Best Treatment for Varicose veins in Miyapur

Varicose veins are large, swollen veins that often appear on the legs and feet. They happen when the valves in the veins do not work properly, so the blood does not flow effectively.

The veins rarely need treatment for health reasons, but if swelling, aching, and painful legs result, and if there is considerable discomfort, the best treatment for varicose veins available.

Varicose Veins are a painful condition in which the veins, usually of the lower limbs, start to bulge and become knotty. The first line of treatment recommended by the expert doctors at MetroCare Hospitals is a change in lifestyle and the use of compression stockings combined with physical therapy. If the condition does not improve the doctors may recommend Varicose Veins Surgery.

The surgeon may decide to undertake Sclerotherapy or Micro-sclerotherapy. In these, the surgeon makes incisions near the affected region and injects a medication to collapse the vein. The blood flow is thus redirected through other veins and the damaged vein is gradually absorbed by the surrounding tissue.

Treatments and Procedures:

If the patient has no symptoms or discomfort and is not bothered by the sight of the varicose veins, treatment might not be necessary. However, if there are symptoms, treatment may be required to reduce pain or discomfort, address complications, such as leg ulcers, skin discoloration, or swelling.

Surgical Procedure:

If varicose veins are large, they may need to be removed surgically. This is usually done under general anesthetic. In most cases, the patient can go home the same day – if surgery is required on both legs, they may need to spend one night in hospital.

Laser treatments are often used to close off smaller veins, and also spider veins. Strong bursts of light are applied to the vein, which gradually fades and disappears.
