What is the right treatment for varicosities in the leg?
Q: I am a 27 years old male suffering from varicosities in the leg and it is in the ulcer stage. Please let me know how effective is laser treatment for this?
A:Varicosities in the leg can be treated by injection therapy or by surgery. Surgery gives better results than injection therapy. Surgery may be "open" surgery (conventional surgery) or endoscopic surgery. The results from both types of surgery are about the same. Most surgeons would take measures to heal the ulcer first, before operating to remove the varicose veins.
