Despite all the improvements in keyhole techniques, Surgery for varicose veins is still sometimes the best option. Operations can range from the very simple removal of small unsightly varicose veins under local anaesthetic to more lengthy procedures under general anaesthetic for patients who may not get the result they need by keyhole means.

Benefits of Surgery

  • No risk of skin staining or residual firm bulges that sometimes follow injections
