Over half of people over the age of 50 suffer from some form of vein disease. And yet, only a small fraction of those people actually seek treatment from a vein treatment center. One of the reasons for this is that many people believe in myths that they have heard about vein doctors from friends, or that they have heard on the Internet. In this article, we hope to dispel a few of these myths, and provide you with some facts.
What should Hawaii residents know about vein doctors?
Probably the first and foremost thing you should know about the best vein doctors in Hawaii who have based their vein treatment center in Hawaii is that we are “doctors first, and vein doctors second.” Whatever the symptoms are that you may be experiencing and that have brought you to us, we are concerned with finding the causes of them so we can treat you as a whole person, and improve your overall health.
If, after a thorough physical examination, we find that your symptoms are due to vein disease, we will tell you, and then recommend the best, most state-of-the-art treatments to eliminate that disease. If we find that your symptoms are NOT due to vein disease, we’ll tell you that, too, and either help you ourselves based on our long experience as general practitioners, or recommend you to another specialist who can help.
Also, our treatments aren’t limited to the ones we perform in our offices
As doctors concerned with your overall health, we often find ourselves making recommendations for diet programs, exercise routines, and lifestyle changes to not only help eliminate any vein problems you might have, but also to improve your overall health and sense of well-being. For example, two of the most important things we help our patients with are overcoming smoking and inactivity, both of which have been linked not only to vein disease but more serious diseases as well. We can help you find smoking cessation and exercise programs to help keep you healthy.
Finally, the biggest myth about vein doctors is that their treatments hurt
This myth is a carryover from how varicose veins and other vein diseases were treated decades ago, and has nothing to do with modern treatment methods. All of the treatment techniques we use are minimally-invasive, which means that they are painless and in most cases don’t even require a local anesthetic. You can literally walk into our comfortable offices with varicose veins and walk out about an hour later without them.
So don’t continue to believe any of the myths you’ve heard that have kept you from seeking treatment for your varicose veins, spider veins, swollen legs and ankles, or other vein problems in the past. Instead, pick up your phone and call Maui vein treatment specialist Dr. Randall S. Juleff today or go online and schedule an initial consultation. You’ll be happy you did.
