Varicose veins are no longer an incurable problem. Nowadays, an innovative technique called CHIVA is completely changing this situation. This article will delve into the CHIVA surgical procedure and its recovery period, analyzing how it creates a new era of comfortable treatment.
The CHIVA surgery is designed based on the principles of minimally invasive, precise, and efficient procedures. The treatment process only takes 30 to 60 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. During this process, doctors use ultrasound hemodynamic localization techniques to accurately identify the problematic veins and modify their blood flow direction through minimally invasive surgery. This method is widely applicable to all varicose vein patients, particularly those with underlying conditions or those who are not suitable for traditional large incision removal surgeries, highlighting its significant advantages.
Based on extensive clinical data from Dr.Smile Medical Group, the recovery period after CHIVA surgery is not only short but also highly comfortable. After the procedure, patients can almost immediately resume their daily activities and work without the need for long-term rest or recovery. Only a few patients may experience minor discomfort in the early postoperative period, such as localized phlebitis, but these symptoms are temporary and generally subside naturally within a few weeks.
To further optimize the postoperative experience, we provide patients with detailed care guidelines. Patients are advised to engage in moderate physical activity and avoid prolonged standing or sitting. Suitable exercises such as walking or swimming can help improve blood circulation and accelerate recovery. Based on long-term tracking feedback, patients who undergo CHIVA treatment at Dr.Smile Medical Group no longer require routine use of medical compression stockings. This is because the CHIVA technique reduces venous pressure while preserving the integrity of the venous drainage network, thereby avoiding common complications associated with traditional surgeries such as hematomas, swelling, and nerve damage.
Among patients at Dr.Smile Medical Group, CHIVA surgery has garnered extremely high satisfaction rates. They highly praise the significant improvement in their postoperative quality of life and the substantial increase in comfort.
In conclusion, the CHIVA technique has opened a new era of comfortable treatment for varicose veins. Patients not only receive precise surgical treatment but also recover and enjoy the most comfortable treatment experience in the shortest possible time.
