Why go to a vein clinic instead of a hospital for varicose vein treatment?

300px-Physician_in_hospital_sickroom_1682Why go to a vein clinic instead of a hospital for varicose vein treatment?  Hospitals have come a long way since the 1600s when this print was made, but the answer is simple. Today all modern vein treatments are done mainly in vein clinics (sometimes called vein centers).  Not only is it less complicated to go there than to a hospital–you don’t have to be “admitted” and you won’t have to pay hospital overhead charges–but you’ll still have a fully qualified physician performing or overseeing your procedure with all the latest equipment and instruments.  You’ll be covered by insurance the same as if you were in a hospital.  And often it’s easier to get to a vein clinic than to a hospital. › Continue reading

Vein doctors use new less-invasive varicose vein treatments

knottybefore_knee_morrison_veinWhen vein doctors use the term “less-invasive,” people who are living with varicose veins may wonder what that really means.  Some of us may have heard stories in the past about people having very difficult experiences after undergoing what’s known as vein stripping or vein ligation.  That procedure was used for 40 years – during that time it was the only procedure vein doctors had available for treating varicose veins.  Today you have other options for varicose vein treatments.

Should I see a vein specialist for my varicose veins?

75px-ArteriessystemYes, only a qualified vein specialist has the deep and broad knowledge of your body’s blood vessel system that will yield the most accurate diagnosis of the causes of your varicose veins.   You’ll also find that only a qualified vein specialist has the experience, expertise and the necessary equipment to treat your varicose veins with exactly the right procedures for your specific problem.

The best part is that qualified vein specialists can be found throughout the United States in private vein clinics and centers.  Some hospitals may have vein specialists on staff, but because today’s procedures are so much simpler and less invasive, doctors don’t necessarily require the vast backup facilities of a hospital.  It often makes more sense to visit a reputable vein clinic in your area. › Continue reading

How do vein doctors help with problem leg veins?

lumpy_leg_bad_advanced vein and laserYour veins can cause trouble in many areas of your body, but by far the most common reason people visit vein doctors is for problems with the veins in their legs.  The reason is simple—the veins in our legs do a tremendous amount of the work.  They have to fight gravity constantly to keep pumping blood back up to our hearts.  They use an ingenious system of valves to keep blood from flowing back down into our legs—where gravity keeps pulling it.  And sometimes, as your vein doctor will explain, the valves can wear out, slow down, or even stop working entirely. › Continue reading

Qualified vein doctors can be certified in different specialties

When you search for a qualified vein doctor, you want to know that person’s credentials are official and reliable.  Unlike in the early 1900s when all someone who wanted to become a doctor had to do was answer some questions in front of a panel, today’s requirements are much stricter.  So one of the best ways to make certain you’re getting an expert is to find out what certification(s) he or she holds.

Phlebology is the area of scientific expertise that has to do with the study of veins and their diseases.  But official certification in that specialty has only been available for vein doctors for the past couple of years.  Doctors practicing several other specialties will many times have the necessary background for effective vein treatment. › Continue reading

Get your varicose veins fixed at a reputable vein clinic

ultrasound-guided-sclerotherapy_vein-treatmentToday your varicose veins can be fixed in a vein clinic rather than at a hospital. Unlike twenty or even ten years ago, you have many choices today.  You no longer need to undergo vein stripping, which is major surgery—with all the potential pain, side effects, and complications.  Today’s procedures are much simpler, and a good vein clinic can offer you all the latest options.  Current minimally invasive procedures include ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy for spider veins and endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) for varicose veins.  But which vein clinics are reputable and how would the average person know? › Continue reading
