Varicose veins are more than just an aesthetic problem. There are serious health problems associated with bulging veins. They are most commonly found in the legs because the blood is attempting to travel back to the heart against the flow of gravity. David Nabi, MD, FACS of Orange County, CA has helped many patients find relief from their varicose veins.
If you feel concerned over the condition of your veins, a vascular surgeon like myself can discuss solutions and treatment options. Leg pain and swelling are the first signs that larger problems lurk around the corner. Skin conditions and ulcers can follow swiftly behind that if left untreated.
The veins in your legs are important to the circulatory system. An ultrasound can establish whether or not they have become varicose. While chances are the condition is benign, it is always better to be safe than sorry. For example, severe bleeding of a superficial, minimally traumatic wound can occur, especially among elderly patients. In extreme cases, blood clots and necrosis have manifested themselves.
Varicose veins are largely attributed to heredity. Pregnancy, obesity, and aging are also contributing factors. Treatments range from the simple to the complex, and every patient responds differently. Elevating your legs may provide temporary relief. Compression garments can change the pressure in your leg to improve blood flow. Anti-inflammatory may reduce their appearance.
Surgical options may be required. A vascular surgeon can consult you on which treatment is best for you. I am experienced in all forms of vascular surgery, with a specialty in advanced minimally invasive procedures. The fruits of modern science and technology have yielded wonderful bounties for doctors and patients alike. It is now safer and easier than ever to operate!
