When your legs have been feeling tired, fatigued, or painful and it’s time to think about treatment for your varicose veins or spider veins, there are some important items to take into consideration. In order to make the best possible choices, you may want to ask some vital questions including which treatment options are available and when is the best time to have the treatment done, who will perform it, and whether your insurance will cover it. Follow these guidelines to help ensure your very best outcomes.
- Avoid outdated treatment techniques such as surgical vein stripping or ligation by choosing a specialist vein doctor who offers more modern and less invasive treatments that are safer and more effective, such as endovenous laser ablation or sclerotherapy for varicose veins.
- Don’t wait! Varicose veins won’t go away by themselves and will only get worse as time goes by. When left untreated, there’s an increased risk for other severe complications such as blood clots, bleeding, skin changes or ulcers. Whereas the treatments that are performed using modern techniques are virtually painless, can be performed in just minutes per leg, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately.
- Don’t neglect to research the qualifications of the doctor and facility. Look for one that maintains the highest credentials, treatment modalities, and patient care standards. Choose a vein center where the doctor is board certified and has expertise in treating the clinical conditions associated with venous conditions, such as spider veins, varicose veins, venous stasis ulcers and deep vein thrombosis.
- Shake off outdated assumptions that varicose veins are only a cosmetic issue. Most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary, and a specialist vein doctor can accurately diagnose and treat vein disease rather than treating vein disease as an aesthetic issue.
