During your first visit, you will meet with one of our physicians for a consultation appointment. At this appointment we will examine you, discuss your diagnosis and treatment options, and review your insurance benefits with you.
There are three methods for treating varicose veins. The first method, vein stripping was used for more than a century to treat varicose veins. Unfortunately, this method required general anesthesia, a hospital stay and up to four weeks of painful recovery before resuming normal activities.
Symptoms of varicose veins and other vein diseases come in many forms and should be taken seriously. Sometimes symptoms (including bulging veins, blue veins and enlarged veins) are indicative of an underlying condition (venous reflux), which can progressively get worse over time if not treated.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms in your legs contact us today for a free screening:
Swelling – Swelling or edema may occur in the lower part of the leg, usually around the ankle or in the feet. This is often more pronounced after longer periods of standing or sitting. Swelling often indicates vein problems occurring below the surface of the skin. An evaluation by a vein specialist should be sought.
Bulging Veins and Enlarged Veins – Bulging veins that are swollen and raised above the skin surface (generally called 'varicose veins') can occur anywhere on the leg, but are most often found on the inner thigh and/or the inner lower leg or calf. These may often be described as ‘ropey’ in appearance.
Burning or Throbbing Veins – Sensations of muscles cramping and veins that may be warm to the touch
Bleeding – Bleeding may be due to a ruptured surface vein or more rarely be associated with a venous ulcer, one of the most severe forms of vein disease. This most often occurs on the lower leg or ankle. You should elevate your leg, apply pressure over the bleeding site, and seek medical help immediately.
Red or Blue Veins – Small red or blue veins found closer to the skin surface (generally called 'spider veins'). Red or blue veins may vary in size, but are often web-like with branches like a tree.
Skin Discoloration – Change of skin color (darkening) in areas around the affected veins. Can be brown or red and is often shiny. Certain conditions may cause whitening or hardening of the skin.
The initial evaluation for diagnosing venous disease and subsequent treatments are now covered by insurance.
Leg Pain – Severe tenderness of your veins, especially when sensitive to touch.
