It is possible for men and women to have varicose veins. In fact, it is a problem that about 30 percent of the population is dealing with. The ones who are most likely to deal with this issue are women who have had children and who have a history of varicose veins in their family. Varicose veins can be a symptom of a bigger, underlying issue. It is best to make an appointment with a doctor to get the best treatment. Virginia Vein Care provides those solutions as an IAC certified vein center.
Working with a vascular specialist is important to address the symptoms that a person experiences when they have varicose veins. These symptoms can include fatigue, itchy skin, pain, heaviness, and swelling.
People often turn to compression stockings when they are dealing with the symptoms of varicose veins. Compression stockings should only be used under the care of a physician who specializes in this treatment.
The first time you visit Virginia Vein Care, we will obtain a complete venous history and discuss any other medical conditions you may have. We will perform a thorough venous exam, including a complete but painless duplex ultrasound exam. We will then give you our best recommendations for alleviating your symptoms without the need for invasive vein surgery.
Virginia Vein Care offers a Vein Consultation to all prospective patients. During the Vein Consultation, you will meet with one of our physicians who will answer any questions you have and help you understand venous disease and the different ways in which it can be treated.
