Jaipur, 19th February, 2019.
Fortis Escorts Hospital today announced the launch of sophisticated treatment methods of laser technology and radio frequency, becoming the only healthcare provider is entire Rajasthan to offer advanced interventions for dilated veins and ano-rectal diseases under a roof. With the introduction of the treatment methods, the hospital aims to provide lasting relief to patients suffering from varicose vein, and piles, fissure, fistula, and pilonidal sinus diseases.
Laser vein treatment, also known as laser ablation or endovenous laser ablation therapy (EVLT or EVLA) uses laser energy to heat the vein. The radio frequency vein treatment, also known as radio frequency ablation (RFA), or the venefit procedure, utilizes radio frequency energy to heat the vein. In continuation of its legacy to introduce and provide advance technology and superior healthcare, Fortis Escorts Hospital Jaipur, brings both the technology for a comprehensive care.
Radio frequency and laser ablation techniques are complimentary to each other and are used according to the condition and treatment requirement of the patient. Hence, laser treatment is useful for obese patients as it is helpful to see the exact position of laser fibre in vein through light. On the other hand, radio frequency treatment is useful in high-risk patients of varicose vein because it takes lesser time to ablate the vein.
“We are already treating varicose veins by radio frequency ablation technology for many years and several patients have benefitted by this minimally-invasive technology. We are adding laser technology for varicose veins to our existing treatments and that makes us the only centre in Rajasthan where all treatment modalities for varicose veins and other anorectal diseases are available under one roof,” said Dr. Hemendra Sharma, Laser and Minimal Access Surgeon, Fortis Escort Hospital, Jaipur.
“There are a handful of centres in India that have both the technologies for treating patients. The methods offer a safe alternative to patients – unlike in an open surgery for anal fistula where large incision is made, laser technology requires minimal incision. The advantages of such surgeries are minimal scar, less pain, day-care procedure, and early return to work that makes laser technology very useful for anorectal operations” said Dr. Shrikant Swami Medical Director, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur
