Vascular medicine & Vein Clinic

Private vascular medicine and treatment for veins and varicose veins is available at The Edinburgh Clinic. We offer fast access to appointments with consultant vascular surgeons for the assessment, diagnosis and management of health problems relating to your arteries, veins and lymphatic system. We offer a range of vascular diagnostic services, including:

  • assessment of venous insufficiency
  • claudication assessment (a type of leg pain caused by narrowing of the blood vessels in the legs)
  • deep venous thrombosis risk assessment
  • detection of abdominal aortic aneurysm and management
  • fistula assessment in kidney disease
  • lymphoedema assessment (swelling in the body caused by fluid retention)
  • stroke assessment due to carotid disease

Consultants offer assessment and treatment for the following:

  • varicose veins*
  • thread and spider veins
  • arteriovenous fistula for dialysis

During an out-patient consultation, you can relax within the calming, unique and quality clinical environment at The Edinburgh Clinic. In one of our peaceful consulting rooms your consultant will discuss your medical history with you and carry out a physical assessment and arrange any diagnostic tests necessary.

At The Edinburgh Clinic your consultant has access to on-site diagnostic imaging, including ultrasound conducted by consultant interventional radiologists for subspecialist vascular imaging. Your consultant can also arrange blood testing for further investigation of any vascular health concerns. If treatment is recommended, surgical procedures can be carried out in our on-site day-case operating theatre.

*You can self-refer to private varicose veins treatment if you choose to self-pay. All other vascular consultation and treatment requires a GP referral.
