Recurrent Varicose Veins

Some people will develop new varicose veins in the years following treatment regardless of the method used for treatment. This is less likely if your veins are treated by a vein specialist who is able to accurately identify the problem with pre-treatment duplex ultrasound scanning and who has expertise in all available treatments in order to tailor the treatment specifically to you.


Currently, about 22% patients sent to hospital with varicose veins has had vein treatment before. Even though recurrent varicose veins can be complex from an anatomical perspective the majority of patients can be treated using one of the minimally invasive treatment methods and without resorting to further surgery.
