If you are at all worried about your leg health or are in pain, winter is a great time to book in at our leg vein clinic for a initial consultation. You will receive a complete medical examination and ultrasound investigation on your legs, I will discuss the findings with you and the best course of action. From there you will have a treatment plan is put together outlining all costs and any Medicare and health fund rebates.
Most patients require multiple sessions, usually over a few months in order to achieve optimal results. From start to finish you will be taken care of by me (Dr Nicholas Kemp) and we also offer complementary post treatment reviews for a year in order to ensure procedures are fully successful.
Booking in advance offers you the freedom to choose treatment days and accommodate work and family commitments. The Leg Vein Doctors after-hours sessions are particularly popular as the nature of our treatments means there is NO downtime and you can go straight back to work or home to cook dinner for your family!
Modern varicose vein treatments are designed to be walk-in walk-out and this is the model that has practiced in Europe and the United States for many years. General anaesthetics are discouraged because they prevent a patient from being mobile following a procedure, therefore putting them at greater risk of DVTs. Not to mention the inconvenience of not being able to drive and requiring someone to collect you.
Early booking also allows you to complete your treatment in the cooler months which is most patients preference as the compression stockings can be hidden under trousers or worn as tights(black available). Perhaps most importantly it means your legs will be ready for the beach before the next heatwave.
