Varicose veins can occur in any part of the leg, but are mostly found on thighs and calves due to strenuous and long hours of continuous standing. The disease marks indication of a malfunction of venous system and should be evaluated by a vascular surgery specialist.

Dr Ravul Jindal, director, vascular surgery, Fortis Hospital Mohali, said this while addressing a press meet regarding varicose veins treatment here on Saturday.

Dr Jindal, said: “A wide range of advanced treatment options are available for varicose veins such as foam sclerotherapy and laser treatment of the diseased vein. Foam sclerotherapy is used to treat bulging varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure is less painful and takes about 30 minutes. A patient has an early recovery and can go home within an hour of the procedure. Also, there are fewer medications and post-procedure care.”
