Sudip Ray
Consultant Vascular Surgeon
Treatment of Varicose Veins

This is the commonest of the keyhole vein procedures we perform, and over a 10 year period we have treated
over 3000 patients with it. VNUS closure can usually be performed under local anaesthetic,
though sometimes patients prefer to have a small amount of sedation as well.
General anaesthesia is only required if the veins are very large or extensive.

What our Patients Say

"The aching symptoms of the veins had gone as had most of the blue discoloration
and the unsightly bulging prominent appearance of my calves is replaced by,
dare I say it a smooth, youthful looking pair of legs!”
