What are Varicose Veins ?
Varicose veins are bulging, often painful veins that may affect the legs of people at all ages. They are a result of venous hypertension from poorly functioning valves and when untreated, and can lead to skin pigmentation, eczema and ulcers in the legs and ankles over time. They may also cause clots to form in the veins of the legs that can sometimes have serious consequences if the clots migrate to the heart and lungs.

WHY CHOOSE US
Why do varicose veins occur?
Varicose veins are a common condition caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves. They occur from conditions that impede the blood in the veins from returning to the heart, like pregnancy, obesity or a tumor. Heredity too plays a role in who is likely to develop varicose veins, as are professions like teaching or nursing that involve prolonged periods of standing.
What are some of the symptoms of varicose veins?
The enlarged, bluish rope-like veins are usually obvious. Other symptoms include swelling around the ankle and lower leg, a feeling of heaviness and ache in the legs and feet especially at the end of the day, itching and dark pigmentation of the skin around the ankles and leg cramps at night.
What is it like whilst recovering from a minimally invasive vein procedure?
Most of our patients are walking on the same day after the procedure and can get back to normal activity a week or so after. Wearing measured medical compression stockings allow a quicker return to normal. Brisk 30 minute daily walks are advised from the day after the procedure, though you should avoid strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks.
