Varicose veins are large, swollen veins that often appear on the legs and feet. They happen when the valves in the veins do not work correctly, so the blood does not flow effectively. The veins rarely need treatment for health reasons, but if swelling, aching, and painful legs result, and if there is considerable discomfort, treatment is available.
For Varicose Veins, treatment usually doesn’t mean a hospital stay or a long, uncomfortable recovery. Thanks to less invasive procedures, varicose veins can generally be treated on an outpatient basis.
If the cases are extreme, surgery is required. Surgically, large varicose veins are usually removed under general anaesthetic. In most cases, the patient can go home the same day – if surgery is required on both legs, they may need to spend one night in the hospital. For surgical treatments in India, the cost lies between USD 664 – USD 1,991.
