Varicose Veins Treatment in Turkey

Compare 6 clinics

Varicose veins treatment, also known as varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is a procedure performed in order to remove varicose veins.

Varicose veins are veins that have become twisted or enlarged. Although the term usually refers to the veins in the legs area, varicose veins can appear in almost all parts of the body.

Varicose veins are quite common in the superficial veins of the legs, due to high pressure placed upon them when standing. This not only a cosmetic problem, but a health one as well. Without treatment, this condition can also lead to:

● Leg swelling
● Venous eczema
● Skin thickening
● Ulceration
● Deep vein thrombosis

Varicose veins treatment, also known as varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is a safe procedure, because most of the blood circulation in the legs area is done through the deep veins, not the superficial veins which are susceptible to becoming varicose. Therefore, the veins may be removed without any problems.

Varicose Veins Treatment Candidates

Varicose veins treatment, also known as varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is recommended primarily for individuals suffering from varicose veins. Individuals suffering from varicose veins are also affected from one or more of the following:

● Aching, heavy legs
● Swelled ankles
● Skin discolouration
● Redness, itchiness or dryness of the skin in certain areas
● Cramps
● Longer healing time for minor injuries in the leg area
● Restless leg syndrome
● White patches of skin around the ankles

Am I Suitable for Varicose Veins Treatment?

Varicose veins treatment, also known as varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is not recommended for patients who cannot be active after the procedure – this can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis. Pregnant women should not have vein stripping surgery or varicose vein removal surgery because some veins simply heal by themselves after delivery.

Preparing for Varicose Veins Treatment

Before going in for varicose vein removal surgery or vein stripping surgery, patients need to undergo a number of tests, including ECG, blood tests and ultrasound scans. These tests are made in order to ensure that the patient qualifies for the surgery.

How is Varicose Veins Treatment Performed?

Vein stripping surgery or varicose veins treatment surgery can be done either under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia, it depends on the location of the veins.

Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will proceed to create one or more incisions in the affected vein area. Then, a special wire will be introduced into the vein, deep enough to tie to it. The wire is then pulled out, along with the affected vein. The tiny incisions are then stitched up and the area is wrapped in dressings.

A pressure bandage, along with a compression garment may also be applied. Patients can be asked to spend a night in hospital, under medical supervision.

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.
