The Vein Clinic specialises in providing the most effective and least invasive varicose vein treatment methods available. All investigations and treatments are delivered onsite at our state-of-the-art clinic, saving you time and money.
Once you have had a thorough ultrasound and clinical examination to identify the extent and nature of your vein problem, we will be in a position to provide a tailored quote for treatment.
Health Funds - only cover more invasive vein treatment
The newer vein treatments including endovenous laser have been designed and classified as an outpatient procedure, this is to reduce overall costs on the health care system (admission fees, bed fees, theatre fees, anaesthetist fees etc.). Therefore, the cost of these procedures is not covered by private health insurance.
There is a Medicare rebate for all procedures that are offered at The Vein Clinic, with the exception of spider vein treatment.
SCLEROTHERAPY CLINICS: There are other options
There are some clinics that offer a “one size fits all” approach to varicose vein treatment. They offer “foam sclerotherapy” as a stand-alone treatment for everyone and claim results are “just as good as laser without the expense”. This is not supported by the medical literature, international experts or from our experience in seeing a large number of patients coming to us for second opinion after “failed treatment” at such clinics.
