Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery’s specialist vascular surgeon treats diseases and conditions relating to arteries and veins such as varicose veins, diabetic foot and chronic wounds. Varicose veins occur due to valve weaknesses in the superficial venous system. It can happen at any age. This results in unsightly vein bulges, increasing throbbing pains and discomfort, and in more severe cases actual bleeding and leg ulcerations. The cause of the problem needs to be fully evaluated and delineated in order to treat it long term.
