Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for varicose vein treatment?

If you have pain, or heaviness in your legs, ankles, or pelvis, you may have varicose vein (venous insufficiency). Typically, varicose vein patients also suffer from pain while standing or walking for long periods of time. Venous insufficiency is a disease and should be treated by professionals who specialize in comprehensive varicose vein management, including diagnosis and treatment.

How do you determine which vein to treat?

In addition, to obtaining a detailed medical history and physical examination, we performed a comprehensive ultrasound evaluation that will help to identify the sources of venous disease (reflux). After a detailed evaluation we formulate an individualized plan and treatment schedule. Every patient’s venous anatomy and condition is unique. Therefore, every patient receives an individualized, specialized plan for treatment.

Are alll veins visible from the outside?

No. Varicose veins may be hidden from your view. Just because you don’t see varicose veins does not mean that you don’t have them. Our diagnostic evaluation may indicate that you are suffering from varicose veins, even when they are not visible. Often, someone suffering from leg pain will visit their doctor, not knowing they have varicose vein disease.

What is the difference between a good vein and a bad vein?

Veins contain one way valves that allow blood to return back to the heart. If those valves are faulty, blood can travel in the opposite direction away from the heart. This condition is known as venous reflux, which can result in painful vein distention and other complications.

What kind of procedures do you perform that would help my varicose vein disease?

At VVLC&S we offer minimally invasive advance alternatives to vein stripping or ligations. These procedures allow us to eliminate the primary source(s) of reflux. Or the diseased vein(s) feeding your varicosities. In most cases, a small tube (or catheter) is inserted into the diseased vein that allows treatment inside of the disease vein.

How long does a procedure last?

ach procedure, completed under localized anesthetic takes approximately one hour. Little additional time is spent at the office, after the procedure you are able to return to your home.

Is the procedure painful?

Not usually. Local anesthetic is administered during the procedure. Afterwards, an over-the counter anti-inflammatory medication is usually all that is necessary for your comfort.

Will I need to limit my activity after the procedure?

Unless the activity is vigorous, you actually should not limit your activity after a procedure. Full recovery usually takes a week, but patients can generally resume normal daily activity within hours of completing the procedure.

What happens to the blood flow that normally goes through the vein that has been treated?

Can all of my veins be treated in one session?

In most cases, it takes more than one visit to treat your varicose veins. However, if only a single vein is causing problems, only one treatment may be needed.

Willl treatment leave any scarring?

Minimal scarring may occur from treatments that we perform. In some cases, the treated site may have mild residual hyperpigmentation or slight discoloration. These changes generally diminish over time.

Could my pelvic pain be related to varicose veins?

Absolutely, just as you may have varicose vein in your legs, you could have them in your pelvis. Several days before menstruation, some women get throbbing pains in their hips and legs-which is a common symptom of pelvic congestion syndrome.

Can you guarantee the results?

Due to genetics and many other factors, you may be predisposed to future problems. We view our services as “Varicose vein treatment” rather than a one-time “cure all”. Since there is no way to definitely prevent additional veins from becoming diseased, varicose veins may be an on-going challenge for you.
