Varicose Veins

At BMI Kings Park Hospital we offer a range of varicose vein treatments carried out by our experienced Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mr Stephen Kettlewell.

The majority of the varicose vein treatments carried out at our hospital are minimally invasive and are performed under local anaesthetic. This helps to minimise bruising, improve patient comfort and reduce recovery time allowing patients to return to work and normal activities as quickly as possible.

Varicose vein treatments are provided in line with NICE guidance (CG168).

We work with all the major private medical insurers and see patients on an insured or self-pay basis. Self-pay patients will be provided with a fixed price quotation prior to treatment. Insured patients are advised to check their cover details with the insurer directly prior to attending their initial consultation.
