Veins are blood vessels that carry blood from all parts of your body back to your heart. When a vein becomes damaged blood is unable to return to the central circulation and accumulates in the vessel which forces the vein walls to bulge. Venous disease can put people at risk for various cosmetic conditions. While bulging veins and skin discoloration may be considered cosmetic, many times these are painful and can lead to ulcerations and further wound that could lead to significant other medical problems.
We perform ablations to treat venous stasis or insufficiency. A slow or improper transfer of blood from the legs back to the heart results in a pooling of blood and puts patients at increased risk for venous insufficiency.
Venous stasis and/or insufficiency issues range from swelling and skin changes to the formation of dangerous clots.
Common symptoms of patients who may need this service include: 50+ years old, obesity, family history of CVI (chronic venous insufficiency), personal history of blood clots, past or current pregnancy, swelling of lower legs, and/or thrombosed veins (i.e. “spider veins”)
We offer vein treatments at all of our locations.
