Varicose Veins

Varicose veins can be painful and unsightly, which makes most sufferers seek treatment for this medical condition. There are options ranging from conservative to surgical treatments, and you and your doctor can discuss your case to determine which treatment will give you the results you desire.

Treatment options for varicose veins:

  • Rest and Elevation each day reduces the flow of blood to the lower leg.
  • [+]Compression stockings or support hose can be used to lessen the pain and discomfort from this disease.
  • Medications such as Ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medicine help relieve pain and discomfort.
  • Sclerotherapy involves injecting the veins with medications to block the blood flow, causing them to shrink and disappear.
  • Thermal ablation uses a laser to heat the vein, which makes it seal itself off, stopping the blood flow to the affected area. This causes the varicose vein to die, ending the suffering of the patient.
  • [+]Microphlebectomy
  • [+]Endovenous Ablation

If more involved treatments are needed to manage varicose veins, there are surgical options that will work for some patients. The veins can be stripped, which removes part or most of the vein, effectively stopping the condition in its tracks. This treatment option can be painful, and for many patients, similar results can be achieved using non-surgical treatments. It is best to discuss your options with your varicose vein doctor.

If you suffer from varicose veins, then you need to find a doctor who specializes in treating your medical condition. At Houston Methodist Cardiovascular Surgery Associates, our varicose vein doctors can help you find relief from your painful and unpleasant vein problems.
