A physical examination is also taken to confirm the symptoms experienced by the patient.

The patient is also provided with instructions by the doctor on how to prepare for the treatment.
There are several techniques that the surgeon can adapt depending on the patient’s diagnosis. These surgical options are the last resort first being changes in the lifestyle and medications provided by the doctor. These are:
An angioplasty is surgery performed that restores blood circulation by widening arteries. A vascular doctor places a small tube known as a catheter inside an artery and directs it to the trouble spot. A medicinal balloon is used to widen the gap and enhance the circulation of blood by pressing against the inner walls of arteries. To protect the arteries from contracting further, metallic stents are frequently put across the arterial wall.
The superficial saphenous vein is big in the calf that is removed or tied off during vein stripping. This aids in the treatment of spider veins. The stripping of the vein typically takes 1 and a half to 2 hours. The recovery period is usually from 2 to 4 weeks. However, the amount of time it takes to heal is determined by the number of veins removed and their placement. To alleviate the suffering, the doctor gives pain medicines.
It is a laser-assisted technique that uses radiation to shrink varicose veins. These are swelling, bulging veins that most commonly affect the thighs and calves. A laser device is used that transmits a narrow beam of light towards the veins that need to be treated.
Varicose and spider veins can be successfully treated using sclerotherapy. It’s frequently regarded as the best therapy for minor varicose veins. It is a procedure that includes inserting a fluid into a vein. The therapy scars the vein, causing blood to redirect via healthy veins.
The aftercare guidelines are provided by the doctor to the patient that needs to be followed to avoid any complications and speed up the process of healing.
- The patient should not stand or stand for a long time
- The legs should be kept elevated when lying down
- The patient should stay hydrated and drink a minimum of 7 or 8 glasses of water daily
- A healthy diet containing all the nutrients should be taken
