"Prior to Glasgow Vein Clinic, patients in the West of Scotland and surrounding areas had only one choice of treatment for varicose veins - surgery.  Vein treatment technology has advanced considerably in recent years, with new minimally invasive treatments now offered instead of surgery for most patients. Glasgow Vein Clinic was set-up to providing a consultant-led, specialist varicose vein service where patients can be assured of expert advice, have access to a wide range of highly effective, modern treatments within the setting of BMI's Ross Hall Hospital, and has since expanded to include Carrick Glen hospital in Ayr and Kings Park hospital in Stirling"
