Surgical treatment method.
It remains an alternative method for severe cases, but in our time it is being resorted to less and less. In the upper and lower parts of the varicose vein, cuts are made, and the large varicose vein is pulled out of the leg. This requires general or local anesthesia, the patient spends one or two days in the hospital, and takes several weeks to heal. Surgically, you can remove a large area of an injured vein, but usually small scars remain on the ankle and on the inside of the thigh.
One woman, who had her varicose vein removed, told me that severe pain, scars, and long-term healing had disappointed her with this method. Three years later, she needed treatment again, but now she chose sclerotherapy, and the results were much better.
