In our practice at Vein Centers of Hawaii we meet new patients who ask us, “Why do you list so many different vein treatments on your website? I’m confused by all of the possibilities.” Our answer to this question is simple: “Because to maintain our reputation as Hawaii vein specialists, we need to treat each patient individually. Even if we are dealing with something as common as varicose veins, each patient has his or her own priorities and goals for what they want to achieve with their Maui vein treatment.”
If you’ve had this question, spend a few minutes on our website
If you want to learn more about vein disease and why it can’t be eliminated with only one treatment option, see our website at http://www.veinclinicsofhawaii.com/. In the “Your Veins” section, we’ve provided articles about vein disease itself, explaining its causes and symptoms, what factors increase your risk of getting it, and its two most common forms, varicose and spider veins. If you read through those articles, you’ll begin to understand why different techniques are needed.
Next, look through the different treatment options in the “Vein Treatment” section
Whenever possible, we try to start with conservative treatment, using exercise, weight control, and lifestyle changes. This approach allows many patients to control their symptoms without seeking other options. For patients who are more concerned with the cosmetic issues caused by varicose veins and spider veins, we offer a number of different treatments that vary based on the severity of their disease. For example, some spider veins and small varicose veins can be successfully treated with sclerotherapy.
More serious cases of varicose veins may be treated with techniques such as endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) to permanently close the diseased veins. Alternatively, radiofrequency ablation accomplishes the same goal of closing the diseased veins, but using high-frequency electrical energy instead of a chemical foam or a laser. The choice of which of these techniques to use depends on the severity of your vein disease. If your varicose veins have been left untreated for some time, symptoms can escalate to cause swelling of the legs so painful that you can barely walk. In these cases, techniques such as phlebectomy can help to reduce the swelling quickly.
The bottom line is that we recommend the treatment best suited to you
If conservative treatment and the use of compression stockings is all you need to deal with your varicose veins, that is what we’ll recommend. If, on the other hand, you are tired of how varicose veins make your legs look, we can remove them entirely using other techniques. The range of techniques that we offer and specialize in is the very thing that makes us one of the best Maui vein treatment centers. To find out more, simply go online or pick up the telephone and call the Hawaii vein specialists in Kauai. We’ll set up an appointment for a consultation, and then advise you as to the treatment options that are best for you.
