The Scottish Vein Centre is Scotland's longest established dedicated private varicose vein clinic based in Edinburgh. We provide latest EVLT laser, VENEFIT, Clarivein and Foam sclerotherapy. Our vein clinic was the inspiration of Dr Kieran McBride in 2006.
He is considered to be an international expert on new treatments for varicose veins. He has trained in both Vascular Surgery and Interventional Radiology and has a passion for non-surgical treatment of varicose veins.
There has literally been a revolution in treating leg vein problems in the past 10 years.

Company description
We are different at SVC. We only do leg veins We are a small independent walk-in / walk-out office-based practice. We are absolutely committed to giving every individual patient a personalized experience. You will get full support from our highly dedicated and informed staff, right from your very first phone call. You are unique. Each patient's veins are different and we endeavour to provide the best and most appropriate treatment available based on your first detailed assessment and your personal preference. Scottish Vein Centre offers every possible choice of modern non-surgical clinically proven treatment option.
No other vein clinic in Scotland can match us for choice or cost. Because we are small and independent. Profile of Dr Kieran McBride : Medical Director ( CV ) Qualified in 1982 from Trinity College, Dublin and trained in Vascular and transplant surgery before becoming an Interventional Radiologist. He was appointed first as a Consultant Radiologist in Edinburgh in 1994 and is now Lead Consultant Interventional Radiologist in NHS Fife since 2004. Kieran had the vision to combine his skills in "key hole" techniques with his previous experience in vein surgery. He was initially inspired in 2004 by Dr Robert Minn, an American Radiologist, when he first heard him present a new ground-breaking technique to effectively treat varicose veins, totally under local anaesthetic, in an office-based setting.
The "inside the vein" endovenous laser treatment ( EVLT / EVLA ) and radio frequency ablation ( heat-shrinking ) technique called VENEFIT Closure Fast have almost entirely replaced varicose vein surgery to treat varicose veins in North America. In 2005 Dr McBride conducted a proof of concept trial of EVLA in NHS Fife. All 20 patients had a successful outcome, but unfortunately the NHS in Fife and elsewhere in Scotland and across the UK have refused to fund this new treatment. To improve availability of laser vein treatment and other vein treatments and to increase.
