What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are visible, swollen, and twisted veins that lie just beneath your skin.
What causes Varicose Veins?
1
Mechanical obstruction due to wearing tight-fitting clothes
2
Underlying obstruction like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pelvic tumour
3
Chronic constipation or diarrhea
4
Occupations that involve prolonged standing (nurses, hair stylists, and policemen)
5
Overactive muscle pumps as in cyclists
Pain and swelling in the legs while sitting/standing
Heaviness in the legs after exercising
Numbness, tingling, and cramps in the legs
Burning sensation in the legs
Changes in skin texture near the varicose veins
Itching, dryness, and redness around the area
Swelling of the ankles
Leg ulcers
Physical Examination: Your limbs are examined to check for the presence of varicose veins
Imaging Techniques: Some tests are conducted like Doppler to determine the direction of the blood flow and Colour Doppler ultrasound scan to detect any obstruction or clots in the veins and the speed of blood flow
Trunk varicose veins
Located near the surface of the skin
Thick and knobbly (lumpy) in shape
Often long and unpleasant looking
Reticular varicose veins
Red in colour
Sometimes grouped in a network

Surgical Options
Your Practo Care doctor will suggest a surgery if the varicose veins are large, bulging, and causing discomfort
  • A short procedure that usually does not require anaesthesia
  • Small and medium-sized varicose veins are injected with a chemical solution that scars and removes the varicose veins
  • In a few weeks, the treated veins disappear
  • Usually preferred for larger varicose veins and is performed under local anaesthesia
  • 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
  • A short procedure
  • Small cuts are made over the varicose veins
  • The veins are then tied off and removed
  • Removing the vein does not affect the blood circulation in the legs, as veins deeper in the leg compensate for the larger volumes of blood
  • A short procedure
  • Only the areas that need to be pricked are numbed
  • Smaller varicose veins are removed through small incisions in the skin
  • No cuts required
  • Rays of focused light are applied to the veins and they slowly fade away
  • Performed only in advance cases that involve leg ulcers
  • An endoscope, a thin tube with an attached camera, is inserted into the leg to view the varicose veins
  • The identified varicose veins are removed through small incisions
1Medication
  • The role of medicines is limited to using painkillers for alleviation of pain
2Lifestyle Modifications
  • Exercise regularly
  • Lose excess body weight
  • Have a healthy diet including fibre and potassium-rich food
  • Maintain good skin hygiene
  • Avoid standing for long hours while working
  • Raise/elevate your legs on pillows while sleeping
  • Wear compression stockings around your ankles, calves, or thighs to improve the blood circulation

FAQs
Consult a general surgeon or vascular surgeon for the treatment of varicose veins.
Massage can only help relieve the swelling but it cannot treat the condition. Consult your doctor to better understand the treatment modalities.
After the varicose veins surgery, your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure a proper recovery. This visit will be scheduled around 7-10 days after the procedure.
1. Avoid standing for a long time
2. Do not cross your legs while sitting
3. Do moderate exercises to increase the flow of blood
4. Lose extra weight
5. Do not wear tight clothes
6. Do not wear high heels
7. Wear compression stockings
Most cases of varicose veins require surgical intervention. The medical treatment including lifestyle modifications is limited to milder cases.
Being a non-invasive/minimally invasive procedure, the side effects associated with the laser treatment are minimal. This is coupled with a quicker discharge from the hospital and resumption of daily activities.

I’d definitely recommend Practo Care for their support at every step of my pilonidal sinus treatment. The doctor was highly experienced and the surgery went well. The team took care of everything from day one to the day of discharge very efficiently.
