Why choose Nuffield Health Newcastle Hospital for your varicose vein removal treatment?
Are you seeking expert advice or treatment options to remove your irritating varicose veins? Varicose vein sufferers can experience a range of symptoms; tired legs, severe swelling, throbbing pain, lack of self-confidence, unsightly and swollen veins. Other unpleasant consequences can include bleeding, skin irritation and ulceration. As a result many patients requiring rapid access to treatment will choose to go 'private'.
Varicose veins occur in the superficial veins of the leg. These veins have a system of valves which should ensure that the blood runs from the legs back up to the heart. Varicose veins occur when these valves fail, allowing blood to run back down into the veins in the leg, damming up in these veins and causing them to dilate and become varicose.
Our leading vascular surgeons, based in Newcastle, specialise in performing varicose vein surgery and offer a range of treatments to help eliminate unwanted veins. Depending on the severity and location of your varicose veins, our consultants will provide you with a tailored treatment plan, as well as outlining which procedures would work best for you.

There are a number of factors which can contribute to varicose veins developing:
- A family history of varicose veins
- Being overweight
- Going through multiple pregnancies
- People who are particularly active or who spend a lot of time standing such as teachers, waitresses, nurses
- Once varicose veins have appeared they will not disappear on their own. Left untreated varicose veins may become worse.
