An NC Vein Doctor Publishes a New Article on How Varicose Veins Can Change People’s Behavior

March 25, 2017. Winston-Salem, NC. Novant Health Vein Specialists, a leading NC vein treatment center, is announcing the publication of a new article on how varicose veins might make people behave in unexpected ways. According to the Winston-Salem based center, varicose veins can prevent people from getting out of the house and doing things they used to love to do, such as walking, dancing, and wearing skirts. This means vein disease can cause a poorer quality of life – and it doesn’t have to be this way.

NC vein doctor Dr. Ray Workman of Novant Health Vein Specialists explains, “Winston-Salem vascular doctors offer patients a professional venous health evaluation. This screening includes a medical history interview and an examination of the legs, both of which will help us determine the best course of treatment for each patient’s particular condition. The good news is that varicose veins can be treated quickly, safely, and effectively, getting patients back to doing the activities they love and feeling good about their legs and their overall health.”

Dr. Workman also notes that current minimally invasive treatment options include sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and endovenous ablation treatments, all of which can be performed right in their Winston-Salem clinic, with no need to visit a hospital or have general anesthetics.

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.
