Varicose Vein Treatment Breakthrough Now Available in Houston, TX

Varicose veins are seen in association with leg discomfort, fatigue, swelling, throbbing and possibly restless legs. In severe cases, spontaneous hemorrhage or ulceration of the skin can occur.

Michael Bardwil, M.D., at Texas Vein and Cosmetic Specialists says, “Don’t ignore these potential risks to quality of life. We now have an established record utilizing the minimally invasive procedures that have replaced vein stripping. Virtually all of your varicose veins can be eliminated in the comfort of our office setting. These unsightly and painful problems can be treated without ever having to set foot in a hospital.”

Veins are the blood vessels that return the blood from your legs to your heart. Varicose veins occur when one-way valves present in normal veins stop functioning properly.

Blood in your veins has to flow uphill when you are sitting or standing. One-way doors or valves allow this to occur. If the door behaves more like a barroom door then blood in the veins can flow either up or down. Blood starts to pool in the veins because the force of gravity can’t be resisted with poorly functioning valves. The veins become distended, due to increase in “back pressure.” The increased venous pressure causes the pain and other symptoms often experienced by individuals with varicosities.

Eliminating the abnormal veins removes the burden of extra flow to the normal veins and improves venous circulation. Varicose vein treatment does not cause new veins to appear. This is accomplished by utilizing Endovenous Laser Therapy.

The laser procedure uses only local anesthesia and usually takes less than an hour to complete. Patients return to normal activities immediately. There is no need to go to the hospital.

Most patients not only improve their appearance, but they also experience relief of aching, tired legs.

“Before vein treatment, many patients get to the point where they don’t want to leave the house without long pants,” says Dr. Bardwil. “When they go swimming or when it’s warm outside, they stay covered up because they’re embarrassed and unhappy with the appearance of their legs. After treatment of their varicose veins, their self-confidence returns. Their only regret is that they waited so long.”

Dr. Bardwil is a board-certified vascular surgeon, has over 25 years of experience and has focused his entire practice on venous disorders. “You won’t find any gimmicks at Texas Vein and Cosmetic Specialists. All of our treatment options offer patients fast, efficient resolution to their vein problems,” says Dr. Bardwil.

A well-informed patient makes a good patient, which is why Dr. Bardwil believes it is very important for patients to be educated about all forms of treatment. An initial evaluation will allow you to answer any questions you may have, so that you will make the right decision on which treatment will benefit you.

Many patients are also pleasantly surprised to learn that their varicose vein treatments can often be covered by insurance.
