Hi doctor,

My uncle has blood sugar, which is under control. He had laser treatment for varicose vein in the last month for one leg. Now, the doctor suggested that he needs to go for joint replacement for both the legs. Some of the doctors saying that there is some complexity as he had treatment for varicose vein. Is it really true? His age is 62. Presently, he is walking with pain. What is your suggestion? Can we go for joint replacement after a few months? Or can we go for it by next month itself?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Joint replacement surgery increase the chance of thromboembolic events, especially if you are immobilized after the surgery.
  • My recommendation is to avoid the stress of second surgery and wait for a couple of months before going for total knee replacement surgery.
