Prior to your initial consultation with Doctor Kemp, the receptionist will ask you to complete a questionnaire so that details of your past medical history, medications and allergies can be recorded. During the consultation, the doctor will obtain your history and then examine your legs with illuminated magnification followed by a Doppler or ultrasound examination. It can then be determined whether or not your problem is related to spider veins or varicose veins. There is a close relationship between the development of varicose veins and spider veins so that a considerable percentage of people with spider veins have underlying incompetent Saphenous veins and ultrasound allows us to detect this. If your family or you have a significant history of blood clots then tests for thrombosis might be requested. For patients at higher risk of blood clots we sometimes give an injection of an anti-clotting agent (Clexane) just prior to treatment to reduce any risk of DVT. Patients who have varicose veins require longer consultations as the ultrasound examination is much more detailed. As all underlying Saphenous veins and their tributaries are mapped and then marked as either competent or incompetent. Following your assessment it can then be decided whether your treatment is medical or cosmetic. You will then have the opportunity to discuss the recommended treatment pathway and ask Doctor Kemp any questions that you may have regarding your condition or the procedures. An individual treatment plan showing the number and type of treatment sessions required will then be created, this also provides you with an accurate estimate of costs.
