An NC Vein Doctor Publishes a New Article on the Top 3 Patient Questions

June 18, 2015. Winston-Salem, NC. Novant Health Vein Specialists, a leading NC vein treatment center, is announcing the publication of a new article on the top 3 questions asked by patients. According to the Winston-Salem based center, patients believe that varicose veins are merely a cosmetic problem, that treatment will take a lot of time, and that their veins will come back after treatment.

NC vein doctor Dr. Ray Workman of Novant Health Vein Specialists explains that “varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic problem because they are a symptom of an underlying medical condition known as chronic venous insufficiency Left untreated, varicose veins can lead to some serious consequences, such as leg ulcers, pain and swelling, and most importantly, potentially deadly blood clots.” He goes on to note that NC vascular doctors now have an arsenal of fast, effective, and minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. These treatments include sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and endovenous treatments, all of which can be performed on an outpatient basis in about an hour. Finally, Dr. Workman explains that recurrent veins are usually due to missing diseased veins during the initial examination, and poor treatment technique. At Novant Health Vein Specialists, only the best and most modern evaluation and treatment techniques are used, to ensure that patients’ varicose veins are eliminated for good.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins result from malfunction of their one-way valves which normally promote the return of blood from the extremities back to the heart. Blood backs up in the veins increasing the pressure against the vein walls resulting in bulging veins. More than just a cosmetic nuisance, however, varicose veins can lead to leg pain, swelling and discoloration.

Many people are unaware of the affordable, effective treatments available to eliminate varicose veins. Modern advances in technology have expanded treatment options to include techniques such as sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy. All of these procedures are well tolerated. They are performed by a highly skilled vein doctor on an outpatient basis with most patients able to return to work the next day.
