Varicose Vein Removal Operation Failure

03 January 2011

A woman underwent an operation to remove her varicose vein stripper head.  Upon completion of the operation she was informed that the surgery had been a success.  As time went by she noticed that there were a few lumps remaining on her legs.  She was reassured that the lumps were merely scar tissue and would heal in time. She had a biopsy of one of the lumps which confirmed that it was the head of the varicose vein stripper which had been used in her initial operation. Our expert medical negligence solicitors negotiated compensation of £14,000 for the pain and suffering our client had been through since the initial operation.
