Treatments Available in Bournemouth

Varicose Vein Treatments

Consultations with Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mr Dynesh Rittoo are available at our Bournemouth clinic. All consultations include a free duplex ultrasound scan with results provided within the same consultation.

The treatments that we can provide include:

EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation) is a method of treating varicose veins using a laser which is performed under local anaesthetic. Known as the Gold Standard Varicose Vein treatment by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). The treatment is minimally invasive and involves locating the damaged vein/s with ultrasound, before using laser heat to collapse the wall of the vein/s, therefore, destroying the cause of the problem. Find out more.

RFA (Radiofrequency Ablation) is a similar treatment to EVLA that instead uses Radiofrequency energy. It is also regarded as a gold standard varicose vein treatment by NICE. The treatment involves using radiofrequency thermal energy to shrink and close off varicose veins. Performed as an in-clinic procedure under local anaesthetic it promotes a fast healing time with less inflammation and discomfort. Find out more here.

VenaSeal is a great option for patients who have a needle phobia as VenaSeal only requires a single injection per vein. Performed under local anaesthetic, a cannula will be inserted into the vein using ultrasound and the VenaSeal tool will then dispense small amounts of medical-grade Sapheon Glue which works to close the vein. Recovery time is relatively shorter and you often are not required to wear compression stockings after treatment and are able to return to daily activities such as work and exercise a lot sooner. Find out more.

A Phlebectomy procedure involves making small incisions to allow the varicose veins to be removed under local anaesthetic. The procedure is best performed on patients with large varicose veins close to the surface of the skin. The results are instant as the veins are removed and no stitches are required. Find out more.

Foam Sclerotherapy
Foam Sclerotherapy is a slight variation of Sclerotherapy treatment used for thread veins. The sclerotherapy treatment solution is mixed with air which creates a foam substance suitable for treating varicose veins. This foam is then injected into the varicose veins under local anaesthetic and it then coats the vein wall causing inflammation inside the vein pushing the blood out of the area. Find out more.
