The good news ……... There are solutions for those suffering from all above problems!!!!
Evaluation of venous disease is painless, quick and easy. Dr Gideon van Wyk, Christelle de Bruin and Rene Gerber (both sonographers)
at Vein Solution Rooms at Flora Clinic and Stellenbosch will perform a simple noninvasive test called a venous duplex (ultrasound) as a
vein mapping to diagnose the problematic vein segments or segment.
Next, we will tailor a treatment plan specific to your anatomy and desired outcome. The first line of therapy includes conservative options
such as leg elevation, and compression stockings. Conservative therapy may initially help ease the pain of varicose veins but will not
provide definitive treatment. If conservative treatment fails, treatment of the underlying problem can be offered and is covered by most
Medical Schemes.
There are currently several minimally-invasive office therapies available. Endovenous radio-frequency ablation used to close the saphenous
vein and eliminate reflux. The T.I.R.S (Terminal Interruption of the Reflux Source) is new technique to heal most venous ulcers in
4 to 8 weeks.
Important: The first screening is free; your medical aid will only be charged if the procedure was done and there is a

Vejay Ramlakan, has written his own account of those days. This is an extract
