What are varicose veins?
Veins carry blood up your leg back up against gravity. The process is aided by many one way valves to help the upward flow. Both legs contain a system of deep veins, which are buried within the muscles of your leg, and a system of superficial veins that run just underneath your skin.
Sometimes weakness in the walls of the superficial veins cause them to enlarge, their valves then fail to work properly and blood can flow in the wrong direction. The result is a build-up of pressure in the veins, which bulge out as varicose veins.
Mr Abisi offers minimally invasive treatment for your varicose veins known as Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter is inserted in the source superficial vein (feeding the varicose veins), and positioned appropriately under ultrasound guidance. The catheter has an electrode that heats the walls of the vein using radiofrequency energy, which causes the vein to close off and stop blood flowing in the wrong direction.
Additionally Mr Abisi can offer additional procedure as part of the Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation to remove unsightly large veins under the skin that can develop as consequence of not treating varicose vein early this treatment is known as phlebectomies or avulsions? It involves
making 1- 2 mm cuts to directly remove varicosities on your leg.
