Great Year For Football


Paul Nicholson is a very keen sportsman and footballer. He had unsightly varicose veins that showed when he was wearing shorts and he was concerned about injuring the veins when tackled. He wanted his veins treated, but as he runs his own business, he couldn’t afford to take much time away from his work.
The new non-surgery treatments such as Sclerotherapy and VNUS Closure (Radiofrequency Ablation) allow very rapid recovery and return to normal activities including work and sports.  For self-employed people this is vey important.  This month, Paul saw me for his final check up. 
Since having his veins treated, Paul has renewed confidence in how his leg looks and he has had a great football season.


Paul’s Story

“I own and run Haynes Butchers in Yeovil. The working day is very long and I’m on my feet nearly the whole time. I think this probably has something to do with me getting veins in the first place. They haven’t caused me any trouble so far, but I play a lot of football, I’m in shorts a lot and I just don’t like the look of them. Also, I do sometimes take a few knocks during the game, so I am worried about injuring them. With all of that in mind, I went for the VNUS procedure which Dr Gajraj told me  gives fast results and a rapid recovery from vein treatment. I’ve had a great year of football since having the veins done and I’m very pleased indeed.”

VNUS Closure

I was the first specialist in the South West to perform VNUS Closure for Varicose Veins in 2002. The procedure replaces surgical stripping and can be done in a clinic rather than a hospital and under local anaesthetic without any surgical scars. A tiny catheter is inserted into the veins which are then heated to 120 degrees Celsius. The vein is instantly sealed and then the body absorbs the vein. As there are no surgical wounds, there is no risk of wound infections and because the veins are not physically pulled out, there is virtually no pain and the recovery afterwards is very rapid.

If you are troubled by varicose veins and need a rapid solution  VNUS might be right for you. Call 0800 698 3467 for more information or visit the website contact form.
