Start with evaluatio. Treatment of varicose veins begins with a consultation with a vein specialist/phlebologist. A history, physical and duplex ultrasound are critical to understanding your particular pattern of vein problems. A treatment plan is devised based on this information, and could include endovenous ablation, phlebotomy &/or sclerotherapy. Treatment is often quite effective, although new veins may develop.
Close leaking valves. Varicose veins are a result of malfunctioning valves usually in the saphenous system. The first step in treatment would be to obtain a venous reflux ultrasound to make the diagnosis and help plan treatment which could be laser or radiofreqency closure of the valves usually with microphlebectomies and possible sclerotherapy or ultrasound directed sclerotherapy. You should see a vein specialist.
Ultrasound first. There are a number of good treatment options for getting rid of varicose veins. Major surgery isn't required any more. The first thing to do is to see a vein specialist/phlebologist. You need to have a standing venous ultrasound exam. The results will then determine what treatment options are available to you, as outlined by dr. Zimmett.
Choices. Injecttions are an option, surgery and laser treatments are other options. Your choices will depend on the reasons you have these veins. See a vascular surgeon or plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
Depends. There are many reasons why one gets varicose vein. Genetics, body type, previous injury, life style / activity level, nature of work, and pregnancy can all play a role. The nature of problem also tends to differ individually. Don't be afraid to discuss your specific problems with your doctor. Many minimally invasive office procedures are available with minimal down time.
Treatment. The treatment of varicose veins depends on te cause of the venous insufficiency. You need to have an ultrasound of the superficial and deep venous systems to see if there is any reflux. If there is reflux in the saphenous vein then you can have endovenous ablation of the vein. Sometimes this is all you need. Sometimes you need phlebectomy as well. See a vein specialist for further evaluation.
See vein specialist. There are many possibilities depending on your situation. A vein specialist (phlebologist) is your best source of information.
Varicose veins. Most common treatment for varicose veins is endovenous ablation with laser (EVLT) or radiofrequency heat (Venfit). Other common treatments include phlebectomy & ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Stripping of veins has traditionally been used in the past but is not common today. Seek opinion from board-certified vascular surgeon as they are vein experts that can offer all options to you.
Varicose veins. Depends on the nature of the veins Evaluation to determine the varicose veins cause, if spider veins then sclerotherapy would be recommended If larger then a sonogram would identify it there is a reflux issue and if so then thermal ablation would be recommended.

A process that. .. Begins with ultrasound. With varicose veins, it important to have an ultrasound examination of your veins to see if there is any underlying vein trouble that is causing your visible veins. This underlying problem is usually treated with endoveneous laser or rf. The rest can be treated with phlebectomy, sclerotherapy, or both. Traditional vein stripping surgery is rarely done in the us any more.
See a phlebologist. I would see your doctor or a vein specialist. Typically, they will order an ultrasound of your leg veins to determine the cause of your varicose veins and then recommend treatment. Treatment options are compression stockings (will help with pain and swelling but not make them go away), closure of veins with laser or radiofrequency, surgical removal, or sclerotherapy.
Varicose veins. This depends on what type of varicosities are present. Large of varicose veins are most likely to be treated with a thermal ablation procedure without the need for surgery. Surface type varices a more often treated with sclerotherapy or surface laser treatments. In the interim I would certainly recommend compression stockings. Evaluation with a venous Doppler sonogram will identify the problem.
For good info. Go to sirweb. Org. Click on patient tab at top of page. Then click on varicose veins at the left side of the page. There is a doctor finder also at this site, which can help you find an interventional radiologist in your area. This doctor can provide the diagnostic and the therapeutic care for your varicose veins.
See Vascular Surgeon. Varicose vein disease in a complex condition that needs thorough evaluation by a vascular surgeon prior to considering treatment. The therapy will depend on your particular anatomy, which is evaluated with ultrasound first. Based on your exam, the therapy could range from needing sclerotherapy to phlebectomy surgery to thermal catheter ablation. Vascular surgeons can provide all the treatments.
No. Varicose veins are due to leaking valves (reflux) usually of the saphenous veins. Exercise increases the calf muscle contractions to increase the venous return to the heart and decreases the venous back pressure but it does not address the underlying problem of leaking valves. You should see a vein specialist and have a full venous evaluation with a reflux venous ultrasound.
No. Varicose veins are the result of defective "plumbing" within your circulation. The valves within the veins have failed prematurely, and once the valves are failed, they are always failed. Exercise will not help the valves recover. In order to rid yourself of varicose veins, you will need some form or intervention, either laser, radiofrequency, sclerotherapy, surgery, or a combination of these.
Its the valves. Varicose veins are the result of defective valves. The valves within the veins have failed prematurely, and once the valves are failed, they are always failed. Exercise will not help the valves recover. In order to rid yourself of varicose veins, you will need some form or intervention, either laser, radiofrequency, sclerotherapy, surgery, or a combination of these. See a vein specialist.
Exercise. Once varicose veins have developed they will not resolve on their own, and is important to determine the source of the varicose veins to determine what treatment would work well. Sometimes vigorous physical activity can stimulate veins become more prominent due to increased muscle girth. These veins are not abnormal, but become more noticeable by the increasing muscle.
Conservative va surg. Varicose vein treatment can range from conservative management using lower extremity compressive stockings. Surgical management depends on the presence of venous insufficiency. In the case of insufficiency, the saphenous vein has to be closed first followed by sclerotherapy. Where there is no insufficiency, sclerotherapy can be the only approach.
Multiple Options. Varicose veins are visable veins that are caused by underlying venous insufficiency, you will need to have the veisn treated by evla, vnus, ambulatory phlebectomy and/or sclerotherapy. You will want to see a vein specialist and have a duplex ultrasound to come up with the best plan for you.
Often a combination. I would see a vein specialist/phlebologist. A venous ultrasound of your leg veins should be done to find the cause of your varicose veins and make a treatment recommendation. A treatment option that helps symptoms but doesn't make the veins go away is compression stockings. Other more definitive options include laser or radiofrequency ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and/or sclerotherapy.
Varicose Veins. There are many ways to treat varicose veins ; there are definitely right ways ; wrong ways, so always see a vein specialist or vascular surgeon for an opinion prior to proceeding. Your anatomy (determined by an ultrasound) ; the size of the veins are the 2 critical factors. Options can include sclerotherapy injections, evlt, rf ablation (venefit), ambulatory phlebectomy, vein ligation, ; stripping.
Varicose veins. Be evaluated to determine cause The best test is a venous Doppler sonogram Once completed a treatment plan can be made If there is valve reflux a thermal ablation is very common.
Varicose veins. Different ways. Compression stockings, leg elevation, strength exercises, prevent excess weight. Laser, surgeries, vein stripping all these three depends on severity of varicose vein and your budget (most of the time this is consider cosmetic).
Multi-step process. First, an ultrasound is performed to assess for venous insufficiency which leads to varicose veins. Once such veins are identified, if they are amenable to treatment with endovenous ablation (laser, radiofrequency, ? Pharmacomechanical) such a procedure is performed. Finally, the varicosities are dealt with via phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. Actually, most insurance carriers and medicare cover this.
See vein specialist. Look for national specialist: www. Phlebology. Org doctors who specialize in vein disease. There are minimally invasive, in office procedures for varicose veins where you can return to work in 1-3 days depending on the severity. Vnus closure, endovenous laser, phlebectomy, ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy or a combination: www. Morrisonvein. Com.
Often a combination. Treatment often starts with compression. Depending on the size and location of your varicose veins, you could have an endovenous thermal ablation procedure or an operation. You might also have sclerotherapy and/or phlebectomy might be recommended to you. See a vein specialist who can do an ultrasound evaluation of your veins and then decide what is the best way for your varicose veins to be treated.
Varicose veins. Depends on the source If just surfac then sclerotherapy vein injection If valve reflux then thermal ablation is a great option.
