Varicose veins

Varicose veins may cause health and esthetic problems to lots of adults. Besides the health issues, the veins become widened, twisted, and may form areas, which look, like bruises. These are not nice to look at. Patients with varicose veins face thrombophilia or vein ulcers. There are several options of eliminating or treating this problem.

  1. Classic surgery is a standard way of surgical removal of the damaged veins. It is less patient friendly and causes quiet a lot of pain. General anesthesia and hospitalization is advised.
  2. Laser surgery introduces a catheter into the vein, by which the vein is closed from the inside. It is then either removed or left to dissolve.
  3. Mini invasive surgery CHIVA is an effective and patient friendly method. It does not remove the whole vein, but only the damaged parts. It can be used for large veins as well as for smaller ones.

Consultation: During the consultation with the doctor, you can discuss all issues that this kind of surgery brings and your individual needs. Also, the doctor will answer all your questions. Please notice that even though one of the options mentioned above may seem to be best for you, they each have their specifics and are not suitable for everyone. The most appropriate approach has to be chosen by the doctor. Sometimes, a combination of different types of surgeries is performed in order to fit the patient’s needs and gain the best results. The most often used method in combination with the varicose surgery is the sclerotherapy (used for small adjustments to finalize the treatment).

Surgery: In case of a classic surgery, the patient comes in an early morning on an empty stomach. After going through the administrative part, the surgeon comes to examine the patient once more and to mark the varicose veins on the legs. After pre-medication (a tablet or an injection before the surgery) the patient is taken to the operating room. After the surgery, the patient is moved back to his/her room. In approximately two hours, the patient wakes up and is taken for a walk (15 minutes). The doctor may prescribe some painkillers if needed. You can eat and drink without any restrictions. After one-day hospitalization the patient leaves home. A check up with the surgeon is planned to monitor the results. The other approaches are not painful. Only a numbing gel is applied before the surgery. When hospitalization is not needed, you should arrange your own escort to accompany you on your way home. In case any scars left after the surgery, they are almost invisible.

Recovery: An elastic band or tights have to be worn 24 hours a day until the first check up (normally 10 days after the surgery). The surgeon sets the date of the first check up. If there are stiches, they are removed 7 – 14 days after the surgery. Also the first shower of the operated location has to be allowed by the surgeon during the first check up. The second check up is in about a month after the surgery. Just then, the surgeon evaluates the results. The length of the whole recovery depends on the extent of the surgery and the overall health situation of the patient.

Price: The price depends on the type of treatment. Classic surgery costs XXX. Laser surgery costs 20 500 CZK.  Mini invasive surgery CHIVA costs XXX. Besides the price of the surgery, the clients pay for the anesthesia (3 000 CZK) and hospitalization. The hospitalization price differs by the type of room (one bed room 2 500 CZK/night, two bed room 1 500 CZK/night, four bed room 600 CZK/night). Pre-ops cost XXX.
