😃 Prepped for our varicose veins procedure!
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged, and painful veins that fill with blood. They usually develop in the legs and are raised above the surface of the skin. You may also experience pain, swelling, heaviness, restless legs and achiness over or around the enlarged veins. 👨🏻⚕️Consultation: Our Board Certified Surgeon will sit down to discuss your medical history, examine your legs and visible veins. And may also want to do an ultrasound to check your blood flow. A noninvasive test that uses high-frequency sound waves allows your doctor to see how blood is flowing in your veins. And help ensure that another disorder like a blood clot or a blockage isn’t causing the pain and swelling in your legs.
Risk factors include: Age, family history, being a woman, pregnancy, obesity, hormonal replacement or contraception therapy, prolonged sitting or standing, and others. 🎯 Prevention: Avoid standing for extended periods of time. Try to maintain a healthy weight. Exercise to improve your circulation. Use compression socks or stockings. Elevate your legs when ever you’re resting or sleeping 💉Procedure: You’ll be awake during the entire procedure. Your doctor will use ultrasound to visualize the vein and your leg will be cleaned with sterile solution, & numbed with a local anesthetic 😴 Physician will then insert a wire catheter along the vein to apply radiofrequency energy along its wall. The damage vein will eventually shrink and be reabsorbed by your body over time. 💵 Cost: Most insurance cover this treatment. Call our office for more information ☎️ 248.851.8346
