Dear Alex

The process is very similar to ligation of varicose veins and involves blocking affected veins by an agent which would cause thrombosis. I would believe that is normally done in conjuction with a radiology department but I am not aware of any particular centre in Cape town. I would recommend that your enquire from your urologist with regard to this option.
