Our vision for you

  • The Dunedin-based team at Vein Consultancy is dedicated to providing a uniquely specialised and comprehensive assessment, accurate diagnosis and best-practice treatments for patients with refluxing superficial venous disease in the lower limbs.
  • Our goal is to optimally treat the current venous issues to primarily alleviate the symptoms, whilst usually also improving cosmetic appearances. 
  • Best results are obtained through individually tailored treatment plans, which often use a combination of therapies.


  • Our process of managing chronic venous insufficiency of your lower limbs involves the following pathway:
  1. Obligation-free vein assessment.
  2. Detailed ultrasound mapping.
  3. Initial treatment.
  4. Follow-up consultations for 12 months after the initial treatment.   
  • Being based locally in Dunedin means that we are available at short notice to assess you if you encounter issues during your treatment period of 12 months.
