The 3 Stages of VEnous Disease

Spider Veins

Cosmetic Issue

Spider Veins is a cosmetic condition that is treated with Sclerotherapy (spider vein injections). Dr. Almeida is involved with the evaluation and treatment is performed by the nurse. An ultrasound is not required. Spider veins will not harm you if left untreated and this is not a medically necessary procedure. Non-surgical.

Beware of Fraud: You do not need an ultrasound to treat spider veins. Seek a vein professional.

Leaky Veins

Bulging Varicose veins are a medical problem. When veins bulge it means they are under pressure and there is something going on inside of the leg. An ultrasound is necessary and should be done in an accredited lab. Strict protocol must be followed for accurate results during the ultrasoud.

Beware of Fraud: You do not need an ultrasound to treat spider veins. Seek a vein professional.


ADvanced Venous Disease

Swelling, Skin Damage & Ulcers

Caused by deep veins (Deep vein thrombosis – DVT) or blood clots. A fresh blood clot in a deep femoral vein DVT (acute) may break up and cause pulmonary embolism (clot breaking and going into the lungs), which makes this something we must immediately treat and anticoagulats with medicine and we may also go after it with thrombolysis.

After it is there chronically for a long time it becomes a scar blocking the vein causing post thrombotic syndrome, causing skin damange and ulcer.  Treated with Balloon angioplasty of obstruction and stenting.

Veins that are diseased with previous blood clots tend to obstruct and scar down blockage. The treatment is to open them with angioplasty or stents.

Beware of Fraud: You do not need an ultrasound to treat spider veins. Seek a vein professional.

I went in for routine sclerotherapy however I had to have a vein looked at. The doctor was thorough and answered all of my questions. His staff was knowledgeable and did a great job of easing my fears.
