Our office provides patients treatments for vein conditions including varicose veins, spider veins, and chronic venous insufficiency.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic Venous Insufficiency occurs when the veins do not return blood to the heart as they should. Normally the valves within the veins work to pump blood against gravity up to your heart. When this happens, blood can flow backwards and cause pooling of blood in the legs. This may lead to swelling, pain, leg heaviness, cramping, varicose veins, skin changes or development of ulcers.
Varicose and Spider Veins
Varicose Veins are veins that appear raised or enlarged. This condition most commonly appears on the legs or feet and occurs when the veins become dilated, enlarged, or overfilled with blood.
Spider veins are smaller than varicose veins, and are visible under the skin. They are typically red or blue in color and resemble a spider web or tree branch. Spider veins affect the capillaries, which are the body’s smallest blood vessels.
May Thurner Syndrome
May Thurner syndrome is a condition in which the iliac veins within your pelvic are compressed. This can contribute to lower extremity swelling.
Venous Statis is a condition in which there is a slow flow of blood in the veins. It can occur as a result of chronic Venous insufficiency and presents with inflammation of the skin in the lower legs.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms inside of a deep vein in the body. These deep vein blood clots are typically seen in the legs but it can occur in other parts of the body. Symptoms may include swelling in the ankle, foot or leg, cramping pain in the calf, a section of skin that feels warmer compared to surrounding areas, or a reddish, bluish or pale skin color in the affected area.
