An experienced vein doctor answers top queries that people have before visiting a varicose vein treatment clinic.

If you are reading this, you probably already have varicose veins, and they are bothering you badly enough that you are thinking about getting them treated. Of course, you would have a bunch of doubts about the process. This article answers the top questions that most people have before they visit a varicose vein treatment clinic.

How much will visiting a varicose vein treatment clinic cost me?

Yes, at the end of the day, whether or not you get treated for your varicose veins depends partly, if not entirely, on how much it is going to take out of your pocket. Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer to this question! The cost of both the initial consultation with the vein specialist, and any varicose vein treatments that you might opt for depends on the kind of insurance plan that you carry.

The simplest way to find out the cost of an initial consultation for you, individually, is to give the vein treatment center a call! Many leading vein clinics, such as the Vein Treatment Clinic, will offer complimentary verification of the insurance coverage for your consultation with a vein doctor if you submit your information.

Once you have an initial consultation with the vein doctor, you will receive a customized treatment plan, which will take into account your insurance plan! Most treatments for varicose veins cost thousands of dollars. While some insurance plans cover only radiofrequency ablation, other plans cover all kinds of varicose vein treatment, including advanced procedures like VenaSeal.

You may not be eligible for insurance if you do not actually have varicose veins, but have only spider veins (which are tinier streaks rather than bulging knots of blood vessels), and if you do not have symptoms of vein disease (like leg pain and swelling). So be sure to discuss your vein condition with the vein doctor in detail, to get a clearer idea of your out-of-pocket expenses for treatment.

I just wanted to know how to soothe varicose vein pain. Will the vein doctor tell me this?

 Yes, getting your veins treated can be a big step, and it is perfectly normal to be nervous about it. You might simply want to visit a vein doctor to get some pain relief, or to find out if your vein condition is something you need to worry about. Your vein doctor will examine your veins at your appointment, and will let you know the exact status of your vein condition.

If you are not ready to get treatment for varicose veins yet, the vein doctor can give you alternative remedies that can ease the symptoms of vein disease. Your vein physician can have you fitted for compression stockings. When worn regularly, these stockings can reduce pain and leg swelling that occurs as a result of varicose veins.  Your vein doctor might also prescribe pain medication, and may advise you on the best forms of exercise for your varicose veins.

These methods are equally effective if you are wondering how to prevent varicose veins from appearing in the future. But if you are wondering how to get rid of varicose veins that already exist, they may not work.

In the long run, it would make your life easier if you went ahead and got your varicose veins fixed. Even if there is no urgent need for treatment, your symptoms may get worse, and you can develop some nasty complications like ruptured veins and vein ulcers.

Getting varicose vein treatment is not as scary as you might think – most clinics don’t do varicose vein surgery anymore! Traditionally, treatment focused on varicose veins removal. However, today, vein specialists focus on making the vein non-functional instead – which is just as good in terms of results, and helps avoid unnecessary surgery.  These ‘minimally invasive’ procedures help block up the defective varicose veins and spider veins from within, which prevents blood from flowing through the veins. Once the veins are non-functional, they shrink and disappear from view. This improves both the cosmetic appearance and symptoms.

How do I find a varicose vein specialist’s name? How do I choose a varicose vein treatment clinic?

 Varicose veins treatment gives you the best results in expert hands. So, when you choose a vein clinic for your varicose vein treatment, focus on finding a great vein specialist!

Now your next question would be, how do I find a vein doctor near me? When you look for a vein specialist, ensure that you choose a doctor who is a board-certified physician. It is also important that the vein doctor has had adequate experience in diagnosing and treating vein disease. You should be able to assess this from the number of years your vein doctor has worked at the varicose vein treatment clinic, or from the number of patients that they have treated, with a vein condition similar to yours. Additional certifications from reputed organizations, such as the American Board of Vein medicine, are a definite bonus. Remember to choose a doctor who understands your concerns, and who will answer questions – this will help you get through your varicose vein treatment with minimum anxiety and maximum comfort!
