Varicose veins treatment in just one hour

Chandigarh, August 10
Armed with latest updates and innovative technology in treatment of painful varicose veins, the phlebologists at international symposium on venous disorders discussed non-invasive, scar less and painless procedure, which imparts relief from varicose veins.
Dr Ravul Jindal, vascular surgeon at Fortis Hospital, Mohali and executive member Venous Association of India apprised doctors attending symposium of latest laser treatment that eliminates varicose veins in just an hour’s time giving complete relief to patient.
While interacting with media after concluding session of international symposium along with foreign delegates, including Prof. Ted King from National Medical Director Vein Clinics of America Chicago, USA and Prof. Jean-Francois UHL Vascular Surgeon, Department of Anatomy, University Paris 5 and Vice President, French Society of Phlebology, Dr Jindal emphasized on making treatment least painful with earliest recovery for a patient.
“Though venous disease is also treated conventional way, it requires hospitalization, 2 to 3 weeks’ recovery time and leaves behind trail of multiple cuts, which are not appealing in cosmetic appearance,” he added.
Dr Jindal has introduced latest laser technology at Fortis Hospital, Mohali. Department of vascular surgery in Fortis treats these veins with modern modality of lasers known as for the first time in the area. Dr Jindal, who has performed over 400 such surgeries in England, will impart this treatment to patients. This is a non-invasive technique offered to patients suffering from varicose veins.
Treatment involves puncture of vein under ultrasound guidance and burning it using diode laser. “This technique is combined with foam sclerotherapy to ablate small veins. It is safe and painless. Patients can return home on same day as compared to conventional surgery where they are hospitalized,” revealed Prof Ted King.
He added that surgery can be performed under local or regional anesthesia and is virtually scarless. As it causes minimal damage to tissues its especially useful in patients who are on blood thinners, obese, groin infection, old age or patients who are scared of surgery.
Patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours except of vigorous exercise. If we calculate the overall cost newer treatment costs less than conventional method.
