Treating varicose veins: Veins NZ

Varicose veins can be assessed, scanned, and treated all within the purpose-built medical facility, Specialists @ 256, right here in Christchurch.

“I was recommended to Peter Laws for treatment of my veins that had become quite debilitating,” one delighted patient says. “The procedure was done under local anaesthetic and was pain-free and an easy recovery. I was astonished at the quick result and how amazing I felt only a week later.”

While Specialist Vascular Surgeon Peter Laws is renowned for the investigation and treatment of varicose veins, vascular surgery involves so much more. Aneurysmal disease (a dilated blood vessel) and peripheral vascular disease (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) are two such conditions.

Aneurysmal disease is a silent progressive and potentially fatal condition that affects up to five percent of men over the age of 65. Amazingly, it can be excluded with a very simple, painless, and extremely quick ultrasound scan, and where treatment is indicated, modern techniques may see you home as soon as the next day.

Peripheral vascular disease is often symptomatic, resulting in pain in the calves on walking. When advanced, it can lead to more debilitating symptoms with pain at rest and worse. Simple blood pressure measurements can confirm or exclude this condition, leading to primary prevention advice, techniques, and measures that can often help to reduce the severity, reverse or treat the condition.

Whatever your vascular condition, Peter Laws and his team will be able to guide you through the process.
