Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment from The Veins Doctor

Dr Omar offers a variety of effective non-invasive varicose vein treatment based on individual patient’s needs. The good news for sufferers of varicose veins is that when treated correctly using the most appropriate treatment method for the patient, the chance of recurrence of the condition is as low as 3%.

For anyone suffering from varicose veins, the treatments offered by the Veins Doctor offers a great degree of hope for a complete cure of the condition. Patients can feel very confident that they are likely to be free of varicose veins instead of believing they have to live with them permanently.

Procedures for every treatment a patient undergoes will be under local anaesthesia to ensure the maximum level of comfort throughout the treatment.

Patients are able to return to normal activities straight after the procedure therefore minimising any post surgery disruptions to daily activities. 

Doppler-Ultrasound scan

When treated by Dr Omar, the Veins Doctor, you will initially undergo a thorough examination and have a Doppler-ultrasound scan performed. This is a comprehensive scan that takes around 40 minutes to complete.

You can find out more about how a doppler-ultrasound scan works and why you need to have a comprehensive 40-minute scan rather than a quick 5-minute scan often offered by other less thorough practitioners.

Based on your results from the scan, Doctor Omar will be able to recommend the most appropriate type of varicose vein treatment to suit your particular needs. The treatment options open to you may include:

·         High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

·         Endovenous Microwave Ablation of the veins (EMWA)

·         Endovenous Laser Ablation of the veins (EVLA)

·         Transluminal Occlusion Of the Perforators (TRLOP)

·         Micro-phlebectomy

·         Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy

·         Micro sclerotherapy

The medical professional will tailor your varicose vein treatment plan based on the results of your Doppler-ultrasound scan, and it may involve a combination of any of the procedures mentioned above.

For this article, we will be taking a closer look at just one of these treatment procedures: High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU).

What is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)?

HIFU is a very effective non-invasive varicose vein treatment procedure using ultrasound. One of the greatest advantages of using HIFU when compared to some other varicose vein treatments is the non-invasive aspect of the process, so patients don’t have to undergo any surgical procedures to directly benefit from it.

HIFU is considered a truly ‘disruptive technology’ among the medical profession, and it is disrupting the field just as endovenous surgery did 20 years ago when it began replacing commonly used vein stripping procedures to treat varicose veins.

What advantages does HIFU treatment have?

HIFU is less painful and traumatic than traditional procedures, leaving no bruises, making it convenient for patients to resume daily activities immediately after treatment.

Local anesthesia is required for this treatment, but the dose is small and will not affect the patient’s ability to walk or have any lasting effects.

HIFU is less painful than endovenous surgery, allowing patients to schedule treatments during lunch breaks and return to work without requiring recovery time.

Reduced risk for patients

Varicose Vein Treatment eliminates the risks of tool fragments, body tissues breaking off, or clots forming in the lungs or heart, as surgical instruments do not insert into the

Dr Omar administers the treatment from outside the body, making it safe for anticoagulated patients and posing no risks of bleeding from surgical wounds.

HIFU treatment is safe for patients with venous leg ulcers and infections in their legs, as it can be administered straight through an ulcer.

HIFU offers a great surgery-free alternative treatment

HIFU offers a great alternative for non-invasive varicose vein treatment, yet an extremely effective way that doesn’t require open surgery. This also makes it an ideal treatment option for patients that have a fear of needles. 

During HIFU treatment, the medical professional administers a small amount of anesthetic using very tiny needles, and the patient can distract themselves easily while receiving it

Those who don’t like the discomfort of local anesthetic injections using big volumes, such as tumescence, will find this treatment much more comfortable and manageable because of the very small amount of anesthetic needed.

For patients with anxiety about medical procedures, the non-invasive aspect of HIFU treatment is very appealing. Also, the fact that the patient doesn’t need to receive HIFU treatment in an operating theatre is an advantage.
