You have been referred to the Vein Center because your physician has determined that you have venous disease. Venous disease includes several conditions involving the vessels that carry blood from the body back to the heart. The most recognized of these is venous insufficiency, or venous reflux disease – otherwise known as varicose veins.
At the Vein Clinic, a provider will determine the best treatment options for you and discuss your treatment plan with you. Recommended treatment will depend on your medical history, a physical exam and your current limitations. Some people may be able to control their symptoms by improving lifestyle habits and taking the following steps:
- Utilize compression garments
- Exercise regularly to promote healthy blood flow
- Weight Loss
If further treatment is needed, the care team will assess you for health conditions that may be contributing to venous disease and discuss which therapies will be most appropriate for you.
