Your regular physician is an excellent place to start when you have a health concern. This is your go-to source for information concerning your wellness. However, visit our vein doctor when you have a specific concern about your veins. Our specialist can assess the condition of your veins and offer you solutions when you have a problem.
Depending on your condition, we can also perform appropriate treatments to improve your vein health. When it comes to a struggle with varicose veins and spider veins, our vein doctor can explain your alternatives. You can choose which direction you want to go in order to address concerns with your veins.
If varicose veins are really bothering you, you can do something about it. We may begin by recommending changes in lifestyle and the use of compressions stockings. However, these alternatives will not make your varicose veins go away. They will only provide you with some relief from the discomfort that comes with swollen veins. If you want to eliminate your varicose veins for good, our doctor can lead the way.
One of the most common approaches for eliminating varicose veins is sclerotherapy. The process involves injecting a solution into your affected vein. This solution makes the wall of the vein collapse so that the vein will no longer allow blood to pass through it. Your body will compensate for your blocked vein by sending it through another vein. Before treatment, your vein had a faulty valve that caused blood to flow back and form a pool. This caused the bulge in your vein. When you choose sclerotherapy, the blood will stop pooling in the treated vein. Eventually, your varicose vein will disappear as it is naturally absorbed by the body. We also offer other forms of effective varicose and spider vein treatments, including Venefit™ and VeinGogh™.
