Varicose Veins

Varicose veins LASER treatment in Mumbai

Varicose veins LASER treatment is minimally invasive procedure performed at our clinic in Navi Mumbai, India by our specialist doctors. It takes approximately one hour’s time, is painless and patient can resume work on the same day.

Several types of laser treatments are available to minimize or eliminate varicose veins. Endovenous laser ablation is a new, minimally invasive technique. Energy of LASER closes off the blood supply to inefficient varicose veins and may replace the need for traditional treatments like “vein stripping”.

Surgery of varicose veins– Depending upon your diagnosis, phlebectomy may be needed, which removes varicose veins or vein clusters through several tiny incisions. Traditional treatments like “vein stripping” are also available.

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged “rope-like” veins (blood vessels) that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. They can be flesh-colored, dark purple or blue, and often look like a cluster of grapes. They are commonly found on the back of the calves or the inside of the legs. However, they can form anywhere on the legs, from groin to ankle.

Causes and risk factors for varicose veins

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Veins have valves that act as one-way flaps, preventing blood from backing up and pooling.

When these one-way valves don’t work properly, blood then may flow backwards, causing the veins to dilate (enlarge) and become varicose. Varicose veins result from abnormal inner walls or abnormal valves in these blood vessels.

What are the Risk Factors for Varicose Veins?

  • Increasing age
  • Family history
  • Pregnancy and hormonal changes
  • Obesity
  • Prolonged standing
  • Prior deep vein

Signs and Symptoms of Varicose Veins

In many cases, varicose veins cause no symptoms. However, these veins are often unattractive and may become painful. Prolonged sitting or standing tends to make legs with varicose veins feel worse. Some common symptoms of them include:

  • Aching pain
  • Burning
  • Easily tired legs
  • Leg heaviness
  • Rash on the legs
  • Itching
  • Leg swelling
  • Numbness in the legs
  • Darkening of the skin
  • Skin ulcers

Does Walking Make Varicose Veins Worse?

No. Indeed, walking is beneficial, suggests varicose veins doctor in Mumbai. When you walk, the muscles in your legs contract and squeeze the veins, thus helping to force the blood to move forward on its way back to the heart.

Problems if Varicose veins Left Untreated

  • Bleeding – If the varicose vein is covered by very thin skin, minor injuries may cause bleeding.
  • Venous Eczema – this may occur over large varicose veins or around the ankle. It causes dry, red, flaky and itchy skin.
  • Venous Pigmentation – this is brown staining of the skin around the ankle. It is due to the leakage of small amount of blood from the veins into the skin.
  • Venous Ulceration – Ulcers at the ankle.

What you can do to prevent varicose veins?

Varicose veins specialist doctor advice few tips to Reduce Incidence and Reoccurrence of varicose veins:

  • Exercising regularly
  • Keeping your weight in a normal range
  • Avoiding prolonged sitting and standing
  • Not crossing your legs
  • Compression stocking use
  • Protecting your skin from the sun

Endo Laser procedure for Varicose Veins

It is performed under local anaesthesia.

Under ultrasonography guidance a fine wire is passed into the vein and a fine catheter is threaded up the vein. LASER fiber is inserted and LASER Machine is turned on. Slowly fiber is withdrawn.

LASER causes controlled injury to the wall of the vein. Follow up appointments are required to do ultrasonography to see long term result of varicose vein LASER Therapy.

What patient says about Dr. Nitish Jhawar

  • Person Image

    I was diagnosed with gall stones a year ago in Delhi, I showed it to a doctor at M.... hospital, he .... asked me to get a surgery done and get my gall removed on any date of my choice, I was sacred and too young to get it done I got a vibe from doctor that for him it’s just a small things, however according to for a patient it’s important first be convinced on the urgency to get it done and feel safe . A year later I shifted to Mumbai and started having a frequent pain in shoulder blades and gall area. It went sharp this time. We went to Dr Nitish , as oppose to Delhi doc, Dr Nitish was very polite, first asked us to get the scan done and understand the current scenario, the scan showed one big 17 mm stone which was earlier also there but this time also there were multiple various sized stones as well along with the big one. Dr Nitish examined the scan, explained me and my husband about the condition and need of surgery or else the stone Would have slipped in the panacea or bile calling for a bigger operation. He explained diagramatically . He was patient in explaining, gave us time to think and be convinced. We were ready and then he performed it . It was flawless, quick and went well. He is a very experienced and fine surgeon , he is caring and doesn’t create panic at all rather he takes it slowly and makes patient comfortable. It was lapro, it’s been 2 months I m writing this . I faced no issues till now. Fortis staff was also very caring and good. I would mention fortis Vashi in specific. Good follow up diet makes it normal. I would strongly recommend Dr Nitish. He knows his job perfectly. He is not money minded at all. He would recommend surgery only if it’s required.
