What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that may appear near the skin's surface. These irregularly-shaped veins are often dark in color and can be painful or uncomfortable. Varicose veins can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the legs and thighs.
Treatments Offered at Southern Kentucky Vascular
Southern Kentucky Vascular offers a variety of treatments to help reduce or eliminate the appearance of varicose veins. We specialize in advanced and minimally-invasive techniques such as endovenous laser ablation, sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
Endovenous Laser Ablation – This procedure uses a laser to close off the damaged veins and redirect blood to healthy veins. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that requires no incisions or hospital stay.
Sclerotherapy – This technique involves injecting a solution into the affected veins, which causes them to collapse and eventually disappear. This is an effective, safe, and non-surgical option for treating varicose veins.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy – This procedure is used to remove large varicose veins through a series of tiny incisions. It can be done in-office, under local anesthesia.
With our comprehensive treatment options, we are confident that you will find the most effective solution for your individual needs. Our experienced team is standing by to assist you with any questions you may have.
Vein Problems Related to Varicose Veins
A number of vein problems are related to varicose veins and can lead to greater complications such as leg ulcers or deep vein thrombosis. These include:
Telangiectasias - Small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin.
Venous Stasis - A condition in which there is decreased circulation in the veins, leading to swelling and discoloration.
Spider Viens - Small, thin veins often arranged in a web-like pattern.
We understand how uncomfortable and embarrassing vein problems can be. That’s why we at Southern Kentucky Vascular are committed to helping you find the right solution for your needs. To learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Don W. Brown, please contact us today.
