Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose vein stripping is the surgical procedure to treat varicose veins condition. Varicose veins are the abnormal veins that appear swollen, twisted, prominent and dark purple or blue through the skin.
The heart pumps blood to the various parts of the body through blood vessels. Veins are the blood vessels that carry blood from the various parts of the body back to the heart for purification (oxygenation). Obesity, pregnancy and standing for long hours can cause the veins to swell, bulge and twist, and be visible under the skin.
Endovenous radio-frequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure performed to seal varicose veins (enlarged leg veins) with heat generated from radiofrequency energy. After the varicose veins are sealed, blood starts flowing immediately to the healthy veins.
