Do you suffer from tired legs, foot tingling, leg numbness, and swelling? All of these symptoms could be a sign of a vein disease, which varicose vein removal and spider vein removal could improve.
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet. That's because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body.
Which are the symptoms?
Varicose veins usually don't cause any pain. Signs you may have varicose veins include:
When painful signs and symptoms occur, they may include:
What causes varicose veins?
Arteries carry blood from your heart to the rest of your tissues. Veins return blood from the rest of your body to your heart, so the blood can be recirculated. To return blood to your heart, the veins in your legs must work against gravity. Muscle contractions in your lower legs act as pumps, and elastic vein walls help blood return to your heart. Tiny valves in your veins open as blood flows toward your heart then close to stop blood from flowing backward.
Risk factors include:
Can there be complications?
Complications of varicose veins, although rare, can include:
When to see a doctor for varicose veins removal?
Self-care — such as exercise, elevating your legs or wearing compression stockings — can help you ease the pain of varicose veins and may prevent them from getting worse. But if you're concerned about how your veins look and feel and self-care measures haven't stopped your condition from getting worse, see your doctor.
How can be varicose veins treated?
Fortunately, treatment usually doesn't mean a hospital stay or a long, uncomfortable recovery. Thanks to less invasive procedures, varicose veins can generally be treated on an outpatient basis.
What are the prices for varicose vein removal?
The cost of vein stripping surgery ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 plus fees charged by the hospital or surgical center. Costs for EVLT (endovenous laser treatment) range from $600 to $3,000, depending on how much of the vein needs to be treated. Insurance may pick up part of the tab, however, if the varicose veins are painful or debilitating.
Who performs the varicose vein removal procedure?
An interventional radiologist, a doctor specially trained in the diagnosis and minimally invasive treatment of all types of venous disorders, can assess your clinical situation through a thorough history,a clinical examination and, in many cases, a duplex ultrasound examination of your venous system.
Varicose vein removal treatment takes about an hour with results of immediate relief of your symptoms. You can return to regular activity immediately with little or no pain.
