We're all different, and that's why we offer a choice of possible treatments under one roof. What they all have in common, however, is that you'll walk out the same day, ready to get on with your life.

Once you've chosen the most suitable procedure with the help of your surgeon, you'll be in the best possible hands. Accredited by the Care Quality Commission, our team has specialised in the treatment of vein problems for over 20 years – and it shows.



A recently introduced technique that's suitable for around 70% of patients. A fine catheter is used to introduce a solution which permanently closes the vein from the inside.

Radio Frequency Ablation (Vnus™ Closure and Olympus RFiTT™)

In both these techniques, a fine RF (radio-frequency) catheter is inserted along the length of the affected vein. When activated, the catheter produces heat within the vein. This causes the wall to shrink, permanently closing the vein.

Laser Ablation (VenaCure EVLT™)

A laser technique that involves introducing a fine tube into the problem vein. A laser fibre is then passed through the tube. This fibre is activated and then slowly withdrawn, permanently closing the vein behind it as it moves.

Varicose vein treatment is commonly performed and generally safe

However, all surgical and medical procedures carry risks as well as benefits. You should ask your surgeon how any risks may apply to you.

After treatment…

You're likely to have some bruising, particularly if you have laser treatment. You'll need to wear a compression stocking or bandage for a week or so, but you should be free to get back to most of your normal activities immediately. It's best to wait about a week before resuming any strenuous sports.
