Patient experiences like this are now common after modern minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. Just a few years ago treatment was limited to surgery, support stockings and in-patient stays.
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.
Despite the fact that so many people have varicose veins they receive little in the way of medical attention due to many NHS Trusts now only treating the 10% of cases which would be regarded as medically significant i.e. skin changes and signs of chronic venous insufficiency.
For many people the appearance of varicose veins or spider veins prevent them wearing shorts or swimming costumes, alternatively they may cause discomfort which is troubling. Our aim is to provide the best care to all of our patients with venous problems.
Mr. Stuart Suttie, Consultant at the Aberdeen Clinic says,
‘Varicose veins are amongst the most common 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.’
The multi-disciplinary team at the Aberdeen Clinic is expert at helping patients select the optimal treatment for their varicose veins. Patients can then benefit from a walk-in-walk-out treatment delivered by a 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.
