Visit Northeast Nebraska's Vein Clinic
Are you suffering from varicose veins or spider veins? Visiting a vein treatment specialist can be beneficial. However, if you have never had an appointment with a vein doctor before, you may wonder whether this is the right option. Before calling the vein clinic to schedule an exam, consider the following factors:
Do You Need to Visit the Vein Clinic?
- What are your symptoms?
For most people, the first symptom of a vein problem is a change in the appearance of the veins in the legs, hands, feet, chest or face. The veins may become discolored, more visible, and even swollen. Some people also experience discomforts such as tingling, burning, cramping, restlessness or weakness. If you are experiencing some or all of these symptoms, it may be time to visit a vein doctor.
- Have you tried at-home treatment?
Some vein issues may respond to at-home treatment; such as rest, elevation of the affected area, compression garments, and weight loss. If you have not tried these methods, you can attempt them before making an appointment with a vein specialist. However, if you have already tried these actions, or if you believe your condition is too severe, it is time to see a vein doctor.
- Are you interested in professional treatment?
If at-home treatment measures are not enough, several professional treatments are available to patients suffering from varicose veins or spider veins. Treatments available from our vein clinic include Sclerotherapy and Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (EVRFA).
