Vein Conditions We Treat
Varicose Veins are unsightly bulging and twisted veins, usually found in the extremities and most often the legs. Varicose veins are usually an aesthetic condition, however they may cause pain and discomfort. Symptomatic varicose veins can often be a sign of an underlying venous condition.
Spider Veins are web-like discolorations under the skin that usually have no physical symptoms and are most often treated as an aesthetic disorder.
Venous Insufficiency involves reduced function of valves in the veins, most commonly found in the legs, causing symptoms including swelling and discoloration. If left untreated, skin ulcers may form.
Venous Blood Clots / Thrombosis may occur as a result of venous insufficiency which inhibits proper flow of blood through the veins. They can block blood flow in the vein or fragments of the clot may break off causing follow-on problems.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a potentially deadly blood clot in the veins deep within the legs. DVT most often occurs when patients sit for long periods of time, such as during long distance travel. Blood clots may break off and reach the lungs, causing her pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
