Varicose veins treatment

Varicose veins are swollen dark blue or purple veins that lie under the skin. Without treatment, varicose veins will not get better, but a number of treatment options are available to cater for the needs of different patients.

Varicose veins treatment from Bupa

Depending on the type of treatment or procedure needed to treat your varicose veins, they may be performed under general or local anaesthetic.

Procedures include ligation and stripping, endovenous laser and radiofrequency ablation, phlebectomy, transilluminated powered phlebectomy and liquid or foam sclerotherapy.

With Bupa, all patients undergoing treatment for varicose veins receive an aftercare package. This includes a follow-up appointment with a consultant, as well as readmission into hospital within 30 days of the initial procedure, should it be needed.

In the unlikely event of any complications arising from your procedure, the cost of additional treatment required may also be covered subject to the terms and conditions of the package that you choose.
