ClariVein® treatment for varicose veins at Spire Manchester

ClariVein® is a new technique for treating varicose veins performed using local anaesthetic and is undertaken as an out-patient procedure. Spire Manchester Hospital is currently the only provider offering ClariVein® treatment in the greater Manchester area.

The advantages of ClariVein®

  • Does not require general anaesthetic
  • Supports a rapid return to normal activities
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No risk of nerve damage or burns to the skin because it does not use heat.


ClariVein® differs from other minimally invasive techniques, such as laser treatment, in that you do not need multiple injections to administer the local anaesthetic, which can make the procedure more comfortable.

How does ClariVein® work?

The consultant will use ultrasound to find the damaged vein, which is the cause of visible, bulging, varicose veins. They will then insert a port in to the vein and feed the ClariVein® probe to the top of the vein through the port. The rotating tip of the probe damages the inside of the vein, whilst spraying a sclerosant drug to cause the vein to close. 

After the procedure a compression stocking will be applied to the leg and should be worn for one week. Patients can usually go home 30 minutes after the procedure and can normally resume normal activities the same day, but it is advisable to wait 24 hours before driving.

30.11.2016 - We are holding a free, no obligation 3D virtual reality breast technology information evening for patients on Wednesday 30 November at 6.30pm with Mr Lambe.

07.07.2016 - Mr Chris Peach talks us through preventing upper limb tennis injuries. As we look forward to the Wimbledon final, the lucky few who will travel down to SW19 can dream of sunshine, strawberries and cream and enjoyable tennis, whilst the rest of the club tennis players are staying at home. For those who are continuing to play this summer, it may not be at the forefront of your minds to consider the frequency and burden of injury to the upper limb in what is a non-contact and leisurely pastime.
