Overview of practice:
For many years the treatment of varicose veins was mostly ignored by surgeons. They commonly believed the field to be uninteresting and the treatment to be barbaric. We have seen how patients suffer from the debilitating effects of venous disease, just as much as our patients with arterial problems suffer. The treatment of varicose veins was commented upon in ancient times by Hippocrates and, until recently, had not advanced very much. We are now able to employ 21st Century techniques to its treatment.
If someone were to consider treatment for their varicose veins, what key information should they know about their doctor?
They should verify that their doctor is a board certified surgeon. A surgeon is able to competently utilize all of the treatment modalities available. We are able to not only use the latest non-invasive techniques, but in severe situations we use hospital-based surgical procedures.
What should patients themselves know about the treatments?
The whole spectrum of varicose vein disease and treatment options can be quite confusing. They may range from simple injections for spider veins to radio frequency closure of saphenous vein disease. Unfortunately, most of those who suffer from this problem are unaware of modern treatments. Those suffering may have painful ulcers or just ugly embarrassing veins. We hold free informational seminars and vein screenings several times a year for just this reason. Our office will gladly provide the dates of our next free informational seminar on vein screening.
How has your specialty changed over the past decade?
In years past, all patients with varicose veins were treated with the same centuries old method of stripping and ligation. It used to be difficult to determine the cause of an individual’s varicose vein disease. Today, prior to deciding on a treatment, all patients undergo a sophisticated ultrasound examination by our registered vascular technician. We have new and improved minimally invasive methods, as well as newer chemicals for sclerotherapy of spider veins. Downtime for the patient is now almost non-existent.
