Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment

From The Veins Doctor – Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment

Dr Omar offers a variety of effective various varicose veins treatments based on individual patients’ needs or simply said Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment. 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 maximum level of comfort throughout the treatment.

Non-invasive varicose vein 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  a Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment: 

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

Dr Omar will tailor your individual varicose vein treatment plan to the results of your Doppler-ultrasound scan. The plan may involve a combination of any of the above procedures.

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 Non-invasive Varicose Vein Treatment, a very effective non-invasive procedure using ultrasound to treat varicose veins. 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.

Among the medical profession, HIFU is considered a truly ‘disruptive technology’ and is as disruptive today as endovenous surgery was 20 years ago when it started to replace commonly used vein stripping procedures to treat varicose veins.

What advantages does HIFU treatment have?

A very positive aspect of HIFU is that the treatment is far less painful and way less traumatic than traditional procedures – even than laser, leaving almost no bruises. Suitable patients will find this treatment method very convenient too because they can simply walk into the clinic, receive their HIFU treatment, and then immediately walk out again and return to their normal daily activities.

  • Patients receiving this treatment require only a small amount of local anesthetic, which won’t affect their ability to walk.
  • HIFU is less painful than endovenous surgery, allowing patients to return to work immediately after treatment.

Reduced risk for patients

Because the procedure does not involve inserting surgical instruments into the vein, it does not pose any risks to patients from tool fragments, body tissues breaking off, or clots forming and becoming lodged in the lungs or heart.

The treatment is administered from outside of the body, posing no bleeding risks for anticoagulated patients.

HIFU offers a great surgery-free alternative treatment

HIFU offers great alternative treatments for varicose veins in a non-invasive, yet 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. 

HIFU treatment uses small needles to apply a small amount of anesthetic, which can be easily administered while the patient is distracted

Unlike tumescence injections, this treatment requires only a very small amount of anesthetic, making it much more comfortable and manageable for those who dislike the discomfort of local anesthetic injections with big volumes.

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.
