All modern minimally invasive treatment modalities are available. We deal with the entire spectrum of varicose veins, from severe surgical problems like ulcers to cosmetic veins, with excellent results
We provide a rapid service for the treatment of varicose veins and allied problems. As we work only in private healthcare, there is a minimal waiting time, and all clients will be booked for their treatment at their first clinic attendance.
The techniques used are all performed under local anaesthesia, with often just a single puncture required to achieve the entire treatment, and are all walk-in walk-out
Varicose veins comprise a spectrum of conditions, ranging from tiny superficial blue or broken or thread veins, to visible bulging varicosities. They can occur from the very top of the leg to the ankle, and all are can be investigated quickly and painlessly by non-invasive ultrasound, and are all treatable under local anaesthesia.
Ultrasound scanning is used in every case, to ensure there is a problem with the veins and to localize the exact source of the veins. If there is a problem, the scan and clinical picture will help decide the optimal treatment modalities appropriate to treat your particular veins.
We offer all modern endovenous treatments, which include ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, microsclerotherapy, endoluminal heat or thermal ablation, mechanochemical ablation (MOCA), and endovenous bioahesive closure. Varicosities can also easily be removed painlessly under local anaesthesia as a day case procedure known as phlebectomy.
Severe or long-standing varicose veins can result in skin changes. These include rashes like ezcema, causing broken weeping itchy skin, leg swelling and oedema, reddened indurated skin, and even ulcers. Sometimes, ulceration is related to several different underlying causes, but dealing with any underlying veins can help the ulcers to heal.
We are based in Dorset and offer all these treatment modalities to day case clients across the Central South, and have many years of experience in dealing with these problems.
