Summer is just around the corner in Nelson and Blenheim and we can help you make the most of the fabulous ‘Top of the South’ lifestyle. It’s not too late for varicose vein treatment so you can enjoy biking, boating and beach days as part of your 2021 summer staycation.
Step into summer with Varicose Vein Treatment:
If you thought you were going to have to avoid wearing shorts again this summer then think again! There’s still time for varicose vein treatment in Nelson or Blenheim.
Five Steps to Vein Treatment Success:
STEP 1: If you’re suffering from unsightly varicose veins and/or painful, tired or heavy legs, the first thing to do is pick up the phone. Book a no-obligation, Doctor’s Vein Assessment and Scan. You have nothing to lose, we offer this as a complimentary service. We’ll get you booked in as soon as we can.
STEP 2: Attend your initial appointment, we can arrange this at our Nelson clinic or at The Churchill Private Hospital in Blenheim. If you live some distance from either location, Dr David can also offer you a virtual consultation. At this appointment, you’ll get the chance to ask any burning questions and discuss treatment options.
- Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) uses specialised ultrasound equipment to guide injections of sclerosant which permanently closes the vein. This procedure is virtually painless, so requires no anaesthesia.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), the gold standard for varicose vein treatment, again, requires no general anaesthesia or hospital stay.
- Venaseal Glue is another option for a small number of patients with advantages Dr David explains to those who he feels will benefit from this treatment.
STEP 3: Attend your surgery appointment. You’ll walk in and less than two hours later you’ll walk right out. You can even drive home afterwards.
STEP 4: After two weeks, you’ll be able to discard your post-treatment compression stockings and your legs are ready for their summer debut!
STEP 5: We’ll schedule your follow-up appointments with Dr David. These are all included in your quoted treatment costs.
