25 million people suffer from venous reflux, which causes varicose veins and other severe venous diseases such as leg ulcers. Your legs are made up of a network of veins. Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart.
Venous reflux develops when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged or diseased. This can cause blood to pool in your legs and lead to symptoms such as pain, swelling, swollen limbs, leg heaviness and fatigue, skin changes and skin ulcers, and varicose veins.
While venous reflux itself is not serious, its symptoms often increase the risks of a wide variety of other diseases. Many of these diseases, such as thrombophlebitis, can be serious. Without proper treatment, venous reflux can become debilitating. With diligent treatment and monitoring, however, many patients experience dramatic symptom relief.
The NCMA Vein Center offers several treatment options depending on severity. One popular treatment is radiofrequency ablation (also known as Venefit or VNUS Closure) represents a minimally invasive means of curing varicose veins and venous insufficiency. It involves the use of radiofrequency energy, delivered through a catheter in a vein, to close the vein from the inside. This treatment requires only a tiny incision in the leg to be performed. It is often done in the office using only local anesthesia, and does not require a hospital stay. Most patients find that the procedure is nearly painless, and the vast majority of patients are back to their usual routine by the next day.
One of the best parts about living in Northern California is that there is ample opportunity to enjoy the fullness of life’s experiences. When vein disorders strike, however, it can be both painful and debilitating.
The NCMA Vein Center will set you on the path toward longterm recovery. Soon you’ll be free of the discomfort and pain caused by venous reflux. We developed our clinic to provide comprehensive diagnostics and treatments for all types of vein disorders without lengthy hospital stays or extensive surgeries. We don’t even disrupt your daily routine.
