Have you ever been to a doctor that treats you like a number?
They are in and out in fifteen minutes or less. After they leave the room, you sit there wondering if they even heard a word of what you said while they were in there with you. It’s a terrible feeling as a patient to not even know if you were heard. Thankfully, the experience at Vein Clinics of America is very different. They really make it a priority to listen to their patients and come up with a treatment plan that truly considers your health, well-being and lifestyle.
Besides truly caring for you, the patient, let’s take a look at what else they do.
Veins and Vein Disease
Most people aren’t aware that vein conditions appearing to be just a cosmetic issue are often caused by vein disease. Treatment for vein disease is not a one size fits all treatment. Every patient is unique and there for the treatment for vein disease must be as well. To get started, the best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with a Vein Clinics of America network vein specialist. The vein specialist will evaluate you and your specific condition and then go over treatment recommendations and the possible number of treatments based on what you need.
Varicose Vein Treatment Specialists
Varicose veins are the bulging veins that you can sometimes see above the skin. They can also exist much deeper though, underneath the skin’s surface where they can’t be seen. If they are hidden underneath the skin’s surface, they vein disease can sometimes progress without you even knowing. Varicose Vein Treatment Specialists are trained to find and treat these unhealthy veins as well, which is why it’s important to seek out a vascular specialist.
Spider Veins Treatment Specialists
While spider veins are tiny, spider web like veins, like are actually a mild symptom of varicose vein disease. Just like varicose veins, they are caused by veins that have unhealthy valves. The unhealthy valve allows blood to blow backwards instead of upwards toward your heart. Besides the cosmetic issue spider veins cause, they can also be quite painful. Seeking the help from Spider Veins Treatment Specialists can help you relieve both the pain and the cosmetic symptoms.
Endovenous Laser Treatment
Vein Clinics of America offers Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment (EVLA) is often referred to simply as “Laser Treatment.” Laser light is delivered through a small optic fiber that the doctor inserts into veins that have unhealthy valves. The laser light heats and collapses the veins, which are then absorbed by your body. Endovenous Laser Treatment is almost always done with the guidance of ultrasound and naturally improves your circulation.
Other vein conditions can include; certain rashes, hyper-pigmentation, edema, lipdermatosclerosis and even restless leg syndrome , It’s important to understand that vein disease progresses over time. The symptoms and the condition will almost always get worse if left untreated. Leaving vein conditions untreated can also lead to more serious problems down the road, which of course we all want to avoid.
