Where is ALVC vein clinic located?
We are in the Edgecliff Centre business tower. Suite 313, 203 New South Head Road. Edgecliff. Above Edgecliff railway station and also Aldi carpark which offer 1.5hrs free parking.
How do I make an appointment ?
As our centre specialises in diagnosis and treatment of veins. The preferred process is that on your first appointment you should allow 1 hr for a three phase appointment :
- Professor Ibrahim will see you for a personal consult
- A Doppler ultrasound mapping of your legs will be done by a specialist vascular ultrasonographer onsite and will be reported on immediately.
- You will then see the Prof a second time at the same appointment for explanation of the findings and advice on treatment.
What treatments do you offer?
ALVC vein clinic has been operating for over 12 years. We offer all treatments for varicose, spider and vein disease. Please visit our website for detailed info www.alvc.com.au
All treatments are done by the Professor and the medical team.
Do you treat spider veins?
Yes we do treat spider veins. We aim to explain by comparison, that the spider veins are the tiny branches of a tree, spider veins are often caused because of disease and pressure in the larger trunks of that tree and so it is important to make sure that the trunks are healthy otherwise just treating the spider veins is not effective and sometimes dangerous in missing warning signs of trunk disease.
Do you offer VenaSeal treatment?
ALVC clinic was the first clinic to offer this treatment and Prof Ibrahim has carried out more VenaSeal treatments to date then any other practitioner. The team has presented results at local and international conferences and instructs other Medicos on the procedure of treatment.
Tell me about the treatments
Treatment for varicose veins is a walk in / walk out procedure which usually takes approximately 1- 1.5hr per leg. There is very minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. There is no need for a general anaesthetic , hospitilisation and usually no need for any pain relief. All procedures are done by the Prof and our team in the ALVC clinic with normal activity immediately following the treatment. We recommend compression stockings to be worn for a short time following the treatment as a secondary conservative best result measure.
