Surgery is good modality for varicose veins. We have other treatment options also- Ablative procedures, including sclerotherapy, endovenous radiofrequency or laser ablation. U can consider any of the following (depending upon the advice and ur comfort). All are good and effective.

my father in law has it. u should try to meet some good doctor with a personal touch. my father in law now wearing some kind of socks, specially made on order, very very very effective in controlling the vericose veins. u must consult a good doctor and ask for socks, wear them as suggested by doctor, change them after every few months as advised by a doctor, keep always one extra pair handy. trust me u will get relief. Best wishes

My mother is a teacher. She needs to stand for long time in the class room. She got some veins visible on her legs. We saw a doctor he told this is varicose veins. It occurs if you stand for long time daily. He also told she needs surgery to cure this.
