Just the mention of ‘varicose vein treatment’ can conjure up disturbing thoughts of vein ‘stripping’, major surgery and extended hospital stays. Thankfully, long gone are the days of painful surgery to remove unwanted and uncomfortable veins. Dr Ganesha Param recently opened a state-of-the-art vein treatment facility in Frankston that champions the non-surgical removal of varicose and spider veins.
“We find so many people are put off seeking help for varicose veins because they fear the ‘stripping’ treatments of yesteryear,” says Dr Gan. “The reality is that technology has evolved to a point that no major surgery or general anesthetics are required. In fact, the outcomes of the new treatments are far superior to old surgery methods and patients are able to return to daily activities almost immediately.”
The Doctor Vein specialist clinic opened in August 2018 and has already treated hundreds of patients with non-surgical and non-invasive vein treatments. With a range of treatment types available from laser technology to ultrasound guided injections, Dr Gan works with patients to create bespoke treatment plans. Dr Gan finds patients seek treatment for a number of reasons, from the medically motivated because veins are causing discomfort and pain to the cosmetic to improve the physical appearance of legs . . . and sometimes a combination of the two.
“Varicose and spider veins unfortunately don’t discriminate and can affect both men and women of all ages. The great news is that treatment doesn’t need to result in lengthy recoveries and time off work or ongoing commitments. We find winter is a popular time to undertake treatment so patients can be confident and comfortable with their legs when the warmer weather arrives.”
