The combination of various methods leads to better results.
Many doctors and clinics decide to develop only one of the methods for example: laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, sclerotherapy with foam or phlebectomy (mini or micro). Each of these methods in itself is good, but we can not treat all patients the same way. Each case is different and requires an individual approach. I recommend a combination of methods for treating varicose veins that uses several methods of treatment in a different sequence and ratio, according to the stage and type of varicose veins.
Full anesthesia affects negatively the body and it is better to be avoided
With the modern methods of treatment of varicose veins a general anesthesia is not required. The used anesthesia is local (tumescent). This type of anesthesia is much more preferable. it doesn't involve any risks (except an allergic reaction, but this is avoided by making all necessary tests in advance). And last but not least is not as expensive as a full anesthesia.
I am not recommending a surgical treatment of varicose veins!
This method is of more than 100 years old. Speaking about the rate at which the medicine develops the use of surgical treatment for varicose veins in our days is mildly a paradox.
Surgical treatment leads to major blood loss and removal of healthy tissue. For this manipulation it is required general anesthesia. Besides the already mentioned negatives sides, this method of treatment doesn't provide lasting results. The rate of recurrence of the disease after surgical treatement is very big. The recovery period is long and your legs will be covered with scars.
And there is more. It turns out that the surgical treatment is not only more painful, traumatic and inefficient, but it is also more expensive.
Me and many of my colleagues believe that the "100-years old surgical method'' must remain in history, where it belongs, along with the high risk of pain, scarring, recurrence, blood loss, infection, and last but not least much slower recovery. ..
