Our physicians performed the first documented Laser treatment of Varicose Veins in the country on 6th January 2003 at Jaslok Hospital. Thousands of our patients have benefitted from non-surgical methods of treatment of Varicose veins, using various techniques such as Laser, Radiofrequency ablation and Foam Sclerotherapy, MOCA, Glue treatment and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. Patients from all over India and from over 30 countries have visited Doctor House Vein Care Centre for valuable expert opinion on Varicose veins, and treatment. We have had the privilege of treating Captains of Industry, Leading Politicians, Film and Television artists and leaders of Civil society. However, we are very strict about valuing patient confidentiality at our centre, and no patient information is shared without the express consent of our patients.

At our centre, each patient undergoes a thorough evaluation for his/her vein condition, including a detailed clinical evaluation followed by Ultrasound tests, and other examinations if required. The proposed method of treatment is individualized for each patient, as many patients will only need conservative methods of management such as medications and compression stockings. Those with advanced or painful disease are given the option of opting for advanced non-surgical therapy. Our well experienced assistant doctors and nurses (male and female) help in following up and managing our patients after treatment procedures are completed. Our team is accredited with leading hospitals such as the Jaslok Hospital, Apollo Spectra Hospital and the Currae Hospitals, wherein patients can be admitted for treatment under medical insurance cover. We also have a very well-equipped operating suite at our Centre at Doctor House, for those patients not covered by Insurance.
