Winston-Salem Vein Clinic: Varicose Vein Consequences - NHVS

A Winston-Salem Vein Clinic on Why Vein Disease is Not Just a Cosmetic Problem

Vein ClinicDr. Joel Deonanan, a leading vein doctor at our Winston-Salem based vein clinic explains why vein disease needs to be taken seriously and is not just a cosmetic issue that can be ignored.

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

NC vascular doctors such as Dr. Deonanan know that often, people think of varicose veins as an unsightly nuisance, which they are. However, unfortunately, they are more than that. You see, vein disease is the result of wear and tear on the valves inside our veins, and these valves ensure that blood moves properly up the body to the heart, from the feet. When these valves don’t work well, blood can pool in the legs and feet, causing swelling, pain, and varicose veins. Left untreated, those varicose veins can lead to some rather serious consequences, in particular deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or blood clots. As blood clots can become deadly embolisms, it’s critically important to visit a reputable vein treatment center in NC, such as Novant Health Vein Specialists, for treatment to get rid of those varicose veins.


After one of our NC vein doctors performs a venous health examination, we can offer you an effective treatment such as sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, or endovenous ablation. These are treatments that will not only get rid of varicose veins and restore the beauty of your legs, but also reduce the risk of DVT and other symptoms, such as leg ulcers and swollen legs and ankles. These treatments are minimally invasive and can be performed right in our clinic, with no need to go to a hospital or to experience lengthy recovery times. In fact, you’ll be up and on your way and back to your usual activities the same day as your treatment.

So, to get rid of varicose veins, look better, and feel better, please give our Winston-Salem vein clinic a call at 336-245-4890 or go online to request an appointment.  You and your legs will be glad you did.
