An NC Vascular Doctor on How Being Informed about Vein Disease Can Keep You Out of the Hospital

vascular doctorDr. Ray Workman, one of the best vascular doctors in NC, discusses what you need to know about vein disease in order to avoid having to go to the hospital

What do the residents of Winston-Salem need to know about vein disease and hospital visits?

Vein disease is the result of a breakdown in the tiny valves inside our veins. These valves ensure that our blood gets properly routed up to the heart from our feet, against gravity. When these valves begin to fail, the blood can pool in the legs and feet, and can lead to varicose veins and other symptoms such swollen legs and ankles, leg ulcers, and even DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

One of our vascular doctors, Dr. Workman explains that left untreated, varicose veins and their symptoms will not get better on their own, and can even land you in the hospital. DVT, for example, has the potential to be deadly because if the blood clot travels through the bloodstream to your heart, lungs or brain, it can become an embolism.

That’s why being informed about vein disease is so important – so you can get appropriate treatment and avoid having to go to the hospital.
