Since the skin on the top of the feet is delicate, varicose veins here can be uncomfortable and make it difficult to walk and wear certain types of shoes, such as high heels. Left untreated, ulcerations can develop from these veins because the skin is so delicate.
Symptoms of varicose veins:
Itching in the legs and feet
Restlessness in the feet and legs
Increased pain when sitting or standing
Treatment of Foot Veins
We treat these veins with our phlebectomy procedure, which ensures that these affected veins are removed from the foot completely, so there is no risk of flare-ups.
How is the phlebectomy treatment performed?
This procedure is started by numbing the affected region, followed by making a small incision in order to properly remove the vein. The vein or veins are extracted through tiny incisions made in the skin with hook-like tools. Extraction is painless and done quickly. Depending on the situation stitches may be necessary, however, they are removed within a few days. Normal activities can be resumed within 24 hours after phlebectomy.
