Varicose Veins Treatment
Varicose veins are the result of a simple malfunction in the valves of the vein
(which plays such an important role of carrying blood from the body to the heart
for re-circulation). It can become a major hindrance to leading a normal day-to-day
life and can be a rather painful ailment both physically and emotionally.
Varicose veins can occur due to a number of reasons like family history, work
related, pregnancy induced or can even occur due to obesity.
Do not neglect the classic symptoms like- Burning or throbbing or heavy feeling
in the legs. Aching legs or feet, dark blue or bulging veins may also be due
to varicose veins. These symptoms must not be ignored and one must consult the
doctor at the earliest, as he is the best judge.
There is a common misconception that varicose veins would heal with time. On
the contrary varicose veins do not heal on their own and if left untreated can
lead to further complications. With the right treatment and care it will not
be a cause of trouble at all.
In the bygone era the painful procedure of “Vein Stripping” was
used to treat these varicose veins. This procedure involved a lot of pain as
well as required a number of days for recovery. Modern technology has made it
very simple, introducing procedures that cause minimum pain and ensuring quick
recovery to the patient. The actual area of problem can be diagnosed through
physical examination and ultrasound tests and then the varicose veins can be
treated through minimally invasive procedures which would not cause much pain
A tiny incision or puncture of the skin under local anaesthesia is all it takes
to get back those lovely legs and drive away the terrible nagging pain that
was a dominant part of the patient’s life for so long. With the help of
modern technology varicose
vein treatment and getting on with a new phase of life minus the pain and
embarrassment is only a matter of a few days.
Southwest Vein Institute is dedicated towards the treatment of varicose
veins. The doctors were featured among the “Best Doctors Chosen by their
Peers” in D magazine and “Texas Super Doctors” by Texas Monthly.

veins but also at the post operative care that is so very important to get the
patient back to a normal life. The team of doctors also work on returning the
self-confidence that most of the varicose veins patients lose due to the embarrassment
that accompanies the pain. Medically well equipped and the expertise of the
doctors together make it one of the best available in terms of medical facilities
