At BMI The Runnymede Hospital we offer a range of varicose vein treatments carried out by our experienced Consultant Vascular Surgeons.
Varicose veins are often enlarged and raised veins most commonly found in the leg. They are usually blue or purple in colour and appear lumpy and/or twisted.
The symptoms of varicose veins can include:
- Tired, aching, heavy and restless legs
- Swollen feet and ankles – especially after standing for long periods
- Leg cramps – often at night
- Unsightly, lumpy or bulging veins
- Thread veins, changes in skin colour (red/brown) and skin ulcers
What are the benefits of private varicose veins treatment?
Private varicose vein treatment can make a huge difference to a person’s confidence and the activities they choose to take part in. Treatment removes unsightly varicose veins and alleviates your symptoms - it should also help prevent further complications that varicose veins may cause.
As part of private varicose vein treatment your BMI consultant vascular surgeon will complete an initial assessment of your veins and perform a scan. This will enable the consultant to give you more detail on the severity of your varicose veins and which procedure is most suitable for you.
