Yes, of course there is a treatment. An interventional cardiologist trained in peripheral interventions or an interventional radiologist can do a procedure called ENDOVENOUS LASER THERAPY (EVLT). There are other procedures also like compression stockings, sclerotherapy and surgical treatment (vein ligation, stripping etc.). But I think EVLT will perhaps be the best option in your case. But as I always say, first meet your doctor, get properly examined, do the preliminary investigations like venous Doppler of leg veins and then discuss these therapy options with your doctor and then proceed accordingly. Hope these helps. Dr Chandrashekhar Munjewar www.thefitheart.in
