Many people suffer from varicose veins which is not just a cosmetic issue. With varicose veins, your veins are bulging in such a way that the blood is actually flowing backward through the veins into your legs rather than leaving your legs and going back up to your heart. This misdirection of blood flow causes painful cramps, swelling, discoloration, and ulcers, among other issues which is why, generally speaking, varicose vein treatments will be covered by your insurance provider.
At Sinclair Healthcare, we offer multiple treatment options, including the popular radiofrequency ablation. During this treatment, the radiofrequency can shrink the large blood vessels and can be conveniently performed in our office under local anesthesia. Other treatments include injecting the veins with chemicals that will cause them to shrink, and in more serious cases, manually removing the affected vein may be required, though it is uncommon.
If you are experiencing varicose vein symptoms such as painful swelling, restless legs, or a burning or itching sensation, schedule an appointment to have your legs checked by a medical professional. Our procedures require no downtime and we are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to all our patients.
