Endovenous Laser Ablation
Dr Lisa Marks is now offering Endovenous laser ablation of varicose veins using the Cooltouch® laser at the Brighton Day Surgery. This is a non-surgical alternative for the treatment of large Varicose veins. It is a walk-in walk-out procedure performed under local anaesthetic. This procedure is a highly effective alternative to stripping surgery for varicose veins. It has an approximately 95% success rate at 5 yrs. It is performed in our state of the art day surgery facility.
It is performed using ultrasound guidance with 1 or 2 excisions less than 3 mm long. Associated varicose vein branches are treated with ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy.
Post treatment requirements include walking and compression stockings for 2 weeks. The procedure allows return to work and most usual activities the day after the procedure.
Dr Marks will arrange pre-treatment ultrasound mapping of your varicose veins and will design a treatment plan suited to your pattern of veins.
