Cutting Edge Vein Treatment Procedures from the Treatment Center

The opioid epidemic is a grave public health issue. As you know from the news and social media, drug overdose deaths are on the rise, and a tremendous amount of research is going into finding the root cause. One of the issues contributing to overuse of opioids and subsequent patient addiction is unnecessary prescriptions.

For example, before the most recent prescriber guidelines were released, physicians recommended opioids for pain relief after common procedures like vein stripping and carpel tunnel surgery. Today, the treatment center you choose for such procedures is far less likely to recommend opioid medication. In many cases, ibuprofen is enough to manage your discomfort.

State of the Art Treatment Reduces the Need for Opioid Pain Medication

Many people affected by the opioid epidemic started off by taking medications that were prescribed for legitimate medical conditions. However, approximately six percent of patients who were prescribed opioid pain relievers continued taking the medication longer than appropriate. This resulted in substance use disorders, along with related mental health conditions.

Those with family member support and financial resources participated in addiction treatment programs, sometimes through an in-patient program and other times through an outpatient center depending on the level of care required. Others were unable to obtain needed treatment, putting them at risk for overdose.

These statistics can be alarming, particularly for people with varicose veins and spider veins. Venous disorders are quite common, affecting more than 50 percent of Americans. However, concerns about painful, invasive vein removal surgery and subsequent need for opioid pain medication prevent some from seeking the treatment they need to eliminate bulging veins.

 

The good news is that in most cases, there is no need for invasive vein stripping surgery to treat varicose and spider veins. The treatment center you choose to diagnose and treat your vein disorders can offer safe, minimally invasive vein treatment options that are virtually pain-free.

Schedule a consultation with your vein doctor in New York or vein doctor in New Jersey to learn more about the cutting-edge solutions available to you.

 

What Causes Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

There are a lot of myths about what causes varicose veins and spider veins. For example, some people think that crossing your legs causes prominent veins, and others believe exercise is the culprit. Neither of these are true. In fact, most issues with varicose veins and spider veins are caused by an underlying vein disease called Chronis Venous Insufficiency (CVI).

Your blood vessels are responsible for transporting blood from your heart and lungs to all of the organs and tissues in your body. Arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart, and veins bring the deoxygenated blood back. This presents a challenge when it comes to moving blood from the lower half of your body to the heart. Veins have to work against gravity to get the job done.

A series of tiny one-way valves in the veins makes it possible for these vessels to transport blood effectively. They open so that blood can pass through, and then the close to prevent backflow. If the valves are damaged through injury or disease, they can start to leak. When valves aren’t working properly, blood doesn’t move towards the heart efficiently. Instead, it collects in the legs, ankles, and feet. The pooled blood puts pressure on the vessel walls, causing them to swell.

If the swollen veins take on a thick, knotted, ropelike appearance, and they protrude against the skin, they are referred to as varicose veins. If they look like a net or web of red, purple, and blue just under the surface of the skin, they are called spider veins. Either can be a sign of CVI, so it is important to visit a specialized spider vein doctor or varicose vein doctor for complete exam.

What Minimally Invasive Treatment Options Are Available?

Invasive vein stripping surgery was once the standard of care for protruding veins. However, this treatment method is rarely recommended today. That’s good news for anyone who is worried about undergoing a painful procedure that might require opioid medication.

Today’s vein treatments are proven safe and effective, and they are minimally invasive. Your vein doctor completes the treatment through a small incision in the skin. Local anesthesia prevents any discomfort during the procedure, and often the incision is so small that you don’t even need stitches.

The new varicose vein treatments are designed to permanently close unhealthy veins, which allows your body to automatically reroute blood through healthier veins. Once the varicose veins or spider veins are sealed, the tissue is reabsorbed by your body.

The primary difference between state-of-the-art vein treatments is the method used to close the unhealthy veins. Depending on the size and number of unhealthy veins being treated, your vein doctor in NY or vein doctor in NJ may recommend the use of thermal energy, laser energy, a medical injection, or a specialized medical adhesive.

These are the options available from your spider vein clinic or varicose vein clinic:

All of these procedures can be performed on-site at the treatment center, which means there is no hospital stay to worry about. Recovery time is minimal, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. Once your vein specialist has completed a full exam and diagnosed the underlying cause of your varicose veins and spider veins, he or she will work with you to determine the best vein treatment for your situation.

How Do I Choose the Treatment Center That Is Right for Me?

The most important consideration in choosing a treatment center is the experience of the physicians. Look for doctors who are Board Certified with specialized education in diagnosing and treating venous disorders.

The Vein Treatment Clinic is a leading provider of vein-related care. The Board-Certified doctors on staff are recognized as experts in their field, and they are dedicated to ensuring you receive high-quality care.
