Private Varicose Vein Clinic in Dorchester
This clinic will allow patients with varicose veins to have a consultation with a Vascular Consultant and have a venous duplex scan on the same day, to determine the best treatment options for them during the same appointment.
Both BMI The Winterbourne and Harbour Hospitals offer a number of minimally invasive ‘walk in walk out’ varicose veins treatments such as VNUS Closure Procedure, Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) and foam Sclerotherapy, Clarivein mechanochemical (MOCA) ablasion, Venaseal endoluminal bioadhesive closure, Phlebectomy or combination treatments.
Private Varicose Vein Treatments offered in Dorchester
The benefits of these treatments over more traditional surgical stripping approach are believed to be:
- Procedures are carried out in the outpatients department and patients are able to go home within a short time of their procedure
- Procedures are carried out with local anaesthetic so no general anaesthetic or need for overnight stay
- Procedures are performed by needle puncture techniques meaning no incisions and minimal scarring
- Minimal pain and bruising and faster return to normal activities
After the venous duplex scan your consultant will discuss with you whether one of our minimally invasive varicose vein treatments is suitable for you.
They will also be able to let you know the price for this procedure.
