Consultations and Treatments for Varicose Veins and Thread Veins
Varicose veins are prominent, superficial veins that are usually nothing more than a cosmetic issue. However, in some cases, varicose veins can also cause pain, aching, cramps, restlessness and ulceration. If you are suffering from varicose veins or thread veins, we can help.
Here at the North West Independent Hospital, we offer a range of treatments for varicose veins and thread veins that will relieve you of these symptoms and improve the appearance of the areas in which they occur.
Our treatments for vascular conditions include:
- Open surgery
- Junctional ligation and removal of superficial veins
We Will Choose the Vascular Treatment that Best Suits Your Needs
Our team will assess your condition fully before recommending the most suitable treatment to suit your individual needs. For example, some patients may be suited to laser treatment, VNUS treatment or VenaSeal (Glue) which is the latest treatment for varicose veins. This particular treatment involves a shorter recovery time and can be carried out under local anaesthetic. We can also administer treatments under a general anaesthetic, if you prefer.
Our treatments are usually far less painful than our patients expect. During your consultation, we will explain your procedure and what you can expect at every stage.
Why Should Varicose Veins be Treated?
Varicose veins by themselves don’t usually cause any problems beyond the cosmetic issues that individuals find uncomfortable. However, they can cause pressure, and it is this increased pressure that may cause problems over time. For example, many of our patients can experience skin conditions such as ulceration, and this can mean that you have to wear bandages or other dressings on your legs.
Our treatments nip the problem in the bud, and prevent painful symptoms from occurring in the first place. When we treat the root cause of the problem and remove the varicose veins, all underlying problems disappear too.
What to Expect Following Your Treatment
Our surgeons are experts in vascular surgery and treatments, and have carried out countless procedures in the past. Your healing time will depend on the treatment you receive. We will also give you all the right advice you need about aftercare, and also the things you can do to prevent varicose and thread veins from appearing again. The treatments we offer are highly effective, and can relieve both the cosmetic and medical problems that vascular conditions like this can create.
