Most of the time, you don’t give your veins a second thought. You might glance at the fine webbing of pale, blue lines that appear on your skin without really paying attention to them. They’re essential as they carry the blood in your body where it has to go. As long as everything is functioning the way that it should, you don’t have a reason to be concerned.

However, when varicose veins appear, it’s another story. These twisted, bulging veins are a nuisance for many. In some cases, they may be so severe that they look like clumps of knotted ropes under the surface of their skin.

They can be painful as well, forcing you to get off of your feet. They’re unsightly, which means you are likely to keep your legs hidden.

If you are tired of looking at varicose veins or the discomfort that comes with them, you can do something about them. Your best bet is to choose a vascular surgeon to find out about possible solutions.

Why Choose a Vascular Surgeon for Your Vein Treatment?

Choosing a vascular surgeon is important because it specializes in the study of the veins and necessary treatments to deal with a variety of conditions. Regardless of what type of issue you may have with your health, you want to turn to a specialist to find answers.

If you’re dealing with problems with your bones, you’ll see an orthopedic specialist. If it’s your veins, you need a vascular expert. A vascular surgeon will be able to assess your condition and help you to find the best path to an effective treatment.

You can also rest assured that the vascular surgeon is experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to the intricate system of veins that run throughout your body.

You want to have confidence in anyone who is going to provide you with medical treatment. Be sure to choose an expert in the field.

What are Your Choices for Varicose Vein Treatment?

When it comes to getting rid of varicose veins, you have several alternatives. Sclerotherapy is a popular approach that involves the injection of a solution into the affected vein, causing it to collapse.

Laser ablation uses heat from a laser to cause the vein walls to collapse. Phlebectomy involves the surgical removal of varicose veins that are at the surface of your skin.

The vascular surgeon may also make recommendations for changes in lifestyle that can help you to eliminate your varicose veins.
