Varicose Vein treatments in Harpenden, Hertfordshire

Published on February 2, 2012 by

Did you know that surgery is a last resort when treating varicose veins and that skilled vascular surgeons can successfully treat most cases with ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy?

Riverbanks Wellness, located just outside Harpenden in East Hyde Bedfordshire runs Varicose Vein Clinics where you will be cared for by our expert team led by Mr Paul Hayes.

Our consultant vascular surgeon is such an expert and during an initial consultation he will explain to you which therapy is best for you. Some patients with fine threadveins require microsclerotherapy, while those with more severe venous disease may require laser surgery.

Only after a careful ultrasound scan of you the deep veins in your legs will it be possible to suggest a correct treatment option for you. The surgeon’s findings will be explained to you in a letter and your GP can also be informed if you want. You can then book in for a treatment at a later date.

Ultrasound Guided Foam sclerotherapy is performed in the treatment room at Riverbanks Wellness.  The Ultrasound allows the surgeon to precisely locate your veins so that he can inject the foam directly into them, maximising the results. Your legs will then be wrapped in compression dressings for 5 days after which you will need to wear a compression stocking for a couple more weeks. 

You can watch a video of Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy at Riverbanks here.

For more information please call 01582762877 to book in for a consultation with our vascular surgeon.
