Southwest Veins - Varicose Veins Removal


Varicose Veins Removal

Jamie Barwell is a consultant vascular surgeon who has treated over 1000 patients with varicose vein problems using open surgical techniques and foam sclerotherapy.


At Southwest Veins, Jamie offers the minimally invasive Foam Sclerotherapy treatment.

Minimally-invasive techniques are now the mainstay of varicose vein treatments. They treat the veins from the inside (‘Endo-venous’) and seek to destroy the lining of the vein (the endothelium). Without the endothelium the vein can no longer function so it ceases to transmit blood and shrinks down to become a fibrous cord of scar tissue. Various techniques involve different modalities to achieve this endothelium destruction (known as ablation).

Endo-venous techniques can be broadly divided into catheter-based and non-catheter-based.

What to expect

Jamie will apply a light compression bandage as far as the knee and then strips of elastic adhesive compression for the treated thigh areas and ask you to remove these after 48 hours. They will soak off in the bath and this process will be easier for men if they have shaved their thigh prior to the procedure.

Foam sclerotherapy triggers an inflammatory response ultimately leading to the destruction of the vein endothelium which is the lining of the vein wall. This inflammatory response is known as phlebitis and is the mode of action of the treatment rather than a complication.
