SHOW A LEG!
Banish varicose veins at RejuvaMed’s vein treatment centre in Clitheroe, where patients can receive pioneering VenaSeal™ treatment at an incredible price, writes Sarah de Waard
Bare your legs with confidence after visiting the award-winning RejuvaMed Vein Centre. Named Best New Business in the Ribble Valley 2018 at the Ribble Valley Business Awards, the clinic, based at the historic Holmes Mill in Clitheroe, incorporates the only dedicated varicose vein treatment centre in Lancashire.
RejuvaMed has built a nationwide reputation for quality care and exceptional results. The vein centre is led by consultant vascular surgeon Rob Salaman and has established itself as a leading provider of varicose vein treatment in the north west, at prices way below Lancashire’s private hospitals.
Mr Salaman has worked both within the NHS and privately for over 29 years, and is clinical director of vascular surgery at The Royal Blackburn Hospital. He now consults privately solely at RejuvaMed and has carried out many successful procedures at the clinic, so patients can be sure they are in safe hands.
Dr Grant McKeating, medical director at RejuvaMed, tells me: “Funding for treatment for varicose veins has been rationed by the NHS, meaning that patients often have to pay for their procedure. To have a ground-breaking facility like this in Clitheroe, just a short drive from Preston and the Fylde Coast, means you can get the treatment you need quickly, in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Our appointments are available within three weeks, meaning you can get the treatment you need quickly. We don’t have the same overheads as the large private hospitals, and work more efficiently, so we can offer the same treatment for up to £2500 less. That’s a huge saving.
“There is no need to undergo expensive and risky surgery under general anaesthesia if you wish to say goodbye to your varicose veins. We welcome patients with private medical insurance and also offer interest free credit, with repayments easily affordable over 10 months.”
As well as offering radiofrequency (RF) ablation treatment for varicose veins, the vein centre has recently introduced the innovative VenaSeal™ procedure, which uses a medical adhesive rather than a heat source to seal the diseased vein. A small cut is made into the skin under local anaesthetic, and a narrow plastic tube is placed into the vein. A long catheter is then inserted through this sheath and small amounts of adhesive are then injected at intervals along the vein under ultrasound guidance.
Once the procedure is complete (which may be in as little as 20 minutes), an adhesive plaster is applied over the small cut, and you are immediately able to be up and about.
The procedure is quicker and more comfortable than RF and laser ablation, both during and after treatment, as there are fewer injections required and there is less bruising. A huge benefit of VenaSeal™ over other treatments is that you are not required to wear compression stockings afterwards, meaning you can return to normal activities immediately.
In UK clinics and hospitals, this treatment is typically offered at a price of £4000 – £5000. However, RejuvaMed has priced this treatment at only £2195 for one leg, and £2495 for both, and is the cheapest clinic for VenaSeal™ in the UK. This is less than local private hospitals charge for RF and laser ablation.
