“The Hyfrecator is more versatile and can be used to treat more conditions than any other type of electrocautery or cryotherapy equipment. It delivers rapid, precise destruction of all types of cutaneous malformation, including telangiectasia and unwanted hair growth. It can provide controlled tissue coagulation and precise surgical haemostasis using bipolar coagulation. Small lesions can be treated without anaesthesia.
Enjoy using your new electrosurgical companion. Most Hyfrecator owners are enthusiastic about their machine and will readily swap advice on treatments with you.”

“We have tried various approaches and conclude that using the Hyfrecator to sear a perforation through the scrotal skin overlaying the vas, (it being secured in place by the ring forceps), is the best method, resulting a proceedure which, to the great relief of the recipient, is virtually bloodless. Once the vas has been delivered through the scrotal skin using the surgical haemostat it can be efficiently dealt with by the Hyfrecator which coagulates/vaporises a 2-3cm length. This is then transacted, and the ends returned to the scrotal sack. Finally, the tiny skin opening can be pinched, shut and sealed with Opsite. The look of amazement on the faces of the men and their partners when the procedure is over is very gratifying!
I have no hesitation in recommending the Hyfrecator especially as it so useful for so many other minor surgical procedures in general practice, its versatility making it now an indispensable item in our treatment room.
In my own GP surgery my colleagues and I perform between 6 and 12 vasectomies a week. We are also a training centre, certifying suitable doctors to provide NSV services on satisfactory completion of the training programme.”
