"Varicose vein surgery"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

Had a longstanding and troublesome varicose vein stripped from my right leg in September 2014. I was treated efficiently and with consideration by all involved in my visit which was a one day surgery. For me the whole thing including the following recovery period at home was painless and troublefree. I cannot thank the staff at the Bournemouth hospital enough for their dedication and care.
