Chandigarh 22nd October:- Punjab cardio vascular surgeon, Dr Harinder Singh Bedi delivered a guest lecture on latest advances in minimally invasive surgery at 26th Annual Conference of the prestigious Vascular Society of India (VSI) in Hyderabad on Saturday.

In his lecture he said that vascular surgery is progressing at an astounding pace. The world is moving beyond lasers, the current commonest method of therapy  to even better  non thermal techniques for varicose veins.

Dr H S Bedi who is Director-Cardio Vascular Endovascular & Thoracic Sciences at Ivy Hospital, Mohali explained that we have moved beyond from open surgical technique for treating varicose veins (dilated abnormal leg veins) to minimally invasive laser techniques. However laser produces high heat and causes pain and needs some anesthesia.

Dr H S Bedi said that now newer techniques which use sophisticated biocompatible glue or a device called Flebogrif are being used, he said. These produce no heat and cause no pain  and  return to work is on the very next day of the procedure with mid -term results are excellent.
