What are the treatment options for varicose veins?

Based on the stage of varicose veins the doctor will choose to administer either medical intervention or surgical intervention. The doctor may suggest lifestyle changes during the early stages of varicose veins.

Lifestyle changes: These include exercising, losing weight, not wearing tight clothing, or elevating your legs.

Compression stockings: Compression stockings help by squeezing your leg muscles helping blood move more efficiently. For the early stages of varicose veins, your doctor may suggest you wear this.

Surgical Interventions: For those stages of varicose veins that cannot be managed through lifestyle changes or medications, surgical intervention is used. There are multiple procedures that can be used to relieve you of your symptoms and condition.

  • Vein ligation or vein stripping: This is one of the older and traditional methods used to treat this condition. This involves the removal of the bad vein from your leg through small incisions. 

  • Laser Treatment: This is a minimally invasive method in which a laser is used to burn the vein. This is done through a single tiny incision that is made at the bottom of the bad vein. The doctor then guides a catheter the size of a pen to refill up the vein using ultrasound or x-ray as guidance. 
  • The laser fiber is then passed through this catheter and both the fiber can catheters are pulled back slowly destroying the vein completely. This then gets absorbed by the body. This is done as a day-care procedure, and you are able to go home on the same day

  • Sclerotherapy: A medical solution or foam is injected into your vein that will close your vein in a few week's time.  This procedure is used for Spider veins or very initial stages of Varicose Veins.

What is Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA / EVLT)?

EVLA stands for Endovenous Laser Ablation. It may also be referred to as EVLT or Endovenous Laser Treatment. This procedure uses laser energy to treat varicose veins under local anesthesia. 

This method has many advantages over the traditional vein stripping method. EVLA is usually a day-care procedure, which means you get discharged on the same day. 

The patient also does not have any visible cuts, stitches, or scars after the procedure.
