Getting to Know You
Before recommending any treatments, your vein specialist will sit down with you to thoroughly discuss your symptoms and your health history. It helps us to understand more background behind potential causes for your venous insufficiency issues.
You can expect to answer questions about whether or not you’ve ever had spider or varicose veins and what kind of symptoms you’ve experienced. Symptoms we ask about typically include:
- Leg heaviness or fatigue
- Restless legs
- Itching or burning skin
- Leg or ankle swelling
- Leg pain, aching, cramping, or throbbing
- Skin discoloration or texture changes
- Open wounds or sores
Because vein issues do often relate to your genetics, we’ll ask about your family history of venous insufficiency in addition to other risk-factor questions, like whether or not you sit or stand for long periods of time, smoke cigarettes, or other behaviors that impact your likelihood to develop vein disease.
After discussing the problems that brought you in, your provider will use ultrasound technology to view the soft tissue and blood vessels in your affected area. This gives a clear look at the problem for a fast and accurate diagnosis, without the need for invasive X-Rays or other methods.
Our vein specialists offer vein treatments that fit into anyone’s schedule or lifestyle.
These vein solutions include:
Your Treatment and Follow-Up
Everyone’s vein treatment process will look a little bit different. Often, we’re able to move directly from your diagnosis into treatment, thanks to our minimally invasive and convenient treatment options.
Your provider will make sure you have a complete understanding of what to expect from your treatment before it begins. This includes understanding whether you will need multiple treatments to achieve total relief as well as the steps you need to take at home to ensure success.
Before you leave, you’ll have everything you need to embrace a life with healthier veins.
