I went to see Mr Brooks about my varicose veins and he treated them with lasers and avulsions - I am a very nervous patient and all through the procedures he put me at my ease. Avulsions are not pleasant to experience but I am over the moon with the result, I no longer have any sign of varicose veins. I am highly recommend Mr Brooks and he would be my vascular surgeon of choice should I need one in the future.
Mr Brooks is exceptional in his expertise and kindness, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering treatment for varicose veins. He carefully responded to all my queries in clear language and treated me as a 'whole person' which I very much appreciated. The treatment itself was not painful and the results have been excellent. I'm looking forward this summer to wearing shorts and sandals for the first time in decades! Kristine
Varicose Vein Surgery Left Leg - Male 64 Good initial consultation and explanation of procedures and risks, (EVLA and avulsions) felt confident to proceed Excellent procedure - talked through well during the process, supportive nurse No problems post procedure, healed quickly but tightened up after about 8 days. This could be explained better but is only a minor comment Excellent follow up appointment Very satisfied with outcome. Now able to cave ibn comfort, about to start running again
I recently had a varicous veing removed and am really happy with the results and level of service and care provided by Mr Marcus Brooks and his team. The operation went well and I was not in pain during or after. The recovery was swift and although the initial bandages and bruises looked quite dramatic they were soon gone. My only advice to others who may have this op is that I underestimated the impact of it as although it was a local anesthetic and you walk after an hour of the procedure I was pretty wiped out for a while. I recommend some time off work/duties to rest up and plan a time that isn't too busy so you can take it easy for a while after as the body needs more time to recover than I anticipated.
