Features:

At the Varicose Vein Clinic you can expect to receive a thorough evaluation of your problem which includes duplex ultrasound examination to assess the state and function of your veins.

We will then discuss treatment options, presenting the advantages, disadvantages and possible risks of various procedures. Treatment may require surgery, sclerotherapy or a combination of both to deal most effectively with veins of different sizes. In other situations, non-operative measures such as weight loss and stockings may be sufficient.
