What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are large, swollen veins that often appear on the legs and feet. They happen when the valves in the veins do not work properly, so the blood does not flow effectively.
Varicose veins may be a sign of something more severe- venous reflux disease. Healthy leg veins have valves that keep blood flowing to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when the valves stop working properly and allow blood to flow backward and pool in the lower leg veins.
When should I talk to a doctor about varicose veins?
To help prevent further vascular health problems we suggest you make an appointment if you have any varicose veins. If not treated further problems such as bleeding veins, leg ulcers, and blood clots may occur.
Superficial venous reflux disease treatment aims to reduce or stop the backward flow of blood. Our team of experts will help determine what treatment is best for you. Depending on the size and location of your varicose veins, we may be able to suggest lifestyle changes that could help you. Wearing compression stockings may also be a suggestion to make sure your veins are being supported with gentle pressure. If your veins are more severe we may remove or close diseased vein.
Our VenaSeal Closure System is a non-thermal treatment option which improves blood flow and relieves symptoms by sealing or closing the diseased vein. This system delivers a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive to the diseased vein. The adhesive permanently seals the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins. The VenaSeal is a safe and effective treatment, providing significant improvement in your quality of life.
Our Vein Clinic specializes in guaranteeing you have a comfortable experience.
