Radio frequency ablation (RFA)

It is a simple day care procedure which takes less than an hour and you will be discharged the same day. You may resume your regular activities and routine immediately.
Endo venous laser ablation (EVLA)
Laser surgery closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein. Blood then flows through other nearby veins instead.
In this process, a sclerosing solution is injected into the varicosed vein that stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. Subsequently, the vein fades away and the disease subsides completely.
Compression stockings are elastic socks to be worn in affected leg. It reduces the pooling of blood and pumps blood from veins causing an increase in blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness.
