Sclerotherapy Treatments we offer In this procedure, small and medium-sized varicose veins are injected with a chemical. This chemical solution scars and removes the varicose veins. The treated veins disappear in a few weeks. However, one vein may have to be injected more than once. It is a short procedure and usually does not require anaesthesia. 2. Radiofrequency Ablation Treatments we offer An incision is made either above or below the knee. A thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the enlarged vein and the tip of the tube is heated with the help of radiofrequency or laser energy. This collapses the veins and seals them shut. This procedure is usually preferred for larger varicose veins and is done under local anesthesia. 3. Laser Treatment Treatments we offer No cuts or needles are required in this treatment. Laser treatment uses strong rays of focused light which are applied on the veins and they slowly fade and disappear. 4. Ligation and Stripping Treatments we offer During this procedure, small incisions are made into the varicose veins. The vein is then tied off (ligated) and removed. Removing the vein will not affect the blood circulation in the legs, as veins go deeper in the leg and take care of the larger volumes of blood. It is a short procedure and one can return home on the same day. 5. Surgical Options Treatments we offer Ambulatory Phlebectomy: Here, smaller varicose veins are removed through tiny skin punctures. Only the areas that are pricked would be numbed. It is a short procedure and the patient can return home on the same day.Endoscopic Vein Surgery: This procedure is done only in advanced cases that involve leg ulcers. A thin tube with an attached camera (endoscope) is inserted into the leg to view the varicose veins and they are removed through small incisions. Want to know more about the treatment options at Practo Care Surgeries? Book an Appointment What are Varicose Veins? Varicose veins are visible, swollen, and twisted veins that lie just beneath the skin. These enlarged veins appear blue or dark purple in colour. Varicose veins can affect any superficial veins (veins close to the skin surface) in the body, but they commonly affect the veins of the legs. This happens due to the increased pressure in the veins of the lower body while standing and walking upright. 1. How do Varicose Veins develop? Veins have one-way valves (valves that open only to one side allowing the blood flow only to one direction) which help carry blood back to the heart. Blood can back up or pool in the veins if these valves are weak or damaged. This causes veins to swell, resulting in what are known as "varicose veins."Varicose veins typically develop in veins farthest from the heart due to the difficulty of blood flow back to the heart from the legs due to gravity. 2. What are the symptoms of Varicose Veins? Primary symptoms of Varicose Veins include highly visible, enlarged and twisted veins on the legs that appear blue or dark purple. One may also experience:Pain and swelling in the legs while standing and sometimes during sitting.Heaviness in the legs after exercising.Burning sensation, numbness, tingling and cramps in the legs.Changes in the skin texture near the varicose vein (brown or blue texture of the skin).Itching, dryness and redness near the area of varicose veins or swelling of your ankles.Leg ulcers or spider veins. (These are small, thin, thread-like veins which are seen on the skin and can be blue, red or purple in colour) 3. How Are Varicose Veins Diagnosed? Diagnosis in most of the cases is done by physical examination. The patient will be asked to stand while your doctor inquires about the symptoms and also examines the legs for varicose veins. At times, some test are advised which can include:Doppler test: This is an ultrasound scan which is done to determine the direction of flow of blood in the veins, presence of blood clots and the causes and site of obstruction in your veins.Colour duplex ultrasound scan: This ultrasound scan shows the coloured image of the veins for any obstructions, clots and also determines the speed of the blood flow in the veins.

There are numerous treatment options available that are tailored to your specific medical requirements. Some treatment options are conservative, requiring only a change in diet or lifestyle as well as regular exercise. Another method is to wear compression stockings tightly around your leg to stimulate blood circulation. How many days of bed rest is required after undergoing treatment? Non-surgical treatments have zero downtime whereas the surgical techniques for Varicose Veins are usually outpatient procedures allowing the patient to go home in 1-2 hours after the surgery. However, you may be required to stay in the hospital depending on the advice of your surgeon. What are the complications associated with Varicose Veins? Complications with varicose veins are rare and these may include blood clots, ulcers (open wounds on the skin), and bleeding. If you notice any of these symptoms, consult a doctor immediately. Whom should I consult for the treatment of Varicose Veins? Consult a vascular specialist or a vascular surgeon for the treatment of varicose veins. They are specialized in treating conditions that affect veins and arteries (blood vessels that deliver oxygenated blood from the heart to the other tissues). What is the cost of Varicose Vein surgeries? The cost of varicose vein surgeries in India can be between INR 70,000 and INR 90,000. Laser surgeries can cost you around INR 1,00,000 to INR 1,40,000. This cost may vary according to the procedures used, the complexities of the disease and the geographical location. When to follow-up with your Doctor? After the varicose vein surgery, your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure proper recovery. This visit will be scheduled around 7-10 days after the procedure. Is massage good for Varicose Veins? Massage can help relieve the swelling but it cannot treat the condition. Consult your doctor for the treatment modalities. Should pregnant women consider Varicose Veins surgery? Varicose veins that develop during pregnancy normally do not require treatment as it improves by itself within a few months after delivery (childbirth) with proper exercise, weight reduction and dietary changes. General advice about how to avoid varicose veins Avoid standing for a long time If your job requires you to stand all the time, try to take small breaks by sitting between your tasks. Do not cross your legs while sitting Always keep your foot on a higher level when you sit (use a small stool to keep your feet on). Practice daily exercises Exercises boost blood flow in your veins and improve your muscle tone. Yet, consult a doctor to define the best period of exercise. Lose weight Obesity is one of the crucial risk factors of varicose veins. If you are overweight, make a plan to lose some pounds to ease off the pressure on your veins. Do not wear tight clothes Replace your tight pants with loose ones. Tight clothes cause pressure around your waist, thighs, and legs, leading to vein symptoms such as cramps and pain. Wear compression stockings These stockings will provide pressure on your legs which can prevent the pooling of blood in your veins, hence, decreasing the formation of clots in the veins.
