The first choice for treating the Great and Small Saphenous Veins
Endovenous ablation is the current gold standard. Although the most expensive of treatments it gives the best results and allows patients back to normal activity almost immediately. It can be performed under either a Local (awake) or General ( asleep) anaesthetic .
A keyhole technique for removing lumpy veins on the legs
We use multiple avulsions to make sure that people have their varicose veins removed so that they are happy to expose their legs. The treatment can be done when awake under local anaesthetic as a ‘walk in, walk out’ procedure, or when asleep under a general anaesthetic. It is often combined with endovenous ablation so you only need one treatment session.
Specialist Vascular Ultrasound
One Stop appointments with our senior vascular scientists
In order to provide the best assessment of your blood vessels we only use accredited vascular scientists and work in partnership with Vascular Ultrasound Ltd.
Walk in Walk out injection treatment
Varicofoam is an excellent technique for treatment of Varicose Veins in patients who do not want surgery or who have leg ulcers. It is also the least expensive of the treatments available.
Treatment for spider and thread veins
We use fine injections, which barely hurt, to treat the broken veins that are frequently a problem for people who do not want to expose their legs.
