Specialised Vascular Ultrasound
Western Sydney Vascular has a state-of-the-art Doppler ultrasound clinic in both our Westmead Private and Norwest Private rooms.
Ask your GP for a direct referral to our clinic which is open 8:00am-4.30pm Monday to Friday (P 8622 1455). All scans can be bulk-billed, however multiple scans on the same day may attract a fee. Scans and procedures we perform can be found here.
Ultrasounds involve no radiation and can help to identify blockages (stenosis), abnormalities like plaque or blood clots (DVT), narrowing of vessels and evaluating varicose veins. Evidence shows that ultrasounds performed by experienced vascular sonongraphers have a greater accuracy rate.
Ultrasound can also be used to detect tumours and malformations and identify specific areas where blood flow is reduced.
More Vein, Less Pain!
A one-stop-vein shop – we provide imaging, assessment
We treat the gamut of deep venous conditions including DVT (deep vein thrombosis), venous obstruction and also offer many surgical solutions for spider veins through to large and painful veins that left untreated increase the risk of blood clot and the risk of skin damage including pigmentation and ulceration.
Ask us today about the latest treatments for varicose veins including laser therapy that destroys and seal veins or phlebectomy, a day procedure that is minimally invasive and uses a small scalpel to remove varicose veins that are very close to the skin surface of the leg. In more advanced cases vein stenting may be undertaken.
