Considering the growing lifestyle issue Varicose Veins. Mumbai based leading varicose veins speciality clinic chain – The Vein Center organized a health awareness campaign. In India, Varicose Veins affects more than 10 million Indians every year. As part of its awareness initiative, Dr. Saurabh Joshi had conducted screening and awareness activities about the latest technology name Venaseal, which is painless, no anaesthesia required or saline injection needs to be given. Importantly, it can be treated within 30min. Venaseal is the only USFDA Approved Adhesive based instant varicose veins closure system in the world. It is the only method which does not require extensive use of stockings after the procedure.
Varicose veins are swollen, tortuous, and sometimes painful veins that are filled with an abnormal collection of blood. They are known to be common among professionals such as journalists, traffic police, teachers, nurses, shopkeepers, and bus conductors, performing artists, surgeons, hospitality industry, who have to stand for a long time daily. If left untreated, it can lead to several complications such as ulcers, bleeding, and thromboembolism. The Vein Center, in particular, is addressing lifestyle and risk factors such as standing for a long time daily, obesity, pregnancy, smoking, and family history through its screening and awareness campaign.
“The major reason of getting varicose veins is a lifestyle issue where people are dedicated to sit in the same position for a longer duration or stand for a long period of time on the field and have no knowledge of controlling it. Newer techniques like Venaseal would help in curing more fellow Indians faster and more comfortably. It is a real boon for the older population with advanced vein disease like severe pain, skin damage and open wounds which earlier could not be treated as they would not be fit enough for anaesthesia.” says Dr. Saurabh Joshi, MD, FNVIR, Founder of The Vein Center, Mumbai.
