Benefits Of Getting Treated At A Vein Center
A vein center is a facility designed for the sole purpose of diagnosing vascular conditions and providing effective treatment. If you are suffering from the symptoms of abnormal veins, such as varicose veins or spider veins, you can find the help and resources you need at a vein center. Keep in mind that many vein centers are currently being run by radiologists, dermatologists, or cardiologists, all of whom have not been trained in vascular surgery. It is important to see a board-certified vascular surgeon to ensure best treatment options and results. Some of the primary benefits of vein center treatment include:
1. Expert diagnosis of your condition.
Abnormal veins can present in a number of ways. If you have spider veins, for example, you may notice small twisted veins on your hands, face, ankles, feet and chest. These veins may be blue, purple or red. If you have varicose veins, on the other hand, you may notice swollen, gnarled veins in your legs that cause pain and discomfort.
When you visit a vein clinic and are under the care of a board-certified vascular surgeon, you will receive an expert diagnosis of your abnormal veins, thus allowing you to understand your condition and find the right treatment. This only applies if you get to see the specialist, and the specialist is a vascular surgeon. Don’t settle for an evaluation by a physician assistant, and don’t settle for a non-vascular surgeon like a radiologist, cardiologist, or dermatologist, with no formal training in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease.
2. Medical attention from vein specialists.
The vascular surgeons who perform your examinations and administer treatment at a vein clinic have specialized training and many years of experience in diagnosing and treating abnormal veins. They can diagnose your condition effectively and help you choose the course of action that is best for you.
3. Multiple treatment options.
Vein centers operating under the direction and care of a board-certified vascular surgeon may offer a number of different treatment options, including endovenous laser ablation, sclerotherapy, VeinGogh, VNUS closure, ClariVein®, Varithena® and micro-phlebectomy. With so many options available, you will be able to find the treatment option that is best for your condition. In some cases, you can even use two or more treatments in conjunction with one another for superior results.
4. Patient-directed treatment plans.
When you visit a vein center, your vascular surgeon will explain all of your treatment options and make a recommendation; however, it will be up to you to decide which treatments you will pursue, based on the information your doctor has provided.
