How it Works

Do you have tired, achy legs? It could be your veins.


Start with a FREE veins assessment with one of our Specialist Veins Surgeons or Doctors who specialise in varicose vein treatments to determine if a full consultation is required.


Full Consultation

If a Full Consultation is required, you will personally meet one of our Specialist Veins Surgeons or Doctors – that further specialise in varicose vein treatments, who will take a detailed patient history, conduct an examination and recommend whether treatment is required.


Ultrasound Mapping

To determine what type of treatment is required, an ultrasound of your varicose veins will be performed by a vascular sonographer to give a detailed map of both the superficial veins and the deep veins to provide a diagnosis. This allows for an accurate plan of the best treatment option. If there are symptoms suggestive of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) a deep vein ultrasound will also be performed which can make the diagnosis with certainty.



A treatment plan will be proposed by Surgeon/ Doctor based upon the history, examination and results of the duplex ultrasound map. Varicose vein treatment options include: Endovenous Ablation and/or Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy which are all performed by our highly experienced team of Surgeons & Doctors.


After Care and Follow Ups

You will have follow up treatments carried out by our Surgeon/ Doctors who will ensure to your received the best in expert care throughout the treatment
