- Venous Disease – this disease occurs when the leg veins do not allow blood to flow back up to the heart and blood flows backwards, causing it to pool in the legs.
- Spider and Reticular Veins – superficial leg veins that are small and appear just below the skin’s surface. They are red, blue or purple and commonly on thighs, calves and ankles.
- Varicose Veins – varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins just beneath the skin caused by week or damaged vein walls and valves.
- Venous Stasis Ulcers – Venous stasis ulcers are the result of malfunctioning venous valves causing pressure in the veins to increase.
- Venous Disease – treatment typically includes prescription compression stockings that apply pressure at the ankle and lower leg, helping to improve blood flow and reducing swelling. Surgery is sometimes required if the condition of the veins doesn’t improve.
- Sclerotherapy for Spider and Reticular Veins – injection therapy of a chemical irritant to make the vein swell, and forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins.
- Endouvenous Laser Ablation and Phlebectomy – minimally invasive procedures to remove large surface veins through tiny incisions that do not require stitches.
- Compression Therapy – therapy to decrease blood vessel diameter and pressure which increases effectiveness in preventing venous reflux. Limb elevation and regular wound treatment to minimize infection is critical to the healing process.
