Varicose Vein Laser Treatment
Varicose veins are blue veins on the legs that can worsen to pain in the legs, swelling, skin darkening and even open wounds on the feet.
Traditionally, varicose veins were treated by open surgery called Surgical Stripping of varicose veins. This is an open surgery and an invasive procedure.
The current standard of care for Varicose Veins treatment is Endovenous Ablation. This involves placing a device within the vein and sealing it from the inside. This is done via a small needle very much like an IV line needle placed within the appropriate vein in the leg.
Ablation can be carried out using Laser or Electrical Energy ( RFA ). Laser ablation is the most common method of treatment. The cost of laser treatment varies from center to center depending on type of device used and other factors.
At Vein Center, we use the latest generation 1470 nano meter wavelength radial firing laser fiber. This gives a uniform closure of the vein and cuts down operation time drastically.
Varicose Veins laser treatments are covered by medical insurance. For personal insurance policies, the wait period is typically 3 years from the time of inception of the policy. There is no waiting period for corporate insurance policies.
Any consultations and tests done within 30 days of the procedure, which are relevant to the treatment are also covered by insurance and can be completely reimbursed.

WOW! What an amazing experience @ VEINCENTERMUMBAI. My father was suffering from Varicose veins and he was not really doing good. Our family Dr. referred Dr. Saurabh Joshi, I must appreciate him because I have come across very few doctors who are so down to earth, so humble and at the same time so helpful. He explained us everything in such a way that I didn’t feel any barrier. Dr. Saurabh Joshi has also been very reasonable in terms of Money. My Father got operated today and I have never seen him so happy in last few months. He (my father) said “It was an amazing experience, I never felt I am talking to a doctor I felt as if I am talking to one of my family members” and trust me friends we all expect such kind of people around us. I must also bring in consideration that he operated my father at CritiCare(Juhu – Mumbai), The staff was co-operative. Dr. Saurabh Joshi has a good heart and a blessed soul. May ALLAH Bless you and Your Family @ Dr. Saurabh Joshi. Thank You for reading.
Sunil, 29 Yr Stock Broker:Dr.Joshi had conducted a corporate awareness lecture at our firm. I thank god that he took the effort to educate us. I was impressed by the professional presentation. I later learnt that he did not charge the company for the time that he took out for us. I caught hold of him after the lecture and fixed an appointment. I went for the procedure the very next day and got the Endovenous Laser Treatment done. I could not believe that there would be NO STICHES. When I opened the crepe bandage the next day, I was amazed to see NO STICHES! My office gave me 3 days off to recuperate which I spent happily partying! Thank you all.
Sanjay, 59 Yr Retired Policeman : My job over the years involved standing for long periods of time. Sometimes over 16 hours a day. This, in addition to unhealthy eating habits caused me to gain a lot of weight and also developed dark patches over my legs and feet. I thought the prominent veins were age related, but my GP did not think so. I was referred to Dr.Joshi’s Vein Center, where Dr.Joshi himself did the Colour Doppler Ultrasound examination and explained the cause of these veins and skin darkening as Varicose Veins. We decided to treat them and EVLT laser procedure was done as a day care treatment. I am very happy with the top class service that I received. I have recommended many of my colleagues from the force to see Dr.Joshi as I feel many more can benefit from this revolutionary treatment.
