If you have varicose veins and suffer from aching legs or are unhappy about their lumpy appearance, you can make an appointment at Spire Ilkley Clinic with Professor Michael Gough, a highly experienced consultant vascular surgeon.
Local appointments with a specialist vascular surgeon
If you decide to proceed with treatment, it will be undertaken by Professor Gough at Spire Leeds Hospital.
Varicose vein treatment isn't always available on the NHS, but at Spire Leeds, we have a number of procedures and treatments that can help; including non-surgical options.
Traditional surgery is available along with two minimally invasive treatments:
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT™) is performed under local anaesthetic in outpatients and involves passing a probe into a vein to seal it from within.
ClariVein® is also performed under local anaesthetic in outpatients and involves inserting a rotating catheter into the vein and releasing a drug to seal it from within.
Sclerotherapy treatment for thread veins is also available at Spire Leeds Hospital.
