The so-called microcirculation is a medical problem that is not always given the attention it deserves, but it is at the root of problems such as cellulite or varicose veins, which affect a very broad spectrum of the population, "70 percent of people have a circulation problem in the legs ”, underlines the vascular surgeon, Paolo Casoni, in the interview with

The doctor, who works with important research studies in Italy, also takes care of his patients at Ceram Hospital, in Marbella, and has a special ability to explain in a simple way what this type of problem consists of. “Dirty blood rises to the heart which needs to be cleaned. The longer it stays in the leg, the more toxic it is, which is why it is very important for health, "he points out.

Bad habits are at the root of many of these pathologies. "We have patients who do not take care of themselves, do not control their weight, neglect physical activity and when they are 50 or 60 they start having problems," says the doctor, who also points out how we make mistakes in priorities, since " many people use cosmetics or aesthetics to look younger. The reality is very different. We have to work inside our body, think about health, "he stresses.

Stopping at varicose veins, Dr. Casoni, who has advanced innovative treatment methods, believes that “many people think it's just surgery, they are afraid and they don't. Today we have the opportunity to do hemodynamic studies that last half an hour to form a map of your circulation, which from one leg to the other can vary by up to 50 percent. In this way, a precise treatment can be designed for each person who, in 90 percent of cases, is outpatient, without anesthesia or with a small local anesthesia », he explains in the interview.

Even if these are problems often considered chronic and permanent, the truth is that a cure is possible, even if, the doctor warns, “when the treatment ends, the patient needs a follow-up. Every six months, or every year, you need to have a check-up ".
