Consult with one of our vein doctors

Vein Treatment Clinic

Our vein doctors are national experts in the field having published in books and also articles on vein disease. We regularly re-evaluate each treatment modalities for safety and efficacy before introducing it into our practice. The moment that we feel that it’s safe to use in our clinic, we will add it to our procedure offering. Currently, after evaluating many other treatment modalities – we consider sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, venaseal, and also laser vein ablation as the gold standard in terms of outcome and safety.

We get a lot of questions regarding doctors who advertise “no knife” surgery or “painless” sclerotherapy, there are no such thing as these treatments. These are all marketing gimmicks. All vein treatments available require the entry of the treatment chosen into your skin barrier – which will require a small incision or some minor discomfort.
