Veins carry blood that has been pumped through your body back to your heart. Maintaining healthy veins is an essential part of achieving exceptional health and wellness. Mission Surgical Clinic offers a variety of vein treatments to remove, repair, reroute, or replace diseased veins and reduce the risk of complications.
Your doctor will recommend that you undergo vein treatments if you experience one or more of the following problems:
Symptoms of a vein disease include leg pain, distorted veins, open wounds, numbness, weakness, leg swelling, skin changes, and cramping.
To find out if you need vein treatments, the Mission Surgical Clinic team discusses your medical history and symptoms. They measure your blood pressure and pulse, check your other vital signs, and then complete a physical exam.
The Mission Surgical Clinic specialists could suggest that you undergo blood tests, ultrasound, angiography, or another diagnostic procedure to diagnose your condition and develop an effective treatment plan.
Depending on what kind of vein disease you have and how severe it is, the team at Mission Surgical Clinic will suggest:
Lifestyle changes that often improve vein problems include eating nutritious foods, getting regular exercise, and not standing or sitting for long periods. You should also stay at a healthy weight and not smoke.
Wearing compression stockings as directed by your provider can improve your circulation, reduce swelling, ease leg pain, and improve the health of diseased veins.
In addition to compression stockings, other nonsurgical vein treatments include taking prescribed medicines, sclerotherapy (vein injections), laser treatment, and radiofrequency ablation.
Surgical vein treatments include bypass surgery to reroute blood from diseased veins and angioplasty with a stent to widen (and keep open) narrowed blood vessels. Mission Surgical Clinic specialists use the most cutting-edge technology available, including robotics, to give you the best outcome.
