What is the total cost of treatment at Veincentre?

Over 90% of our patients’ treatment plans fall into one of the below examples which outline the total costs involved in diagnosing and treating varicose and thread veins. All our prices are upfront and fixed per leg or per session, we do not have any “from” prices. Our prices include both the consultant and the clinic fee.

There is a lack of transparency with regards to pricing in most private medicine and as such we do not know of any other clinic that published the total cost for a patient’s entire diagnosis and treatment journey.

 

Useful Notes

Prior to looking into the examples, it is useful to explain that if the scan reveals reflux in the veins (caused by faulty valves in the veins) the vast majority of patients require EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation). EVLA is the NICE recommended treatment to fix the underlying cause of varicose veins i.e. destroy the veins containing faulty valves which are causing the blood to flow in the wrong direction. Once the underlying cause has been fixed, Foam Sclerotherapy and/ or Avulsions (Phlebectomies) are performed to treat the visible veins you can see on the surface of the legs. We must always treat any underlying cause first as without doing so the visible veins are highly likely to return.

 

Tailored Treatment Plan

The exact veins requiring treatment will differ from patient to patient and so every treatment plan will be unique. As such the diagnoses described below are in very basic generic terms and do not indicate the specific veins requiring treatment however this does not impact on our prices.

 

Fixed Cost EVLA per leg not per vein

It is important to note that our fixed prices for EVLA are per leg and do not increase depending on the number of veins needing EVLA or the presence of perforators.

 

Treatment Codes (OPCS)

We have included the national OPCS treatment codes for each treatment type below the examples to ease comparisons with other clinics. In addition, insurance companies require these treatment codes to confirm the treatment required and authorise accordingly.

Our Standard Patient Pathway outlines more information regarding the 4 Stages of Treatment.

*Depending on the extent of your varicose veins you may require more than one session of foam sclerotherapy. If it’s likely you’ll need an additional session the consultant may suggest you have some injections at the same time as EVLA to save you coming back again for them.

Patient has substantial visible varicose veins on the right leg with a few thread veins. The right leg aches, itches and throbs. On the left leg there are visible veins but no known symptoms other than cosmetic.

Scan reveals faulty valves (reflux) in multiple feeder veins in both legs.

EVLA treatment required to destroy the faulty valves in both legs (i.e. fix the underlying problem). Foam Sclerotherapy was undertaken at the 6-week follow-up appointment. Due to the extent of the visible veins, the patient was highly likely to require more than one session of Foam Sclerotherapy. As such, the consultant undertook sclerotherapy at the same time as the initial EVLA treatment (at a cost of £300) to save the patient returning for a further session after their initial follow-up.
