I have now been using the Hilotherapy system for approximately six months both in the NHS and my Private Practice. There is no doubt that it does enhance the patient experience following orthognathic surgery. Patients are certainly more comfortable following surgery and require less analgesia. My subjective impression is that it also decreases swelling. It is comfortable to wear, simple to set up and easily controlled by the nursing staff.
