Why choose Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital for your varicose veins treatment?
Are you suffering from unsightly and uncomfortable varicose veins, but are unsure on the right treatment for you? At Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital our experienced vascular surgeons excel in a number of different removal procedures and can recommend the most suitable surgery through a treatment plan individually tailored to you.
Varicose veins are mainly seen on your legs. They may not cause any pain or any problems, but they can be unsightly and you may be self-conscious about them. They can also make legs feel tired or itchy. In rare cases, large varicose veins can bleed or cause ulcers on the legs, especially as you get older.
We provide the following varicose veins removal procedures in Leamington Spa
Sclerotherapy involves injecting varicose veins with a chemical that causes the vein lining to collapse and the vein to fade in a few weeks. The type of treatment is most commonly used for smaller varicose veins to avoid more invasive procedures.
Radiofrequency ablation involves the use of radiofrequency energy to collapse the vein, seal and shut it. Once the vein is shut, the healthier veins take over. A thin tube is then inserted into the vein above or below the knee. This procedure can be often carried out as an outpatient.
Ligation and stripping is a well-established surgical method of removing varicose veins. Surgery normally takes around one hour and an anaesthetic is involved.
Endovenous laser therapy is a minimally invasive method of treating varicose veins which has become established in this country over the past three years. This procedure is used to treat patients with lumpy varicose veins in the legs.
