Are your modern treatments suitable if I have previously had old-fashioned surgery?

You can undergo EVLA treatment if you’ve had your veins surgically “stripped” previously.

We treat a high percentage of patients who have had already had their veins stripped. This is due to the high recurrence rate following the old-fashioned stripping method for varicose vein removal.

Recurrence rates with EVLA are much lower. After properly performed EVLA it is uncommon to get new varicose veins appearing. Around 3% of our patients return with some degree of recurrent varicose veins after EVLA. Further EVLA treatment is not often required, and the veins can be treated with just foam sclerotherapy.

It is common after traditional surgery for veins to ‘grow back’ but fortunately very rare after properly performed EVLA which has targeted all sources for the veins.
