Client Review: Sclerotherapy

“I would like to thank Dr. Malherbe and his staff of Lezara Physician Directed Clinic here in Squamish for the excellent treatment of my varicose veins.

I had a very severe case of varicose veins on one of my legs for quite some time.  I suffered from pain, itch, and swelling in that leg.  I even had children stop me and ask me what was wrong with my leg asking me if it hurt. I would always tell them that I was ok and that it didn’t hurt and that the good doctor would fix it one day and that seemed to make them happy.

I finally made the phone call and made an appointment to have a consultation with Dr. Malherbe, had an ultrasound done on that leg to see exactly what was going on with the veins and then he carefully and patiently explained all my options to me.

We decided to go with a process called Sclerotherapy which is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins.  It involves an injection of a solution directly into the affected veins.

After just 3 treatments, the procedure was successful.  The veins have collapsed, the clotted blood has been removed and I can’t believe how good my leg looks and feels.  There is still is a bit of bruising left but with time, that will fade.  I do not need more treatments.  My leg no longer hurts, no longer itches and the swelling is greatly reduced and my friends and family are amazed at how good my leg looks and no one stops me when I am out asking what is wrong with my leg. I am no longer embarrassed to wear shorts in summer or wear my bathing suit at the pool.

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the procedure when I started but with the support of family and friends and the excellent care and skills of Dr. Malherbe and his staff, each procedure got a little easier.  Before I knew it, the procedures were over.

I am so thankful to Dr. Malherbe and his staff.

So for any of you out there wanting to get rid of those nasty varicose veins, please don’t wait as long as I did. Make that phone call, get a consultation and see if you are a candidate for Sclerotherapy. I wish I would have done it years ago.” – Francine Moquin
