Common Vein Diseases and Treatment

The veins, like any other part of the body, can become diseased and cease to function properly. Common vein conditions include spider veins, varicose veins, blot clots, thrombosis and aneurysms.

These venous conditions may come about for one or more reasons. Standing for prolonged periods of time, regularly lifting heavy objects, being overweight, pregnancy and aging are some of the main reasons people experience the vein conditions outlined above. Genetics also play a role; those who have family members who have had a vein disease may be prone to the same problem.

Thankfully, there are a wide range of vein treatment options from which to choose. Some are non-invasive in nature; these include the use of pharmacological applications, wearing supportive garments, elevating the legs while sitting and getting regular exercise. However, in cases where non-invasive procedures are not working, more intense procedures may be in order. These include endovenous ablation (destroying diseased veins with a laser), sclerotherapy (shrinking blood vessels via surgery) removing the affected veins altogether or tying them off.

The good news is that you do not have to put up with vein problems. With the help of an experienced vein doctor, all the above mentioned diseases are curable, enabling you to lead a healthy, active life without pain or discomfort.  Contact Metroview Vascular and Surgical today to schedule an appointment.
