Varicose Vein Treatments at our Leeds Veins Clinic
There are a range of varicose vein treatments on offer at our clinic in Leeds. Traditionally varicose veins removal treatment has involved vein stripping which not only results in a substantial amount of downtime but also involves a lot of revision surgery for unsuccessful treatments. Vein stripping has also been advised by NICE to not be used except in exceptional circumstances. At the varicose vein clinic in Leeds, we have always believed there to be much better treatments available and therefore only offer what we believe to be the best options for treating varicose veins.
All of our varicose vein treatments are performed under local anaesthetic in our in-house theatre allowing you to return home to recover with no need for an overnight stay. You will be in the best of hands with our Leeds varicose vein team and our 24-hour patient helpline means that we are always contactable.
The varicose vein treatments that we offer Leeds are:
EVLA – Considered the Gold Standard of varicose vein treatment by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) our Endovenous Laser Ablation is one of our most popular treatments for varicose veins. EVLA involves locating the veins to be treated with ultrasound before then using laser heat to destroy the wall of the varicose vein and effectively remove the cause of the problem. Once collapsed, the vein will then be naturally absorbed by the body and existing blood flow will be relocated to veins deeper in the leg.
VenaSeal – VenaSeal is a great option for patients who have a phobia of needles as it only requires one small injection per vein. The treatment uses medical adhesive to close varicose veins. You will be required to have a small catheter inserted which the surgeon will then guide through the leg using ultrasound imaging. During this process, a VenaSeal tool will be used to dispense small amounts of medical grade Sapheon Glue to close the vein. Once closed, the blood is re-routed through other healthy veins located deeper within the leg and the original varicose vein is gradually absorbed by the body. Another benefit of VenaSeal treatment is its quick recovery time, many patients do not need to wear compression stockings and find themselves able to return to work and exercise a lot quicker
Sclerotherapy – When treating varicose veins with sclerotherapy it is known as foam sclerotherapy which is a much stronger solution that is used in a foam format rather than liquid. Foam sclerotherapy involves injecting the varicose vein with a foam solution which causes inflammation in the vein which results in the blood being pushed out of the vein and the vein then becoming sticky and closing up over the course of 1-2 weeks after treatment.
Phlebectomy – A Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive enlarged vein removal procedure that is effective at removing large varicose veins that sit just below the surface of the leg. Very small incisions will be made on the leg and a very fine surgical hook will be used to remove the varicose vein from the leg. Phlebectomy procedures do not require stitches and patients are able to return home shortly after their procedure. It is quite common for Phlebectomy procedures to be performed alongside other varicose vein procedures as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
We also offer thread vein treatments at our Leeds Vein Clinic.

Varicose Vein Treatment Leeds Reviews
“I cannot sing the praises loudly enough for the staff at the Private Clinic in Leeds.
I had varicose veins in my left calf for about eight years, they were never a big problem, most of the time I never knew that they were there, my left calf was very swollen and was always hot to the touch.
About one year ago I developed a long thin lump on my left leg that was when the pain really started, every day the pain increased, I felt that eventually, I would not be able to go to work.
It became obvious to me that I needed to have an operation as quickly as possible, (I could not wait for an operation on the NHS, even if they had agreed to carry out the procedure) I looked at numerous providers on the internet and decided to trust The Private Clinic in Leeds.
My leg is like new, and the pain is gone.
The staff were all very helpful, I would like to say a Big Thank you to Louisa who was very encouraging, also to the two nurses Leigh and Helen who looked after me so very well, and to Mr Hussain who performed the operation.”
Robert – York

Kath – Doncaster
“I have been really pleased with all aspects of my varicose veins treatment at the Leeds clinic. All the staff were friendly helpful and caring. Everything was explained and any questions I had were answered. It was nice to have a phone call afterwards to check all was well and being able to ring the clinic with any questions and know I would be able to speak to a nurse, it was really reassuring. Thank you to all involved.”
Lesley – Doncaster
“I wasn’t looking forward to EVLA and Plebectomy treatments but the staff were friendly and reassuring. Mr Hussain inspired confidence and the theatre nurses, Helen and Leigh were great. I would recommend this clinic and would return without hesitation for other treatments.”
Varicose Vein FAQs
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are enlarged veins that commonly appear on the legs. They may be dark purple or blue in colour and can bulge out from the surface of the skin.
Varicose veins are damaged veins that are no longer able to function properly and stop the blood from flowing backwards. When the blood flows backwards it can end up sitting in the vein causing it to become swollen and enlarged which is often visible from the surface of the skin.
If you have varicose veins you may experience an itchy sensation around the site of the veins, pain after sitting or standing for extended periods of time, consistent aching feeling in the leg and burning, swelling or muscle cramping in the lower legs.
When is the best time to treat varicose veins?
Varicose vein treatments are performed all year round. Many patients prefer to choose the Autumn or Winter months to allow them enough time to recover ready for the warmer weather or holidays in the summer. We have a variety of treatments to suit everyone’s needs and our experienced vascular surgeons will be able to help you decide when the best time for treatment is for you.
How soon will I see the results from varicose vein removal?
Many patients are able to see a different immediately after the procedure has been taken place but as you will be often required to wear a compression stocking for at least a week following the procedure, the initial results will not be visible.
When you take your stocking off, you may have some bruising, but you should notice a reduction in the appearance of your varicose veins.
The best results are seen 6 weeks following your varicose vein procedure.
Is removing varicose veins safe?
Varicose vein removal is a very safe procedure that is performed both privately and on the NHS. Varicose veins are damaged veins that are not performing properly and therefore they are not needed. Once the varicose veins have been removed, the other veins in the area will be able to move the blood around the body more effectively without having to deal with the under-performing varicose vein that was previously causing them to work harder.
Our expert vascular surgeons will explain your varicose vein procedure in more detail during your consultation including what will happen once the veins have been removed.
