I need to find a good vein center near me! How do I look for a medical center?
Just go online, and look for ‘Vein Center near me’!
This is obviously the easy part. We tend to look for restaurants and supermarkets online, so why not vein treatment clinics? When you do this, you will immediately get a list of vein clinics located near you, which treat varicose veins and spider veins. Now all that remains, is to choose from the list. This is when the slightly more difficult part comes in. What comes next?
Look at the bios of the vein doctors available at the vein center
The caliber of a vein treatment clinic is mostly determined by the vein specialist practicing there. So now, you must be thinking ‘should I look for a vein doctor near me instead?’ Well, not exactly! But you must go to the website of your chosen vein clinic, and look up the bios of the vein doctors practising there. Check out the following things on the bio:
- Is your vein doctor a board certified physician? Vein specialists may be anesthesiologists, surgeons, or even internal medicine specialists, but it is essential that they are board certified in their field.
- Does your vein doctor have any experience in treating vein diseases? Some vein doctors have a certified diplomate from the American Board of Vein Medicine, which attests to their experience in performing varicose and spider vein treatment.
Choosing a vein clinic near me: Check if the clinic offers the right treatment options for your vein condition
Most top vein clinics today offer minimally invasive treatment options for varicose and spider vein treatment. As opposed to traditional methods like vein stripping, these methods do not require actual removal of the varicose or spider vein. Instead, these procedures seal off the vein so that blood can no longer flow through them. These techniques are extremely effective in improving both symptoms and appearance – and they also have the advantages of being very comfortable, very quick, and needing absolutely no recovery time. So this is what you need to look at:
Does the vein treatment clinic offer the right procedures for varicose veins?
A good varicose vein treatment center will offer the following advanced varicose vein treatments:
- VenaSeal: This is a state of the art method that literally involves supergluing your veins to seal them shut! This does not involve any post-procedure healing, and is the least painful of all procedures.
- Radiofrequency ablation: This is a tried and tested option that is more likely to have insurance coverage. In RFA, a catheter is inserted into the defective vein, and this delivers heat to the vein from within. The heat causes the vein walls to scar and seal off over a period of time.
- Endovenous laser ablation: Similar to RFA, this procedure uses laser energy instead of radiofrequency waves to deliver heat. However, some patients find this more uncomfortable than RFA, so RFA is probably a better option!
Does the vein treatment clinic offer sclerotherapy near me?
If you are choosing a spider vein clinic, you must ensure that they offer sclerotherapy, which is the gold standard for spider vein treatment. In sclerotherapy, a medicated solution called sclerosant is injected into the spider veins. The sclerosant causes the vein walls to swell and stick to each other, which seals the vein shut. The sealed vein eventually gets digested by the body, and you will no longer be able to see it.
Some vein clinics might offer laser treatment instead. While the per session cost of laser may be less, it simply does not give the same results as sclerotherapy – you will need three to four sessions at least to achieve equivalent results. So in the long run, you will end up spending more time and money! Most spider vein doctors consider using lasers only in delicate areas of the body – such as the face or feet.
Okay, I have a varicose vein specialist name… and a great vein center near me. What comes next?
Since you’ve come so far, do not back down now! See this through by making an appointment to see the vein specialist at the varicose vein treatment center that you have chosen.
When you see the vein doctor, be sure to fill him or her in on your complete medical history. Also mention any symptoms of vein disease that you might have been having, such as leg pain, cramps, or swelling in your feet and ankles.
The vein doctor will assess the information you give, and will examine your leg veins to determine what kind of vein disease you have. The vein physician may also request an ultrasound to view the pattern of blood flow in your veins. Based on the results, you will get a customized treatment plan for your vein condition, and you can go ahead and get the treatment done when convenient!
