Our Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mr Tom Nicholas offers private EVLA, foam sclerotherapy and surgical removal of varicose veins.

Privately you will benefit from no waiting lists or long delays for an EVLA at Fairfield Independent Hospital.

We work with most insurance companies, and offer competitive self-pay prices if you do not have health insurance.

What is Endovenous Laser Ablation used for?

EVLA is used to treat any underlying venous reflux problem which might contributing to the presence of varicose veins.

How much does Endovenous Laser Ablation cost?

The cost of EVLA will depend on the number of varicose veins being treated, their severity and whether one or two legs are being treated.

It is a ‘walk-in, walk out’ procedure so you will be able to leave the clinic after treatment.

We do not offer free cosmetic consultations for varicose veins.

Before considering surgery, it is important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with EVLA.

During your initial consultation you will be able to explain your medical history, and discuss the potential risks of EVLA with the surgeon before making a decision.
