Vein Care Specialists Close to Home
Are your legs tired, heavy or achy? Do you have painful varicose veins? Do you have skin changes to your legs?
Many people think that lower leg swelling, and discoloration is cosmetic, but it is actually a physical condition we can treat. The underlying medical problem is vein valves that don’t work well. This is sometimes called venous insufficiency or venous reflux. We can evaluate you and perform an ultrasound to determine the amount of reflux in your legs.
Types of Treatment
Compression stockings – These can be over the counter or prescription. Often insurance companies will assist with payment.
Sclerotherapy – A tiny needle is used to inject a solution that is similar medical super glue that will seal or close the diseased vein. Blood is rerouted to nearby healthy veins.
Radio frequency ablation (RFA) – A small thin tube is inserted into the vein, heated up, and this closes/heats up the vein behind it. This surgery prevents the backfilling of the vein, which will reduce swelling (edema) and pain in the lower legs. Eventually the vein will be reabsorbed by the body. This procedure is a same day surgery.
