I went to see my G.P. because I had unsightly thread veins on both legs and it was getting worse. He recommended Mr Gajraj at the Melbury Clinic. Mr Gajraj checked for any underlying cause and then treated the problem in three sessions. I am very pleased with the results and now feel comfortable wearing shorts and swimwear. The procedure was virtually painless, the worst part was having to wear tight stockings for three weeks - a small price to pay. G.A Hobbs
Both my chosen profession and hereditory factors have contributed to long standing vascular disease. As my varicose veins were causing symptoms that reqiured treatment I went to see Mr Gajraj on word of mouth recommendation. I was struck by his kind and easy manner. He gave me all the information I needed to make an informed decision concerning the way forward. On the day of surgery I was particularly nervous and he spent some time helping me through. The after care was as carefull as all that had gone before. My legs have now healed and I am asymptomatic - excellent. The two great bonuses now are that I can go swimming again with confidence and wear a fashion shoe. Thank you for a job well done. E Bardolph. Hampshire.

I developed varicose veins in my early 30's.They were extemely pronounced.This resulted in me feeling unable to swim with my young children and never wearing skirts! I also experienced a heavy dragging feeling in my legs at the end of the day and I was also concerned that they may lead to further complications. I was initially refused treatment by the NHS,as they worsened I was offered surgical stripping,but I declined this due to fear of the operation! I can truly say that visiting Mr Gajraj was the best thing I could have done! The results have been truly incredible.The treatment is quick and relatively painless and the results are amazing.It was lovely to meet a Dr who actually took varicose veins seriously and recognises the problems they can cause.I have recommended him widely and know of 3 people who have had similar results by having foam sclerotherapy after seeing the transformation of my legs! I now many years on from my initial treatment visit him yearly for check-ups/any top up treatments required.He is always friendly and listens to/discusses any concerns.A fantastic professional.

I first developed varicose veins in my early twenties. when my employment required be to stand for long periods of time on concreate floors. Hereditary wise, I was always going to be at risk of vascular problems as my father also had varicose vains and indeed the weakness is now apparent in my children. Now, forty years on a cluster of vains purtruded from inside my right thigh like a bunch of grapes. As I am a keen Triathlete which involves swimming, cycling and running it had become embarrising getting into training gear and showing my legs. I visited my GP who advised that, as I was in no real pain and as it was mainly cosmetic it could NOT be corrected on the NHS. As she was aware through other patients of Mr Gajraj work, she recommended that I contacted the Melbury Clinic. At my first consultation with Mr Gajraj he advised that the VNUS ClosureFAST procedure would be the most suitable for the condition. On the day of the treatment I arrived at the Clinic at 8am after taking some medication to relax me and consent form signing, the procedure got under way by 9am.After an hour and a quarterand with no more discomfort than going to the dentist, it was all done. I then had to lie still with my legs up until mid day then off home. Job Done! I suffered no post- procedure pain but the area where the procedure had taken place showed traces of deminishing bruising for six weeks. After the procedure, I asked Mr Gajraj when I could resume training, his answer was " you will know when you are ready" and he was right. After six weeks I now feel I can get back to a full training programme . Great Job, I wish the VNUS ClosureFast method had been available years ago......Stewart Palmer
