Varicose veins are a common problem, affecting up to 1 in 3 adults in their lifetime. They are usually a sign of an underlying venous insufficiency.
Thread veins can appear anywhere on the body but are mostly evidenced on the legs and face. They are more common than varicose veins, affecting up to 80% of adults.
Leg ulcers appear as broken skin in the lower leg or feet. We have been successfully treating venous leg ulcers for over 20 years.

If you book an initial consultation with Mr Wijesinghe at Veincentre Southampton, all your future appointments will be with Mr Wijesinghe in Southampton.
Occasionally Mr Wijesinghe may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on every weekday even if a previous appointment was on a different weekday. If you are unable to attend one of Mr Wijesinghe’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken.
