Symptoms of Venous Disease

Symptoms of venous disease may include:

  • Leg pain or swelling
  • Burning or itching skin
  • Heavy, tired or restless legs
  • Skin discolorations
  • Open ulcers on legs
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Leg cramps
  • Blood clots
  • Neuropathy (damage to the nerves that causes weakness, numbness, and pain)

The most common types of venous diseases we treat are spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins are clusters of red or purple thread-like veins just under the skin. Varicose veins are bulging, rope-like veins that usually get larger over time.

Treatment for Venous Disease

Venous disease can be treated with a minimally invasive procedure called endovenous thermal ablation. During this procedure, a catheter is inserted into the diseased vein using a tiny incision. Heat is applied to the vein wall, causing it to close. The body then naturally re-routes the blood through other healthy veins.

Because the procedure is done under local anesthetic, you likely will be up and walking immediately after the procedure and return to normal activities the same day. Most people notice immediate relief of symptoms. Most major insurance companies, including Medicare, cover this procedure.

Sclerotherapy is used to treat spider veins. Because spider veins are usually treated for cosmetic, not medical reasons, insurance doesn't cover sclerotherapy.
