As a specialist clinic, we offer all forms of treatment including an onsite hospital. * Fully licensed and Souther n Cross Affliated Phone 09 444-5858 or visit: www.veins.co.nz Help is at hand for varicose vein sufferers Skilled team member: Nicki Kerin is an ultrasonographer at The Vein Clinic and has undergone advanced training. Painful, unsightly varicose veins can cause no end of unnecessary angst and embarrassment for sufferers. However, help is at hand in the form of the experi- enced team at The Vein Clinic in Glenfield. At the Vein Clinic they offer an array of different treatment options for varicose veins and using their expertise, the team are able to help you decide which one is best for you after considering factors like anatomy, lifestyle, health and your budget. Modern management includes surgery, but also non-surgical treatments. They are effective, intrude little into lifestyles, and are done on an outpatient basis,'' says Dr Heather McIntyre, a vein physician at the clinic. Treatment options available include: Compression stockings and conservative sympto- matic treatment Surgery Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) Fluoroscopic ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (FUGS) and direct microsclerotherapy for smaller veins. As we have experience in all treatments and options, including what happens if nothing is done, this is discussed with a patient and often the patient will make the final decision on which path to take,'' she says. Our experience with EVLA now numbers over 1000 procedures. Initially the recurrence rates were higher than for surgery at about 20 percent. But with increased operator experience and improved apparatus devel- opments in EVLA, there has been an improved patient experience and lower recurrence rates than rival surgery.'' However, all treatments do have a recurrence rate, as no treatment can stop the inborn tendency to develop varicose veins,'' warns Dr McIntyre. Duplex Ultrasound also provides an important tool in the management of varicose veins. Ultrasound demonstrates anatomy, where leaking valves are, reflux characteristics, and is also used for the detection and management of deep vein clots (DVT). Ultrasonographers undergo special training in vascular ultrasound. The Vein Clinic's ultrasonographers, Judy Tee and Nicki Kerin, have both had this advanced train- ing. To find out more about which course of action might be best for you and your varicose veins, why not make an appointment today? The Vein Clinic is located at 212 Wairau Rd, Glenfield.
