What Is Varicose Veins ?

Varicose Veins are twisted and bulgy veins that protrude on the surface of the skin. Spider veins are similar, but less obvious. These blue and red tattoo like lines on the skin, as well as the varicose veins are commonly found in the legs and occur primarily due to enlarged and weakened vein walls and faulty valves. This leads to a painful and problematic condition that sometimes necessitates spider/varicose vein treatment. Vascular defects and poor blood circulation are also important reasons for these vein disorders.

Apart from vascular defects, some of the other causes for varicose/spider veins are heredity, obesity, prolonged standing, and lifestyle changes. These are typical reasons requiring varicose vein treatment, of the upwardly mobile residing in metros like Mumbai or Delhi who spend a lot of standing hours commuting, added to a fast paced life, and no time for exercises.

The symptoms of varicose veins are:

  • Appearance of spider veins or bulging veins
  • Pain, heaviness and fatigue in the legs
  • Swollen ankles and calves
  • Burning or itching of the skin
  • Muscle cramping
  • Leg throbbing

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment

Expert doctors can easily diagnose them, and offer specialized treatment with modern methods. Non-surgical methods of Varicose vein/spider vein treatments are largely popular not only in big cities like Mumbai, but in all other cities also. Two such successful non-surgical procedures are Endovenous Laser Therapy for Varicose Veins (EVLT Varicose Veins) and Sclerotherapy. Dr. Saurabh Joshi, the principal consultant of Vein Center and a vascular interventional radiologist provides all types of minimally invasive laser treatments to cure varicose veins.

EVLT Varicose Veins

Varicose vein laser treatment involves applying a highly concentrated beam of light (laser) to the inner lining of vein with extreme precision, not affecting the surrounding tissue. The laser energy heats the inner lining of the vein, causing it to shrink and collapse. The body automatically and safely reroutes the blood through other healthy veins.

Like all other successful laser treatments, EVLT Varicose vein treatment is also very successful as well as safe. EVLT (laser) varicose vein treatment has a 98% initial success rate with excellent long term results.

We are proud to share that our original in-house research on Recurrent Varicose Veins Treatment authored by Dr. Saurabh Joshi, Dr.Ashwini Joshi, and Dr.Rohit Basapure was awarded the best presentation at the College of Phlebology London’s International Veins Meeting in March 2018.

This paper talks about strategies to treat recurrent varicose veins and its impact on transforming the current practice of treating primary varicose veins.

We identified the causes of recurrence of varicose veins in patients who were treated by open surgery and laser by older techniques at other centers and treated those causative veins that cured them.

This helps us treat our primary patients in a more comprehensive manner, giving you a long-lasting cure.
