An estimated 30 million people suffer from superficial venous insufficiency or varicose veins. While vein disease is common, it isn’t normal. You don’t have to live with leg pain or discomfort. Many people incorrectly chalk their symptoms up to simply getting older. This often isn’t the case. Symptoms are often a sign of venous reflux caused by failed valves in two key veins that run down both legs – The great saphenous and small saphenous veins. After treating these veins, the body naturally reroutes blood to healthy veins either significantly reducing symptoms or often eliminating them altogether.
Many people wait until their symptoms are negatively impacting their quality of life before they seek treatment. Small adjustments like wearing compression stockings or elevating your feet may help temporarily alleviate symptoms of varicose veins, however they aren’t a long-term solution. A quick one-hour procedure in our office could save you a lot of pain and further complications. Our vein specialists will listen to all of your concerns and help determine the best course of action.
If you’re experiencing unexplainable leg pain, abnormal vein bulging, or discoloration of your legs you might have vein disease. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms with spider veins or varicose veins, contact RejuVeination.
Why should you visit a Vein Clinic?
A vein specialist has credentials in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, and overall vascular care. Vein stripping used to be done by general surgeons. Now doctors can seek continuing education and specialty training in phlebology or through the American Vein and Lymphatic Society. Specialization and additional training will ensure that you are seeing a qualified vein doctor. Dr. Marios Panayides has 40 years of experience!
Vein doctors excel at early diagnosis and minimally invasive procedures. Varicose vein doctors do a diagnostic ultrasound to discover the root cause and create a treatment plan. The cause of varicose veins varies, but the root problem likely originates with either the great sapphenous or small saphenous vein, or both.
The leading cause for varicose veins is hereditary. Women tend to develop vein issues more often than men (3 to 1), however men tend to develop more severe varicose veins. If you have family history of vein disease, educate yourself about associated symptoms and varicose veins. It is important to note that you will not also see spider veins or varicose veins when vein disease is present. It is more important to be aware of the symptoms and the progression of those symptoms over time. If you have a family history of vein issues and you start to get symptoms, you should be seen by a vein specialists.
While their appearance may be bothersome, our vein specialists know that varicose veins are more than simply a cosmetic issue. Varicose veins can lead to ulcers, ankle swelling, and leg cramps at night. The elimination of varicose veins can reduce the development of blood clots in the legs by five to six times! When a procedure is deemed medically necessary, it is covered by insurance. We want to make sure you get the best care possible at an affordable cost.
