Varicose vein surgery is a procedure involving removal or blocking of varicose veins. Varicose veins occur when veins fail to circulate blood and become enlarged and dilated and overfilled with blood. Varicose veins can be extremely painful if severe and may thwart a patient’s normal functioning which poses a need for surgery.
A simple examination from the doctor can determine whether one has varicose veins. The doctor would generally examine a patient when they are standing or seated and inquire about the symptoms that the patient may be experiencing. An ultrasound might also be needed to check the blood flow in the body. A venogram may also be suggested. A venogram is a test that makes the veins visible on an X-ray with the help of a contrast dye.
Doctors usually suggest lifestyle changes and more non invasive methods when treating varicose veins. However, if the condition is too severe, and is harmful to the patient’s health, surgery may be required. There are a few different types of options available for treating varicose veins as listed below:
Invasive procedures like vein stripping can cause symptoms like severe pain, swelling and bruising. It can also cause blood clots and infections in rare cases. Other procedures however, do not involve many risks and complications.
Procedures like vein stripping and ligation and endoscopic vein surgery require a rest and recovery period of anywhere between 1-4 weeks. Patients opting for treatments like laser surgery and ablation can go home the same day and return to normal activities within a couple days. Certain lifestyle changes may be advised by the doctor to prevent and minimalize effects of varicose veins.

A cardiologist is a trained medical professional with special training and skill in finding, treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels, which is the cardiovascular system.
Cardiology is a complex field, so cardiologists specialize in different areas. All cardiologists are clinical cardiologists as they focus on the diagnosis, medical management, and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Some clinical cardiologists specialize in pediatric cardiology, so they also diagnose and treat heart problems in children. An adult cardiologist is the clinical cardiologists who treat only adult patients. Other clinical cardiologists who specialize in interventional procedures like angiography, angioplasty, stenting, and TAVI are called the interventional cardiologist.
With statistics like heart disease being among the number one killers, there is no reason for anyone to not to be worried. General cardiologists are practitioners that focus on the heart, so If you are at risk for heart disease, a routine check-up with a cardiologist can help you to be on top of your heart health.
And in case you are wondering how to be sure that you are at risk for heart disease, then you can look at the certain common symptoms shown by your body that usually point to heart disease. Whenever you feel chest pain that is radiating towards the left side or to the back of your body, you should immediately consult an experienced cardiologist. You should also consult a heart doctor when you experience severe pressure in the chest, shortness of breath while walking and continues while you are at rest, Irregular heartbeats leading to palpitations, sudden clenching pain in jaws, or when you undergo excessive sweating continuously for a long period of time without any exercise.
Cardiologists perform the following tests:
You should get your heart checked as often as possible, and this is especially true when your family has a risk for heart disease. You should get your blood pressure checked every year, and according to the American Heart Association, the screening tests for coronary artery disease should begin at age 20, cholesterol test at age of 25, and blood glucose screening should begin at age 45.
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in cardiovascular disease and are able to treat conditions ranging from severe hypertension to elevated cholesterol to heart rhythm problems. Cardiologists also are able to perform procedures that both help diagnose and treat many cardiac conditions, for example, cardiologists can perform stress tests to uncover coronary disease, conduct echocardiograms to diagnose holes in the heart or other issues with heart valves; they may even order monitoring of the heart to uncover rhythm issues like atrial fibrillation. In addition, to treat these specific problems, specialized cardiologists like Interventional cardiologists can close small holes in the heart, place stents in clogged arteries, and place specialized devices in the heart. Cardiac surgeons come from a very different background and are usually the general surgeons who chose to further specialize as cardiac surgeons and limit their practice to the heart arteries and heart valves.
If you test on the high side for blood pressure and yet your regular doctor says you're blood pressure is controllable, you could still benefit from seeing a preventive cardiologist. Preventive cardiologists are a special type of clinical cardiologists whose goal is to prevent cardiovascular diseases and to reduce the burden of them in populations and improve the quality of life and life expectancy in individuals with such diseases.
In your first cardiologist appointment, you are usually greeted by a member of the nursing staff who measures your weight and height in order to calculate your body mass
(BMI). At this stage, you are normally asked to go for one of the following tests:
