Vascular specialist, London, Manchester, Bristol and Staffordshire: David West

A highly experienced and pioneering interventional radiologist specialising in minimally invasive techniques for varicose vein removal, including EVLA and VNUS closure.

Dr David West is Consultant Interventional Radiologist at University Hospital North Staffordshire and founder of Veincentre, a group of four friendly clinics offering the latest minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of varicose veins.

Veincentre: non-surgical treatment of varicose veins in the UK

An internationally recognised expert in endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and radiofrequency ablation (VNUS closure), Dr West founded Veincentre to provide a modern, efficient and fairly priced service for people seeking treatment for varicose veins.  All treatments at Veincentre are minimally invasive, resulting in a swift recovery and no scarring.  Consultation and treatment are performed in the same visit, with most appointments lasting under two hours.

Areas covered:

With clinics in Staffordshire, Manchester, London and Bristol, Veincentre is easily accessible from Birmingham, Liverpool, Stoke-on-Trent, Leeds, Sheffield, Oxford, Reading, Cardiff, Exeter and Plymouth.

Expert diagnosis and evaluation of varicose veins

Successful treatment of varicose veins is dependent on accurately assessing where the problem lies, for example seemingly innocuous spider veins can be a sign of valve damage in a more major underlying vein.  Dr West personally conducts colour duplex ultrasound vein mapping at the beginning of every appointment in order to plan the most appropriate treatment.

EVLA and VNUS Closure at Veincentre

EVLA and VNUS closure are both methods to destroy the main feeding varicose vein (the great saphenous vein).  This is achieved using laser energy in the case of EVLA and high frequency radiowaves for VNUS closure.  VNUS closure is associated with less bruising and discomfort than laser treatment, however it is not suitable for all patients, particularly those with twisted veins.  By offering both methods, in conjunction with techniques such as sclerotherapy and venous stenting, Dr West and the specialists at Veincare are able to offer non-surgical varicose vein treatment to 99% of patients visiting their clinics.


Safe and effective treatment of varicose veins

The minimally invasive techniques used at Veincentre can be performed without the need for a general anaesthetic or surgical incisions.  Their clinics are registered with the Care Quality Commission and a recent audit demonstrated effective treatment in 99% of cases with a 1% recurrence rate over 5 years.

Fair pricing for non-surgical varicose vein treatment

Recognising that many people are not considered for varicose vein treatment on the NHS unless their condition is severe, Dr West established Veincentre to provide the most modern and efficient techniques at affordable and fair prices, with no hidden charges.  The clinics are recognised by all major insurers in the UK and are able to offer low cost credit for people who may need it.
