Varicose Veins & Vascular Clinic in Birmingham

Vascular medicine is a critical surgical subspecialty that looks to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the vascular system (also referred to as the circulatory system), which is responsible for carrying blood and lymph throughout the body. At Midland Health’s vascular clinic in Birmingham, we have a team of experts who can diagnose and treat issues with the circulation and vein function, including arteries and veins that are diseased. 

We regularly help patients with a range of vascular concerns from varicose veins, spider veins, venulectasias, restless leg syndrome, lymphoedema, minor varicose lesions and leg ulcers. Our vascular consultants and surgeons also offer treatments for venous insufficiency at all stages of its development. 

If you have varicose veins or spider veins that are causing you concern, it is paramount they are treated before they develop and restrict your blood flow more considerably. This is why our vascular experts offer consultation at short notice where they will compassionately advise you on the best course of action. 

At Midland Health’s state-of-the-art private vascular clinic in Edgbaston Village, you will have access to high-quality healthcare available without doctor referrals or lengthy waiting times, allowing you to benefit from the medical expertise you need with pay-as-you-go treatment systems.

Vascular Issues We Can Help With

Our highly-qualified vascular team in Birmingham can diagnose and treat a wide variety of venous conditions and problems, including but not limited to: 

  • Claudication (pain in calves on walking) – This is due to the ‘furring’ of arteries in the legs which can lead to problems with walking long distances. 
  • Aneurysms – A weak spot or ballooning in the artery wall. The wall of the aneurysm can become thin enough to rupture and, in these situations, need urgent attention. 
  • Aortic Aneurysms – Occur when a bulge appears in the wall of a major blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart and towards the rest of the body.
  • Lymphoedema – A chronic, long-term condition that demonstrates issues within the lymphatic system as it causes the body’s tissues to swell, particularly the arms and legs.
  • Minor Varicose Lesions – Also known as birthmarks, are common abnormalities of the skin falling into three categories: Hemangiomas, Vascular Malformations, and Pyogenic Granulomas.
  • Restless Leg Syndrome – This can be a direct symptom of venous insufficiency in the legs.
  • Spider Veins – Medically referred to as Telangiectasias, spider veins are pink and red broken or dilated blood vessels at the surface of the skin.
  • Varicose Veins – Swollen veins that become visible on the legs due to leaking valves are known as varicose veins. They can cause discomfort including aching, itching and throbbing, as well as causing swollen ankles and skin discolouration. If left untreated they can go on to cause leg ulcers. 
  • Venous Leg Ulcers – After a minor injury, there is a risk of problems developing with blood circulation in your leg veins. As the blood pressure increases here, it can damage tiny blood vessels and cause your skin to become extremely fragile. 

Our Vascular Services & Treatments

Midland Health has a team of leading specialists in vascular surgery who can advise you on the best treatment for your vascular concerns and venous insufficiency. At our vascular clinic in Birmingham, we offer a range of treatments and minimally invasive procedures, including:

Sclerotherapy

Used to treat small visible veins and spider veins, sclerotherapy injects a sclerosing agent into the intended veins. This agent has a sticky consistency and closes these veins, causing the blood flow to be blocked.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Similar to sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent foam (Sodium Tetradecyl Sulphate) is injected into the affected veins to encourage them to clot.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

A minimally-invasive treatment that involves your surgeon using a medical-grade laser wire to heat the vein under ultrasound imagery. This non-surgical procedure does not require general anaesthetic and allows patients to return to their normal routine the same day. The EVLT treatment has a 98% success rate in treating varicose veins, with most patients seeing an instant improvement.

Our Vascular Clinical Team

Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. As a Charing Cross & Westminster Medical School and University of London graduate (MBBS, Master of Surgery (MS), MRCSEd, FRCSEd), Alok has built up a wealth of experience across all areas of vascular surgery. His training has taken him to hospitals across the globe, including Essex, Norfolk, Norwich, London and Westmead Hospital in Australia, to enhance his endovascular surgery.

His special interests lie in using minimally invasive treatment options and foam sclerotherapy to remedy varicose veins, aneurysms, carotid artery disease and lower limb bypass, focusing on the condition of diabetics. His work in the latter led him to instigate Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s multidisciplinary diabetic foot clinic, as well as the endovascular program. The main aim of the foot clinic is to reduce the chance of major amputation for these patients.

In addition, Alok is also the Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham allowing him to help train the next generation of vascular surgeons and consultants. He is also a member of the British Society of Endovascular Therapy, the British Medical Association and the European Society of Vascular Surgery.
