After your initial assessment with Mr Ali, you will be given a full breakdown of the treatment plan recommended for you.
All procedures are performed under local anaesthetic as ‘walk in, walk out’ surgery. This means that, unless there are any exceptional circumstances, patients should be back to work and back to relatively normal activities soon after treatment.
What causes varicose veins?
Varicose veins or superficial venous insufficiency is a mechanical problem where the valves inside the veins have stopped closing properly. This makes the blood, instead of moving upwards to the heart, flow downwards in the wrong direction, that is called “reflux”. This is a genetic disorder.
What is the best way to treat varicose veins?
We follow industry best practice. The first step in treating them is to carry out a correct and thorough Doppler-Ultrasound scan for both legs to find out all the veins that are causing the root problem. Using the results from the scan, we tailor the best treatment for each patient. Using this approach, we can achieve a recurrence rate of 3% or less.
What are the dangers of treatment for varicose veins?
Treatment procedures are minimally invasive, under local anaesthesia and with incisions of less than 2mm. These factors allow patients to resume normal daily activity straight after the procedure and minimise risks.
What is Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of varicose veins?
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of varicose veins is the first of the new varicose veins treatments. These are called “endovenous” treatments of varicose veins – or “minimally invasive” surgery or “Keyhole” surgery.
Before endovenous surgery became available, the main way to have varicose veins treated was by stripping.
Radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins uses heat to kill the vein and close it from the inside. Therefore, ablating the vein with heat from a device passed up inside the vein.
After having a long wait time of 3 1/2 weeks for an appointment with my NHS Dr, I decided to book in with the private gp clinic. This was quick and simple my appointment was the following week (could have been sooner if I were available). The reception staff greeted me with warm smiles as did Dr Soin. Very professional and knowledgeable. I would book in again.
I had an appointment earlier this week with Joanne Horgan to discuss various options to manage my menopause. We spent some time going through my background and following comprehensive blood tests Joanne has made excellent recommendations for me. She has a wealth of experience and an extremely warm... Readmore and friendly manner. I would thoroughly recommend Joanne if you want help managing your menopause. I only wish I had found her sooner!!!
I saw Dr Horgan last week. Very impressed with the service I received. Very nice Dr to talk to who listens, answers questions and takes time to discuss. Will definitely use again.
I spent an hour with Joanne recently talking through my menopause issues and could not be happier. Blood tests were taken the same day and results were available 2 days later. Joanne made some much-needed changes to my existing treatment and I would thoroughly recommend her if you're looking for help with managing your menopause. She has a warm and friendly manner and her knowledge in this area is first class
Offered an appointment within the hour, really great fast efficient service!
Felt very confident with what was happening, Joanne talked me through the whole procedure, whilst it was happening. Have already recommended it to friends and family. Am delighted with the results.
