What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged and twisted veins that develop when the small valves in a vein fail, causing the blood to pool.  They are usually found in the legs and can be blue or purple, and sometimes lumpy.  They often run in families, but can develop after pregnancy or in people who have jobs that involve a lot of standing up or are overweight.  

Many people find varicose veins unsightly and they can cause discomfort and aching.  In rare cases they can ulcerate.  The vascular surgeons at BMI Healthcare are highly experienced in all the techniques available to remove varicose veins, improving the cosmetic appearance of the legs and removing any pain and discomfort.  They are happy to advise on the best treatment to suit the individual patient.

Varicose vein surgery at BMI Healthcare

Most varicose veins are caused by a failure in the valves of the incomplete saphenous vein in the leg.  The vascular surgeon removes the vein through a number of small incisions using a special instrument, usually under general anaesthetic as day surgery.

Laser treatment for varicose veins (EVLT)

Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) is a new, minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins.  It is a walk-in walk-out procedure carried out under local anaesthetic.  Suitable for seven out of ten patients, it is a very successful technique with 98% of people reporting no further problems after five years.

VNUS Closure™ Procedure (radiofrequency ablation)

Radiofrequency energy is used to shut and seal the varicose vein.  This is a new technique that results in less discomfort and bruising compared to EVLT, however patients should speak to their vascular surgeon to check if they are suitable for the procedure.
