Varicose Veins and Specialized Treatment Options
Get Varicose (Vericose) Vein Relief at Our Vein Clinic with Minimally Invasive Treatment
Varicose Veins (frequently misspelled as vericose veins) are large, swollen, and unappealing veins that affect more than 24 million Americans, both men and women. Varicose veins cause discomfort, inflammation, itching, burning and even bleeding. Varicose veins are progressive, will worsen over time and can lead to potentially serious health consequences, even life-threatening risks like leg ulcers and deep vein thrombosis (clots). Varicose veins along with other any other symptoms of vascular disease should be evaluated and treated by a specialized vein doctor.
Varicose Veins and Early Detection
The best treatment options for varicose veins are available when a vein doctor is able to detect the disease early prior to other vein complications. If you have varicose veins or any of the related symptoms mentioned previously, you should make an appointment with a qualified vein doctor to determine whether or not vascular disease is present and if it is what stage it is in.
State of the Art Varicose Vein Diagnosis Equipment
With our vein clinic’s state-of-the-art ultrasound, Doctor Robelen uses the best possible visual resolution to map the veins and visualize smaller veins as well as nerve structures. The vein mapping technique maximizes precision and aids in the best possible varicose vein treatment option for each individual patient. Southern Illinois Vein Center’s Doctor Robelen has completed advanced training in the conduct and interpretation of ultrasound. Furthermore, Doctor Robelen further helps ensure you get the treatment with the greatest precision and efficacy possible.
Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatment
In the past, varicose veins were treated using a surgical “stripping” method which included removal of the vein from the leg in a hospital based surgical setting. The vein stripping procedure involved general anesthesia, long recovery times, scarring, high rates of complication, and premature recurrences. The good news is that vein stripping is no longer the standard method of varicose vein treatment. Today, Doctor Robelen and his team of vein specialists treat varicose veins using endovenous radiofrequency ablation (ERFA). This varicose vein treatment option is an in-office, minimally invasive technique that is fast, convenient and gets you back to your life with almost no downtime.
