Before and After


"I was referred to Mr Kettlewell through my BUPA insurance and after reading other reviews of his services, was content to go ahead. In short, this was the best decision I have made in a very long time.


Mr Kettlewell and his staff were outstanding. The procedures were quick, painless, and professional. Likewise, his aftercare has been exceptional.


I unreservedly and without any hesitation recommend Mr Kettlewell and the Glasgow Vein Clinic, to anyone considering elective vein surgery."

"I originally went to my local NHS hospital where they said I'd need surgery for my veins. I decided to get a second opinion and when I saw Mr Kettlewell he recommended foam sclerotherapy. I came up for two treatment sessions and didn't need any time off work. The veins were lumpy for about a month after the treatment but they've now disappeared."
