Patients who are considering treatment for vein disease often wonder why there are so many treatments to choose from. Some people only require conservative treatment, such as losing weight and exercising more, while others opt for surface laser sclerotherapy or endovenous laser treatment. The simple answer is that while many people suffer from vein disease, there are differences in their conditions that make certain treatments a better choice for them. You should work with your vein expert to make a choice of treatment in Hawaii that is right for you.
Most patients will schedule a consultation with a doctor in Hawaii because of the visible symptoms of spider or varicose veins. Some patients will not seek treatment until they have begun to experience symptoms such as fatigue or swelling that begins to interfere with their lifestyle. During the consultation, the doctor will look at the person’s medical and family histories, do a physical exam, and perform some diagnostic tests to see how the veins in the legs are functioning. Depending on the information the doctor collects, the existence or risk of developing some more serious types of vein disease, such as deep vein thrombosis or pelvic congestion syndrome, may increase the importance of getting treatment right away.
Spider veins are usually harmless and occur close to the skin’s surface. They are not usually a threat to health and are only treated to improve the appearance of the patient’s legs. On the other hand, some vein problems can worsen over time, leading to more serious conditions. Dr. Randall Juleff offers a number of types of modern vein treatment in Hawaii that are right for treating annoying vein related problems.
