Is a laser operation for me?.

Can I get a Laser operation even though I have frequently had operations before?

Yes anyone with varicose veins can undergo an operation irrespective of whether there have been any attempts at solving the varicose vein problem by operation before or not.

By ultrasound scanning an analysis is made regarding which main vein is damaged and whether it is possible to perform a laser operation in order to solve the problem. If only varicose veins are present and there is no leakage from a main vein it is sufficient to remove the varicose veins by the use of a crochet hook.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins may be without symptoms. Most people however have some symptoms that may be unclear. Fatigue, irritability, pain, swelling and cramp are common symptoms. If varicose veins have been untreated for a long time there may occur permanent damage in the skin and there may also be wound formations. These wounds are frequently chronic and difficult to treat and have a tendency to re-appear.
