A Hawaii Vein Specialist Publishes a New Article about Recent Changes in Vein Treatment

Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii releases a new article in which they discuss the types of cross-generational misinformation that can proliferate about varicose veins. According to a Hawaii vein specialist, if a mother had varicose veins and is now advising her child about what to do about them, it is likely that the information she’s giving is wrong. It’s not her fault; it’s just that vascular medicine has advanced in the last two decades.

According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of one of the best Maui vein treatment centers, “a generation ago there was little medical science could do to treat varicose veins, so “living with them” was all you could look forward to. The only reliable way to remove varicose veins was a surgical procedure called “vein stripping” that was as onerous as its name implies. If this is the only treatment your mother knew, no wonder she believed that having varicose veins removed was a bad idea.”

In the article, Dr. Juleff explains that modern Maui vein treatment is not like this at all, and that removal of varicose veins can be accomplished safely, easily, without hospitalization, and in about an hour.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.

There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
