Understanding Varicose and Spider Veins
Gravity can work against lower limbs by making it difficult for vessels to pump blood upward. When superficial and collateral veins pool up with blood, they become bulging and twisted (tortuous) over time. Deep veins that are affected can cause more serious conditions when inflammation occurs in vessels and surrounding tissue. Without adequate vein treatment, Fibrosis, ulcers and even Chronic Venous Insufficiency can result. Below are some of the symptoms that we believe are a cause for concern and a good enough reason to schedule an appointment with a varicose veins specialist.
Concerning Varicose Veins Symptoms
Warning signs that severe venous insufficiency is prevalent in the lower body.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR VARICOSE VEIN SPECIALIST
Before Dr. Rami treats your Varicose veins, a detailed history and physical exam of the legs is performed. If necessary, we order a non invasive analysis to assess the degree of venous insufficiency by using a duplex ultrasound. This helps us pinpoint the location and extent of vascular incompetence. If there are signs of a deep vein problem, further testing may be required. When comprehensive treatment that focuses on lifestyle changes or compression therapy isn’t adequate, we look into recommending Radiofrequency Ablation, Sclerotherapy or a Microphlebectomy. While visiting our endovascular center in Peoria, you can expect a warm and friendly environment and quality care throughout your visit.
