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.

Mr Paravastu has committed to working at Veincentre clinics on the above day. If you book an initial consultation with Mr Paravastu, all your future appointments will be with Mr Paravastu.
Occasionally, Mr Paravastu may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods.
If you are unable to attend one of Mr Paravastu’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. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.
