Does your Patient have Venous Disease?

Does your patient have Venous Disease? Venous reflux in the lower extremity is when blood from the foot which should travel towards the heart reverses downwards due to gravity.   Approximately 40% of all women will suffer from abnormal leg veins by the time they are in the 50s, resulting in leg aching, swelling, heaviness, cramping, throbbing, itching, and restless legs syndrome. Prolonged reflux results in skin thickening, discoloration, ropy varicose veins, and even venous ulcers. The simplest way to evaluate the venous system of the legs is with an ultrasound study, which is painless and can be easily performed at our Vein Center. The modern treatment of chronic venous insufficiency is office-based, under local anesthesia, and covered by many insurance carriers. To learn more or refer a patient, please call our office today at  949-9289
