About the Surgery

Varicose veins are formed or seen on those veins which are under the skin surface. In the normal flow of blood in the veins, the blood does not flow downward according to the force of gravity in the leg because of the one-way valves. Failure of these valves causes the blood to flow downwards rather than towards the heart and hence cause the blood to pool in the leg, forming twisted bulging veins, which are known as varicose veins.

EVLT stands for Endovenous Laser Treatment and it is a surgical treatment for curing varicose veins. EVLT is a minimally invasive procedure that makes use of catheters, lasers, and ultrasound to treat varicose veins. This treatment is by far one of the safest and best in class as it is over in 45 minutes and the patients are almost immediately relieved of their symptoms.

Given below are the visible symptoms of varicose veins:
  • Veins that are dark purple or blue in color
  • Veins that appear twisted and bulging; they are often like cords on your legs
When painful signs and symptoms occur, they may include:
  • An achy or heavy feeling in your legs
  • Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in your lower legs
  • Worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long time
  • Itching around one or more of your veins
  • Skin discoloration around a varicose vein

Do I have varicose veins?

You may have varicose veins if you have any of the below symptoms

An achy or heavy feeling in your legs

Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in your lower legs

Worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long time

Itching around one or more of your veins

Bleeding from varicose veins

Veins that are dark purple / blue in color

Veins that appear twisted and bulging; often like cords on your legs

Inflamed tissues (Eczema)

Skin ulcers or Blood clots

Or if your legs look like this :

There is minimum preparation for the surgery and in it.
  • Any type of medication is to be stopped at the advice of the surgeon. For example any blood thinners.
  • Any type of strenuous physical activity such as running or carrying anything heavy is to be avoided.
The surgery being one of the safest and time efficient the surgeon goes according to a few simple, yet detailed steps, beginning with.
  • An ultrasound is held against the skin and the varicose veins are identified so as to effectively treat them.
  • The skin being sterilized, anesthesia is administered so as to numb the area and the needed instruments are inserted into the affected veins.
  • It comprises of 3 stages:
  • It starts with a guide wire being positioned into the varicose vein and only runs inside the target vein. [The main job of the guide wire is to guide the catheter (flexible tube), easily, to the treatment site.]
  • Once the guide wire is in place a sheath is placed around and runs along the length of the wire.
  • Finally the sheath reaches the end of the guide wire, the wire is pulled out and the laser is then inserted.
  • The laser is then activated and pulled back along the length of the varicose vein. Due to the heat emitted by the laser, the walls of the vein collapse behind the tip of the laser as it moves along, thus, in essence, closing the vein..
For the best and quickest recovery after EVLT.
  • The patient is advised, by the physician, to wear compression stockings for up to 2 weeks after the surgery. The motive behind this is to create a pressure which will assist the leg veins to push the blood up and thus preventing a venous disorder to occur again.
  • A high fibre diet and regular exercise is advised to be undertaken by the doctor.
Even though EVLT has minimal risks, every surgical treatment has risk associated with it. This risk could begin with
  • An infection developing on site.
  • The most serious risk of EVLT is the formation of a condition known as “Deep Vein Thrombosis”. Although quite rare, there is always a possibility of it occurring, thus following the advice of the physician or surgeon is chief in avoiding such risks.

Stages of vein diseases

Stage 1

Spider Veins

These dilated skin capillaries create a spider-like appearance in the legs. They typically cause more cosmetic problems than health problems, but in some cases cause pain. Treating spider veins not only improve appearance but also prevent the progression of venous disease.

Stage 2

Varicose Veins

These veins have a ropey-like appearance and bulge, often protruding, from the skin. These veins, if left untreated, can lead to increased symptoms and worsened appearance which begin to interfere with daily life and activity.

Stage 3

Leg Edema

As venous disease progresses, untreated varicose veins begin to evolve into other health problems, such as edema. This chronic leg swelling manifests over the course of the day or after standing for long periods. Others experience restless leg syndrome, itchy skin, and severe aching or cramping.

Stage 4

Skin Changes

Over time, venous disease causes skin discoloration. The skin becomes thinner and brown discoloration appears as a stain on the skin. This occurs beacause of blood leaking from the blood vessels and into the skin tissue.

Stage 5

Leg Ulcers

These are an indication that the venous disease has reached an advanced stage. They are extremely painful, itchy, and require constant care and dressing, signifcantly impacting quality of life.

I highly recommend Dr Shashidhar

I am Jitendra Jain. I had consulted Dr Shashidhar for my wife Veena Jain's varicose vein problem. Doctor examined her and suggested EVLT procedure. EVLT was done successfully. Post operation because of anesthesia it took longer to gain bladder sensation but it was promptly attended by the doctor. Overall experience was good and doctor also called up to enquire patient health post discharge.

Me and my family are eternally indebted to you

My name is Ashwini , my father Mr. Nandkumar was suffering from Internal Carotid Artery stenosis. His left Carotid Artery was completely blocked and the right one was nearly 90% blocked. Dr.Shashidhar explained the problem, the surgical procedure, the risks involved in detail and gave us the confidence to go ahead with the stenting of the right carotid artery. Dr.Shashidhar's expertise in this grave situation, saved my father's life. Now my father is almost back to normalcy. I would strongly recommend him for any Vascular problems. Thank you so much Dr.Shashidhar for the timely help rendered.

Thanks to Dr. Shashidhar for advising me the latest treatment.

I am 40yr old female. I had extensive deep vein thrombosis in my left leg. Whole leg had swollen & painful. Dr. Shashidhar advised latest treatment to dissolve the clot, since I was young. He also told that if the colts are dissolved by tablets, it may take long time to dissolve & the swollen leg may remain lifelong. So I was advised to undergo thrombolysis by placing catheter in the clots. I was kept in ICU & clot dissolving medicines was given by catheter placed in the clots. Medicines were given for 2 days. The whole swelling disappeared & pain was reduced significantly within one week. I was almost normal & I am on tablets, so that the colts will not form again. I would recommend him for latest treatment
