Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins are one of the most common venous conditions known to men and women all over the world. Although commonly seen in older patients, varicose veins and lower extremity venous disease can appear in men and women beginning in their late teens and early twenties. According to a study done by the Society of Interventional Radiology, over 25% of adults have varicose veins.
Dr. Krysinski and his staff want to educate our patients on the treatments available to them for their chronic superficial venous insufficiency, including varicose veins. Venous insufficiency affects more than just the appearance of our legs. It can affect one’s quality of life causing pain, throbbing, ulcers and bleeding. It is important to address insufficient lower extremity veins that cause varicose veins in many of our patients.
Varicose veins often are the result of superficial venous insufficiency and, in some severe cases, deep vein incompetence. At the Vein Institute of Pittsburgh℠, we work with our patients to minimize future complications of insufficient venous blood flow from the lower region of the body. These treatments allow for improvement of lower extremity symptoms as well as some aesthetic improvement in most.
Varicose Vein Treatments Once Upon a Time
Treatment for varicose veins has not always been as simple, quick and minimally painful as it has become in recent years. Older, more traditional treatments (often referred to as vein stripping) required hospital stays, lengthy recovery and general anesthesia. Treatments of the past were invasive, painful and less successful long-term when compared to more modern endovenous techniques that the Vein Institute of Pittsburgh℠ performs everyday.
New and Improved Lower Extremity Venous Disease and Varicose Vein Treatment
Today there are a wide variety of vein closure procedures that can be done directly in the office. These outpatient procedures often are performed in less than one hour and allow patients to be up and walking as soon as the procedure is done. Depending on the severity of one’s venous disease, patients often require more than one surgical venous procedure.
We offer a series of venous disease treatments to target the insufficient “problem veins” with a combination of treatments. The Vein Institute of Pittsburgh℠ will help you improve both the look and feel of your legs.
