I am wondering whether to have clarivein treatment on my varicose

Resolved Question:

I am wondering whether to have clarivein treatment on my varicose vein. My doctor told me years ago I could not have it stripped out on the NHS, so I have been saving up, but I fear I may not have enough for one varicose vein and a whole lot of thread veins. Please advise.

Hi Dr Thomas,

Thank you for your reply. Are there any negative findings so far regarding clarivein treatment?

Is it suitable for thread veins, too?

So what would the cost be for one varicose vein and hundreds of thread veins, especially on my ankles?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
I gave you the range above.
It is going to vary depending on the place, the doctor, etc.
You are going to have to have an exam to get an exact cost and to see exactly what they can do.
You will know after the initial evaluation.
