What causes varicose veins?

Varicose veins… – reflux”.  This may be a genetic disorder, but no one really knows for sure what makes the valve or surrounding vein tissue fail.

We follow evidence based 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 areas 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 3% or less.  We may recommend Endovenous ablation, Foam Sclerotherpy or Microslerotherpy.

What are the dangers of treatment for varicose veins?

Most veins are either unsightly or cause itching.  The worst cases start causing skin damage which can lead to either ulceration or occasionally phlebitis / inflammation of the vein with clots.

Treatment procedures are minimally invasive, under anaesthetic and with incisions of less than

2mm.  These factors allow patients to resume normal daily activity straight after the procedure and minimise risks.

What to expect after your surgery.

You will be bandaged from the foot to the thigh.  The bandage is tight to reduce any bruising, this stays on for 3 days, after which you can shower.

For most patients, simple painkillers for these 3/7 days is more than enough to allow you to walk and perform light duties such as shopping or climbing the stairs.  We do not recommend you drive for the first 3 days.

After this time, you can resume a normal lifestyle.  Activities including yoga, running, pilates etc.  We will also advise whether you need to take any anticoagulants, for 7 days, to thin the blood after the surgery.  After 6 weeks we will arrange a scan to make sure that your surgery has gone well.

An assessment with Mr Ali is required to give an exact price for procedure proposed.  The assessment will include venous duplex ultrasound investigation.  Treatment -Radiofrequency (RF) Ablation for Varicose Veins, Schlerotherapy.  Cost for initial assessment appointment – £150.

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.
