Diagnosing and treating vein disease is a very specialized field, one that requires a great deal of expertise, training, and on-the-job experience. It takes many years to master the use of ultrasound to look beneath the surface of the skin and detect the presence of diseases such as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT). And then it requires even more years to master the minimally-invasive interventional radiology procedures used to treat them.
Vein Clinics of Hawaii is widely regarded as one of the best vein treatment centers in all the Hawaiian islands because our doctors have those years of training and experience. We know which minor cases of varicose veins can be treated conservatively with diet, exercise, and the use of compression stockings. And we also know which cases of varicose veins are more serious, and can really only be treated by removing them completely. Left untreated, these more serious cases won’t ever get better or “go away on their own” – they’ll get worse, and can result in years of pain, discomfort, and even disability.
So trust your general practitioner and follow his or her advice

So if your GP has noticed early signs of spider veins, varicose veins, or even DVT, don’t procrastinate – free yourself from pain and find a Hawaii vein specialist by calling our offices or go online, and trust us to help you.
