Treatment of painful, swollen varicose veins used to require a surgical procedure called vein stripping. This involved a complete removal of the vein from the leg under general anaesthetic with a painful 2 to 4 weeks recovery period. Thankfully, there is now a much better option.

Here at The Cooden Medical Group, we perform a revolutionary technique called ‘endovenous laser ablation’ or EVLA; a minimally invasive and highly effective procedure which effectively destroys the veins from the inside.

Walk-in, Walk-out Treatment

No surgery is required for this ‘walk-in, walk-out’ treatment and the entire procedure can be performed by our specialist consultant in less than an hour under local anaesthetic in our comfortable, state of the art facility.

Carried out on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic, the EVLA procedure is performed according to our own tested protocol. EVLA is a minimally invasive, ultrasound-guided procedure involving endovenous ablation of the affected saphenous vein. At Cooden Veins, our EVLA protocol uses our micropuncture technique and the laser is introduced to the diseased vein which is then ablated. The lasering is painless but you will get some discomfort from the local anaesthetic injections. Experience and skill is required to do this quickly and with the minimumal discomfort.

Initial Consultation For Endovenous Laser Ablation

All our vein treatments require an initial, investigative consultation. We will perform a range of comprehensive diagnostic tests and scans, based on a foundation of Duplex Ultrasound Scanning, in preparation of any treatment plan. Here we will review your symptoms and exclude the likelihood of a deep vein thrombosis. Further to this, we can then create a unique treatment plan for you and accurately outline the type and cost of your procedure.
