Why choose Nuffield Health Taunton Hospital for your varicose veins treatment?

Many varicose vein sufferers struggle with tired legs, severe swelling, throbbing pain, unsightly and swollen veins. They can also experience other unpleasant consequences, such as 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.

At Nuffield Health Taunton Hospital our expert vascular surgeons are leading the way in the South West region for the private treatment of varicose veins removal.

If you require first class vascular treatment, but without the long waiting list, then get in touch with Nuffield Health in Taunton today.

Once varicose veins have appeared they will not disappear on their own. Left untreated varicose veins may become worse.
