Diagnosis of varicose veins in Chandigarh can be done by expert vascular doctors. Most of the vascular specialists at Pristyn Care can identify varicose veins through a physical examination of the veins on the legs. Along with a physical examination, our doctors do recommend a doppler test and ultrasound scan.
These two diagnostic tests help our vascular doctors to know the direction of blood flow in the legs. And our vascular surgeons in Chandigarh can use your past and present medical and medication history to find out the root cause of your varicose veins.
Procedure or surgery:
With the help of advanced and latest surgical methods, varicose veins can be cured. A few of the surgical ways to cure varicose veins in Chandigarh are radiofrequency treatment, ligation and stripping, sclerotherapy, open surgery, laser varicose vein surgery, etc.
Vascular doctors in Chandigarh at Pristyn Care prefer to perform laser varicose veins treatment because of its benefits like no risk of infection, no complications, and minimal or less bleeding.
Two types of laser surgery methods are used to cure varicose veins in Chandigarh - simple laser treatment and endovenous laser treatment.
- Simple laser treatment: This is used to cure small and tiny varicose veins. More than one session is required and usually scheduled every six  to twelve  weeks. In this, laser heat is used to damage the varicose veins leading to form a scar tissue. The scar tissue can reduce the blood supply and over a period, varicose veins lose complete blood supply, which results in the disappearance of varicose veins.
- Endovenous laser treatment: This laser technique is highly recommended to cure large and bulged varicose veins. Before the start of this surgery, general anesthesia is given to the patient. Next, a small cut is made on the leg to insert the catheter. Through this catheter, a laser fiber is passed into the varicose veins. Once the fiber is in place, the catheter is removed slowly, which results in exposure of varicose veins directly to the heat of high energy laser beams. This leads to shrinkage of varicose veins. After completion of the procedure, the incision made on the leg is closed or patched up with bandages.
