Specific treatments are best considered on discussion with a qualified Vascular Surgeon and will be tailored to the individuals needs. In many cases, non-surgical treatments are preferred as modern vein care often avoids the need for traditional surgery. Options include:
Injection Sclerotherapy involves micro-injections of a sclerosant solution as an outpatient procedure and may be ideal for small veins and thread veins.
Ultrasound-guided Foam Sclerotherapy involves injection of a sclerosant foam by ultrasound guidance as an outpatient procedure and may be ideal for larger veins.
Radiofrequency Ablation of Varicose Veins involves a special catheter introduced into the vein under local-anaesthetic as a day-case procedure to treat large veins.
Conventional Vein Surgery involves surgical removal of veins often as a day-case procedure and can treat all large veins and remains the commonest treatment for Varicose Veins.
The most appropriate treatment may involve a combination of the above treatment options.
