Varicose veins are a common problem experienced by up to 25% of the population.
It is a common misconception that varicose veins are purely a cosmetic problem. Whilst for many the appearance of varicose veins are understandably a major issue, varicose veins can cause many problems including pain (ache/heaviness), skin rashes, bleeding and in some people skin ulcers that can be very difficult to heal.
The treatment options depend on which types of veins are causing trouble, and only a Specialist Vascular Surgeon can offer you ALL of the treatment options, so that you can decide the best choice for your circumstances.
Post-operative discomfort is usually minimal and most patients are able to be treated as a day case avoiding a night in hospital.
Dr. Hansen will fully discuss with you all of the options available to treat your individual veins, the pros and cons of each, and he will recommend the optimal treatment strategy for you.
