At the Center for Advanced Vein Care, we see many variations and stages of vein conditions. Some of them are more serious than others, but all of them are treatable. When you have a vein condition, it is crucial that you come to our vein clinic for help. You don’t have to live with the pain, shame, and limitations that come with vein problems. Our vein care center offers a variety of treatments for vein conditions of all kinds, and with the help of our expert vein doctors, you can feel like yourself again. Here are some of the most common vein conditions we treat:
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins near the surface of the skin. They can be unattractive, painful, and can sometimes lead to other problems, some of which can be very serious. At our vein clinic, varicose vein treatments are one of the most common medical services we provide. As experts in varicose veins, you can rest assured that you are in good hands when you come to our vein clinic for help with your varicose veins.
Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They can develop anywhere on the body, but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. While they generally do not cause medical issues, spider veins are unsightly and may cause shame and embarrassment. At Center for Advanced Vein Care, we offer two types of treatment to either eliminate or reduce the appearance of spider veins so you can feel confident again.
Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when there is disruption of the normal flow of blood within the veins over a long period of time. Blood does not flow through the circulatory system as efficiently as it should, and may pool in the lower parts of the body. This condition can be extremely uncomfortable, and may lead to leg ulcers, so it is crucial that it is treated properly. Our expert vein doctors can help you with effective treatment and certain lifestyle changes to ease your symptoms.
Venous stasis ulcers are open sores on the lower leg caused by vein disease. They are one of the most troublesome complications of varicose vein disease. They typically occur between the knee and ankle, most commonly around the ankle. It is imperative that you treat this condition as soon as possible to decrease your chances of requiring skin grafting or surgery. Come into our vein clinic for help as soon as possible.
Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS), also called post-phlebitic syndrome, occurs in 60 to 80 percent of people who have had a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Symptoms usually start within two years of the instigating DVT, and may become severe and is associated with leg ulcers in approximately 10 percent of cases. Working with a skilled vein doctor is key to relieving the uncomfortable and painful symptoms of this vein condition.
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is characterized by an irresistible urge to move in order to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. RLS is a common disorder and with certain lifestyle changes, medications, and treatments from a vein doctor, you can find rest again.
Within the system of veins, there are deep veins and superficial veins. The deep veins usually travel within the muscle compartments of the body. The deep veins within the legs carry blood directly back into the body and eventually back to the heart. The superficial veins are veins that carry blood from the surface of the body (like the skin) back to the deep veins. Thrombophlebitis means that both a thrombus (blood clot) and a phlebitis (vessel inflammation) are present. With early intervention, these conditions can be treated with simple steps; however, letting it become more serious may require vein removal or stripping. Contact our vein clinic to ensure that you get the treatment you need immediately.
