Dombivli Man’s 33 yearlong battle against Varicose Veins ends at the age of 53

- Mr. Avinash Mestry was treated in June 2019, with endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) for varicose veins.

- "Nearly 25-30% population suffers from varicose veins; in females, the incidence is higher," says Dr Ashish Dhadas

Mumbai - Varicose veins gave rough time to a 53-year-old ex-club cricketer Mr. Avinash Mestry who was suffering from varicose veins for nearly 33 years. After undergoing laser treatment at Surekha Varicose Veins Clinic, Dombivli, the patient was discharged within 24 hours and resumed his routine work in 48 hours.

Mr. Avinash Mestry used to play professional club cricket in his younger days. He developed the disease at a young age of 20. However, the disease was neglected since he did not have symptoms in the initial stage apart from the fact that the large, unsightly veins were visible.

Over a period of time, he started developing pain, swelling of the legs and blackening of the skin over the leg. It was only after small ulcers (non-healing wound) started developing on his leg that he decided to seek treatment. The patient was then referred to Surekha Varicose Veins Clinic, Dombivli

Dr. Ashish Dhadas, Varicose Veins expert, Surekha Varicose Veins Clinic, Dombivli, said, “Varicose veins are enlarged, dilated, tortuous veins with poorly functioning valves. Majority of the patients who suffer from varicose veins are unaware of the disease pathology and the complications it can lead to.”

Dr. Dhadas added, “Varicose veins can cause serious complications as the disease progresses. It is easier to treat varicose veins in the early stages and the results are extremely good. In advanced stages, treatment is difficult and results take time. Laser Treatment of Varicose Veins is an accepted and preferred modality of treatment worldwide. It is superior to open surgery in terms of results. Also, it is scarless, painless and the patient can resume his routine work within 48-72 hours."

EVLT is Endovenous Laser Treatment of varicose veins. It is painless, scarless and there are no/minimal complications. The patient can resume his/her daily activities at the earliest.

Mr. Avinash Mestry said - "I was suffering from varicose veins since the age of 20 but was unaware of this disease. However, over a period of time, I started developing pain, swelling of the legs and blackening of the skin over the leg. For the past few months, I observed non-healing wounds on my leg when it struck me that something has gone wrong. A mutual friend suggested to me about Dr. Ashish Dhadas's Surekha Varicose Veins Clinic. I met Dr. Dhadas and after examining my problem he concluded that I had suffered from Varicose Veins for far too long. However, after the laser treatment of varicose veins at the age of 53, my 33 years of pain and swelling have gone off. Also, the wounds have healed. I am thankful to Dr.Ashish Dhadas for the right guidance and treatment.”
