A varicose vein is a blood vessel noticeable under the skin. It often looks like a knotty, twisted cord and appears mostly on the legs and feet. There are numerous causes for varicose veins. Everything from heredity, obesity, and pregnancy play a part in developing this vein disorder. It is a chronic condition, so once you experience problems with varicose veins, there is always the chance of it reoccurring, even after varicose veins treatment. At Chicago Vein Institute, our doctors and staff specialize in helping patients choose the right treatment to fix their vein disorder.
We start with an ultrasound to provide a descriptive look at your veins, helping us pinpoint the source of the problem and create a treatment plan. Compression stockings, custom fit for your body, are the first line of defense for slowing the progression of varicose veins.
Minimally Invasive Treatment For Varicose Veins
First, we should treat the cause of the varicose veins. Most likely, your varicose veins are related to the major venous system. This can be treated with endovenous laser ablation (ELA).
Depending on the progression of the vein disease, other treatments may need to be implemented, including sclerotherapy and/or phlebectomy. When this happens, you should feel a significant relief in symptoms, improving your quality of life.
