Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery varicose veins


Avatar m tn Recently I've seen ads for laser treatments for varicose veins. They state that they are noninvasive procedures. Do they work? If so, what should I look for to make sure the treatment center/operator is medically safe?
Avatar m tn sir Iam 42 yrs male suffering from varicose veins in both legs, what is the treament for this if it is curable kindly advice Thanks c.
Avatar m tn I’ve had varicose veins on one of my legs for some time and as a result a lump had developed on the calf just below the knee. I had no knowledge about the veins (shame on me), until one day when the lump became red and painful and I started to educate myself after a doctor’s visit. I don’t know if this was a coincident or not, but it became inflamed after my dental appointment where I was given some anesthetics in order to remove a 4 unit bridge.
Avatar f tn I was recently told that the pain I've been having in my legs is from varicose veins. I've tried compression stockings, changing my shoes, and leg elevation. Nothing has worked and in fact the compression stockings caused more pain. The veins on the insides of my knees are causing a lot of pain to the point that I can't let my legs touch at night. I am having pains up my thigh on the inside and back. I'm just so tired of this pain and Its affecting my sleep and my job.
Avatar m tn I dont suggest laser treatment or surgery for the varicose veins problem.I dont have experience too .I treat my varicose veins with venorid and got rid of it.
Avatar n tn If I were to have surgery on these veins, w/ port wine being a vascular deformity would it be likely that I would have other veins become varicose later? I really want to have the surgery. My veins have been varicose since middle school. They are painful and restrict my exercise. I am extremely embarassed, and as could be expected, summer is the worst! I have 2 beautiful daughters that were born port wine free, and I would die to be able to wear dresses and shorts again.
Avatar f tn Wearing compression stockings is often the first approach to try before moving on to other treatments for varicose veins. Compression stockings are worn all day. They steadily squeeze your legs, helping veins and leg muscles move blood more efficiently. The amount of compression varies by type and brand. If this does not help then depending on what is available in your area, you may have choices between laser treatment, radiofrequency treatment, or sclerotherapy.
Avatar n tn I tried Vitamin K Cream for varicose veins, but that actually seemed to make it worse. Some veins that got really large when I jelqed have now shrunk and seem unhealthy looking. I don't want the to turn purple like the others. What can I do? Thank you for this forum.
Avatar m tn My podiatrist is suggesting I have a vascular surgeon treat my Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS) with endovascular laser treatment (EVLT) to see if varicose veins are causing my TTS. My pod saw some veins on my MRI that looked like they might be larger than normal. I've been wearing compression socks with some, but limited, success.
Avatar f tn If any of the causes which can be controlled are detected then taking care of those causes can reduce the progression of varicose veins. Yes, laser is a good option however whether it is good for you or not can be judged by your vascular specialist only. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn During erection they bulge out sort of scary like and I am concerned when they rupture what is the course of action? Does the urethra repair itself or is there laser surgery or what do you do? My urologist said he didn't think I damaged myself with a vibrator over the years like I thought i had and he said it was due to slight stenosis in his opinon, but he recommended dhoing nothing since I can pee pretty good without spraying all over. What do you think and is there a cure.
Avatar n tn I am interested in laser removal of spider veins on my nose. Does anybody have any experience with this procedure? Does it work well or is it on par with other techniques which are terrible such as nose jobs, face lifts, breast implants, lipo suction?
Avatar f tn About 17 years ago (age 6) I suffered from Hemangiomas and Varicose veins in my right labia and inner thigh. It took about 3 years for anyone to figure out what was wrong with me....I even had doctors tell my mother I must be making up storeis. We tried creams, baths basically anything and everything we coudld. It was very frustrating, but I finally had a plastic surgeon perform laser surgey 2 times and then had conventional surgery to remove the masses. Which seemed to take care of it.
Avatar f tn Sclerotherapy is another common treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins. In this procedure with the help of a needle a liquid chemical is injected into the vein. This causes swelling in vein and collapsing .This stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. This procedure can be done without general anesthesia and does not lead to inference in the daily activities. Laser techniques can help in curing small varicose veins. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor.
Avatar dr m tn if they have a deviated septum and if allergy treatment doesn’t work, then we can offer a septoplasty. There is also surgery to reduce the turbinates, which are these wing-like structures on the side of the nose that swell when you have a cold or allergy and there’s one other condition called nasal valve collapse that is frequently undiagnosed. This is a condition where the sidewall nostrils of your nose tend to collapse due to just natural weakening or due to previous surgery.
Avatar n tn Hi, Veins may be located deep or superficial in the body. Because the veins carry deoxygenated blood, they appear dark and blue. The two common conditions associated with blue veins are: varicose and spider veins. Both these conditions occur on the legs and are associated with increased venous pressure, hence the engorgement of the veins with blood.This results to veins which become large and distended and appear blue.
Avatar n tn Yes - I'm curious what type of surgery you had too. I heard that having laser surgery is a lot easier to recover from than regular surgery. My main concern in doing that is because the gastro doctor said in my case it would be considered cosmetic surgery at this point (doctor code for "not covered by insurance", how much does surgery like that cost if you don't mind me asking.
Avatar f tn Dr performed an internal ultrasound which showed the pelvic congestion varicose veins all pressing on my uterus. Dr performed a laparoscopy. Found moderate endometriosis and of course, varicocele or large tangle of varicose veins, only on left side, due to nutcracker. Dr removed endo with laser. Dr also used laser ablation on varicocele walls to prevent it from pulling on my uterus. I am now three weeks post laparoscopy. Initially my left kidney hurt, but has since stopped.
Avatar n tn Hello It sounds like your son may suffer from varicose veins (enlarged veins). These are dilated veins that can develop over time. They may run in families, be more common in reproductive aged women. They may cause no symptoms at all aside from their appearance or they may cause swelling, pain and fatigue. A number of types of doctors may treat the problem, Im more familiar with my speciality which is vascular medicine or vascular surgery.
Avatar f tn I am 47 and have had varicose veins since my 20s! I had my first 'stripping' surgery when I was approx. 24. Over the years I've had sclerotherapy several times with varying degrees of success. Two years ago I underwent the new form of surgery with the laser to remove more of my large protruding veins. My question is, how many veins can be removed, destroyed before I don't have enough left? And why do they keep popping out?
Avatar n tn hi, my brother hbsg having positive but he his having varicose veins and chronic wound is there. he had surgery on Endovenous Laser Ablation but doctors told becz of hbsg positive wound is nt healing. just tell me becase of hbsg only wound is nt healing is that true.....?
Avatar n tn I have bad varicose veins in one leg, but the pain starts in the other leg and then goes to the leg with the bad veins - I am scheduled for laser surgery on the bad leg with the veins next month, but don't hold out much hopt. If anyone has any suggestions or help, please let me know - I am so discouraged - by the way, these symptoms came on suddenly, not gradually.
1408746 tn?1283678948 I just recently had a major surgery for something called Nutcracker Syndrome. This Syndrome results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist.[1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein).
Avatar n tn is there any other method without surgery like LASER. (Varicose Veins are being treated by laser now) . what about varicocele?what have u done for ur Varicocele? would like your comments email id ***@****. Take Care...
Avatar n tn I had undergone a right endovenous laser ablation of the greater saphenous vein for my varicose veins about 9 months ago. The surgery caused nerve injury resulting in severe case of numbness over the medial calf in the distribution of the right saphenous nerve. I have undergone nerve conduction study which shows normal left spahenous nerve, but absense of the right spahenous nerve.
Avatar n tn They can do miracles with brains and heart surgery and even vein surgery so I don't understand why they can't fix a lymphatic problem. I think it's because there are not enough cases to warrant a government grant but in my opinion there are more people with it than we know of. I bet a lot of people have it but due to the lack of pain often not see a doctor about it (like I did).
