Frequently Asked Questions
Veins do not grow back after treatment. At PRK Hospitals, we have two common ways to treat varicose veins. The first is a minimally invasive laser treatment where we treat the vein through just a needle and a catheter. The second treatment option is open surgery where we make small cuts in the leg to physically remove the veins. Both of these procedures are very effective. More often than not, if veins do come back, they typically present years later and these are new varicose veins from alternate pathways since the initial vein was removed.
After a venous ablation procedure—varicose vein removal surgery—we recommend that patients refrain from any heavy exercise for the first 24 hours after the procedure. But after that, generally, we recommend that you do what feels comfortable. For most patients, their leg feels back to normal after roughly one week and they can go about doing their regular exercise.
At PRK Hospitals, we use minimally invasive techniques to open blood vessels using a simple needle stick with catheters and guidewires. Patients typically feel better right away and can go from walking less than one block to being able to walk an unlimited distance without pain by the next day.
At PRK Hospitals, we offer treatment for a wide variety of vascular conditions and disorders. These include PAD, carotid artery stenosis, aneurysms, renal artery stenosis and more. To learn more about the disorders we treat, see our Conditions page.
