Perhaps you’re tired of hiding your varicose veins under long pants, or perhaps you’re growing weary of the swollen legs and ankles and that annoying ache. Perhaps you’ve read about vein disease and understand that leaving varicose veins untreated will only make it worse. Whatever your reason, Winston-Salem vein specialists are here to help.
Why is it important for Winston-Salem residents to get varicose veins treated promptly?
One of the most important reasons to seek vein disease treatment in Winston-Salem is that vein disease is a progressive condition. This means it won’t go away on its own, and in fact it is likely to get worse. Vein disease is the result of failing valves inside our veins, which can lead to blood pooling in the legs. This pooling causes all the symptoms of vein disease, including swelling, aching, and that heavy feeling. However, left untreated, the consequences may include leg ulceration (a painful and difficult condition to treat) and blood clots, or deep vein thrombosis – which could be deadly! Those blood clots can break free of their original location in the leg and travel to the heart, lungs or brain as a potentially fatal embolism.
The other reason to seek prompt vein treatment is that today, Novant Health Vein Specialists has several highly effective, minimally invasive procedures to eliminate varicose veins and restore your legs to their former health and beauty. There is no longer any need to go to a hospital or experience lengthy recovery times. In fact, with sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and endovenous laser treatment, you can have your procedure done right in our Winston-Salem vein clinic in about an hour!
So what’s the next step?
The most important next step is to schedule and appointment with us for a professional venous health evaluation. This examination will include a medical history, a visual examination of your veins, and a Doppler ultrasound examination to see the veins deep beneath the skin, painlessly. Ultrasound can reveal blood clots and other critical vein problems so that they can be treated quickly and easily. After the initial examination, Dr. Ray Workman will provide you with the most appropriate treatment options for your particular situation. Each treatment has its own advantages and disadvantages, and you have your personal preferences and scheduling needs.
Together we will come up with a treatment plan that achieves both your aesthetic and your health goals, and eliminates the risk of vein disease consequences down the road. But Winston-Salem vein care doesn’t stop there. We’ll see you through the treatment, and then follow up with you afterwards with prevention strategies and conservative treatments to ensure that new varicose veins don’t develop in the future. You can rest assured we’ll do everything possible to restore and maintain your legs and your circulatory system in their best possible condition.
So give us a call at 336-245-4890 or go online and take that next step. We look forward to meeting you.
