Varicose Vein

I have varicose vein in the right leg near the calf muscle and ankle. It's been over 20 years I am living with this condition. I use compression socks in both legs and occasionally use varco oil. My left leg is absolutely fine. Can you advice a better solution, heard about leech treatment and laser treatment. Can you advice.

Hello, If they are not under control after using compression stockings then, endothermal ablation or sclerotherapy,, are better options for you under experienced hand, If endothermal ablation treatmentsand sclerotherapy are unsuitable for you, you'll usually be offered a surgical procedure called ligation and stripping to remove the affected veins. Please consult general surgeon. For further workup.
