I am a Vascular Intervention and Varicose Vein Specialist. I'm a consultant at Holy Family Hospital. I have my regular OPDs on Wednesday. I specialize in vascular interventions, venous interventions, Tomko interventions, and neurovascular interventions. My specialized field of interest, however, involves varicose vein ulcers, varicose veins, and peripheral arterial disease, predominantly diabetic ulcers.

Vascular interventions are really an upcoming field now. Presently a lot of patients who have ulcers in the foot have been ignored. They're going for an amputation. What I would recommend is to get a sonography done of your leg, to find out if any vascular involvement is there and this can lead to any kind of peripheral vascular disease which can now be treated with modern technology and expertise and give excellent results. Which can prevent amputation. My mission in the Holy Family Hospital is to save the legs because predominantly in olden times. When you have an ulcer, the first line of treatment was amputation. Now it has completely been eradicated. You don't need to get amputated. If you can revascularize that particular blood vessel or you can treat it by endovenous laser ablation. Both venous and arterial ulcers can be treated successfully.
