Treating varicose veins.
Tired, aching legs? Varicose veins can not only be unsightly, but can cause significant symptoms that can affect your lifestyle or work. They may also occasionally lead to serious complications in some people.
Dr Magee has a special interest in the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins and venous disease. Potential advantages of “endovenous” treatments over traditional vein stripping include reduced invasiveness, less scarring, lower complication rates, and a quicker recovery.
Dr Magee offers a full suite of treatment options, including the convenience of “walk in, walk out” in-room treatments, and day surgery treatment for those who prefer a single step treatment for more severe varicose veins or those who prefer to be asleep. Day surgery treatment also potentially enables access to private health insurance rebates to assist with the cost of treatment if eligible. Vascular surgeons are the only specialty group uniquely qualified to give you both options.
Treatment options are individualised to provide the best results, and often a combination of different treatments is recommended. Dr Magee also has expertise in the management of pelvic varicose veins in women, including pelvic congestion syndrome and labial varicose veins.

- Endovenous ablation (“laser” / radiofrequency ablation)
- Venaseal “glue”
- Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy
- Phlebectomies (also known as avulsions)
- Pelvic embolization and sclerotherapy
