Color Doppler study helps to determine which system of veins is affected. It helps to decide
on the mode of treatment.
Some varicose veins can be managed by injecting irritant solution into the vein to block them
- Open surgery
- Laser Ablation
- Radiofrequency Ablation
Surgical treatment is needed if non surgical measures fail to control or if there are complications.
In open surgery the damaged veins are removed through small incisions. Recently less invasive procedures like Laser and RF ablation have become more popular and have
shown good results. In cases of laser and RF Ablation no cuts are made. The laser or RF fibre is passed into the vein through a tiny needle hole and the veins are burnt
by the heat generated. All veins cannot be removed or destroyed by surgical means. Even after surgery patient must wear compression stockings to get maximum benefit
for 4-5 months.
