Venous Disease

Dr Chu provides treatment for a number of venous disorders including spider veins also known as starburst veins, telangiectasias and reticular veins; larger varicose veins and complications related to varicose veins such as blood clots, eczema or itching, leg swelling, aching leg discomfort, and leg ulceration.



Spider veins are only treatable with sclerotherapy or injection using a special medication – sclerosant, which causes the small veins to collapse and disappear over time. The procedure is relatively painless, takes a few minutes to do and is associated with few side effects. Larger varicose veins can be treated by a number of different options including surgery, endovenous laser and sclerotherapy.
