“I am overjoyed with the results. All the unsightly veins have gone and I no longer feel self-conscious wearing shorts.”
Patient experiences like this are now common after modern minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins but were unheard of just a few years ago when treatment was limited to surgery and support stockings
Between 1 in 3 to 1 in 4 adults in the UK have varicose veins. They are more common with certain conditions and almost half of all pregnant women will develop varicose veins.
Varicose veins can cause your legs to ache and interfere with the things that you enjoy doing like running and exercise in general. For many the appearance of varicose veins or spider veins can also look unsightly and make you feel self-conscious about baring your legs during the summer months.
Mr. Stuart Suttie, Consultant at the Aberdeen Clinic says ‘Varicose veins are amongst the commonest reasons patients come to see me. We are able to treat varicose veins with minimally invasive techniques such as radiofrequency ablation and ultrasound guided injection of foam. These techniques have revolutionised the recovery from varicose vein treatment.’
Despite the fact that so many people have varicose veins they receive little in the way of medical attention due to many NHS organisations now only treating the 10% of cases which would be regarded as medically significant i.e. skin changes and signs of chronic venous insufficiency.
The multi-disciplinary team at the Aberdeen Clinic is expert at helping patients select the optimal treatment for their varicose veins. After a one stop assessment your Consultant will discuss the results of your scan and tailor a treatment plan specifically for you.
You can then benefit from a walk-in-walk-out treatment delivered by your specialist consultant at the Aberdeen Clinic. As a result varicose vein problems can be a thing of the past after a simple cost effective out-patient procedure.
