Low risk | Low Pain

During these procedures, which have very low risk and in which the patients do not feel pain, highly technological devices are used. As a result of the procedure, higher quality of life is ensured compared to other surgical methods, time required to stay at the hospital is reduced and most of the time, patients are discharged on the same day or the next day depending on the type of procedure.

To diagnose you, your doctor may use Duplex Doppler ultrasound, a non-invasive diagnostic test, to further evaluate the veins. Options include surgical removal and using laser or high-frequency sound waves in a minimally invasive procedure.
