Free Your Legs From Varicose Veins
If you’re experiencing leg pain, you might be surprised to know that an experienced cardiologist can help give you the leg pain relief you’ve been looking for. Varicose veins form when your veins can’t pump blood efficiently. Your veins have little valves that work against gravity to push blood back to the heart.
When these valves become weak, it can cause the blood to leak and pool which can cause them to become enlarged and ropey-looking, often swollen and protruding from the skin. They may look flesh-colored, red, purple, or blue. Usually, varicose veins are found on the backs of the legs or inner thighs, but they can form anywhere on the lower half of the body. Some patients may not experience pain but dislike how varicose veins make their legs look.
In either case, our vein specialist can help Michigan patients in Rochester, Auburn Hills, Troy, Pontiac, and the surrounding areas get the relief they deserve with effective varicose vein treatment.
Symptoms of Varicose Veins
While not every patient experiences pain or discomfort from varicose veins, if not treated, they can cause a variety of symptoms including:
- Leg, ankle, and foot swelling
- Heavy sensation in the leg
- Pain or discomfort when standing
- Restless legs
- Blood Clots
- Skin discoloration or rashes
- Circulation issues
- Burning, throbbing, or itching sensation
- Leg pain or cramping
Fortunately, we have effective, easy solutions to treat your varicose veins and relieve your pain.
Our expert cardiologist Dr. Zmily of our sister company Suburban Vein Center provides a variety of pain-free treatment options designed to effectively eliminate varicose veins in as little as an hour.
Treatment methods for varicose veins can include a variety of measures including lifestyle changes and compression stockings. We use ultrasound to see the entire venous structure to ensure the utmost accuracy in treating your varicose veins.
During your procedure, your insurance and the diagnostic ultrasound will determine which in office procedures you are a candidate for: thermal ablation, venaseal, or varithena injections. Your blood will redirect to other, healthier veins and you can enjoy the pain relief you deserve. Varicose vein treatment can usually be done in as little as an hour with little-to-no downtime which means you don’t have to worry about long recovery times.
Varicose vein treatment is typically covered by insurance. In some cases, if treatment is only done for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance of the legs, insurance may not cover the expense.
