Technology: Uses a laser beam to remove or shrink hemorrhoidal tissue.
Anesthesia: May require general or spinal anesthesia.
Procedure: A laser fiber is inserted near the hemorrhoid, and the laser energy seals blood vessels or removes tissue.

    • Minimally invasive compared to traditional surgery
    • Effective for various grades of hemorrhoids
    • Reduced bleeding


    • More extensive procedure than Rafaelo
    • Requires stronger anesthesia
    • Longer recovery time than Rafaelo

Choosing Between Rafaelo and Laser Hemorrhoid Surgery:

The best option for you depends on several factors, including:

  • Severity of your hemorrhoids: Rafaelo may be suitable for grades I-III, while laser surgery can address a wider range.
  • Your pain tolerance: Rafaelo typically involves less pain during and after the procedure.
  • Your overall health: Certain medical conditions may affect which procedure is safest.
  • Your preferences: Discuss recovery time, anesthesia type and cost with Dr. Vani Vijay.
