Problems with arteries, veins and capillaries are relatively common and can indicate serious health issues. While varicose veins may in some cases be principally a cosmetic problem, weakened blood vessels can burst, causing internal bleeding.
The Princess Grace Hospital provides a full range of treatment options, including medication, lifestyle counselling and vascular surgery. If surgery is necessary, we offer two options: laser treatment or open-type varicose vein surgery. Most patients are suited to laser treatment, which is less invasive and involves a catheter being inserted into the vein. A tiny laser is inserted into the catheter, giving off short bursts of energy as it moves along the vein, sealing it closed.
Whatever your personal history of vascular health, our specialist teams have the technology and training to provide the treatment you need, when you need it.
