Vein treatment stops nasty complications

by | Sep 4, 2014

Dr Paraskevas, a Fellow of the Australasian College of Phlebology, said complications could include leg swelling, dermatitis, venous ulcers, and clots. “The traditional treatment for varicose veins has been venous stripping under general anaesthetic,” Dr Paraskevas said. This invasive procedure has deterred many patients from having their veins treated. “There are now alternative treatments on a walk-in, walk-out basis and which can be performed in the safety and comfort of the private clinical setting by trained specialised vein doctors.”

At his Vein Health Medical Clinic, Dr Paraskevas, is entirely dedicated to treating varicose veins. He has a special interest in duplex ultrasound investigation of venous disease and offers treatment of large, symptomatic varicose veins and venous ulcers. He also treats less problematic but cosmetically unsightly spider veins and reticular veins.

Surgical and non-surgical procedures offered include direct vision sclerotherapy for blue and spider veins, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy to treat larger veins, ambulatory phlebectomy for larger surface veins, and endovenous laser ablation, for veins that in the past required surgical stripping.

All patients undergo a comprehensive diagnosis and careful follow-up to ensure the best results.
