Despite the common belief that people with vein problems always have varicosities, majority of patients do not have visible signs of the disease at all. Instead, they suffer from tiredness, heaviness, swelling, aching pains, burning, itching, cramps, restless leg syndrome, and even non-healing ulcers. While some people develop varicose veins, the others have so-called “spider” veins, yet other ones have swollen legs as a single sign of vein disease. Eventually and regardless of the type of venous disorder, the condition can lead to serious complications, including trophic ulcers, bleeding, infection and even blood clot formation.
All of the above-described problems, as well as many others, can be caused by abnormal circulation in the veins of the lower extremities, a condition called “venous insufficiency”. In each vein center, you will receive a comprehensive consultation, appropriate diagnostic procedures and individually selected treatment provided by caring members of our staff specializing in management and treatment of vein diseases.
Since venous insufficiency is a serious medical condition, it is important to know that the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans. USA Vein Clinics has a dedicated insurance department that will assist you with the process.
