Varicose vein surgery

Varicose vein surgery is one of the services offered by the Department of Vascular Surgery at Sterling Hospitals in Ahmedabad. Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that often occur in the legs and can cause discomfort, pain, and cosmetic concerns. Vascular surgeons at Sterling Hospitals may perform various surgical procedures to treat varicose veins, including: 

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA): This minimally invasive procedure uses laser energy to heat and close the affected veins from the inside. A small laser fiber is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision, and the laser energy is applied to seal the vein, allowing blood to reroute to healthier veins. 
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): Similar to EVLA, RFA uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close the varicose veins. A catheter with a radiofrequency electrode is inserted into the vein, and the energy is delivered to close the vein. 
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This procedure involves the removal of small sections of varicose veins through tiny incisions in the skin. It is usually performed in conjunction with EVLA or RFA to remove residual varicose veins after the closure of the main vein. 
  • Sclerotherapy: This non-surgical procedure involves injecting a chemical solution into the varicose veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away. Sclerotherapy is commonly used for smaller veins and as a complementary treatment to EVLA or RFA. 

The choice of surgical procedure depends on the size, location, and severity of the varicose veins, as well as the overall health of the patient. Vascular surgeons at Sterling Hospitals in Ahmedabad use advanced techniques and technologies to provide safe and effective treatment for varicose veins, with the goal of improving symptoms and enhancing the quality of life for patients. 

It's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional at Sterling Hospitals or any other medical facility for a proper evaluation and personalized treatment plan for varicose veins or any other vascular condition. They will assess the individual case and recommend the most appropriate treatment option based on the patient's needs and medical condition.
