I have been using Hilotherapy for my orthognathic surgery patients in Gloucester Royal Infirmary, during the early postoperative period (48 hours), for over 3 years. My patients have been reporting that the unit is extremely soothing, and we have noticed a reduction in the need for painkillers. I have found that the Hilotherapy unit is easy to apply and the machines are very reliable.

As users of Hilotherapy from the early days, we treat our patients after maxillofacial surgical procedures, directly after treatment for 1-2 hours. Ever since the introduction of the Hilotherm Homecare device, we have given it to our patients for three to four days at home in order to be able to continue using Hilotherapy there. The facts speak for themselves. Our patients are, as far as possible, also spared swellings and haematomas following surgical procedures such as wisdom teeth operation, implants etc. The healing process is accelerated considerably, combines with a reduction in post-operative pain, which is why our patients hardly ever have to take painkillers anymore.
