Why is it important to choose the right medical team for your vein and blood flow issues in the legs and beyond?
It is important to choose the right vein and vascular clinic that offers the comprehensive treatment and beyond for the problems with your lower extremities. Unfortunately, there are some vein clinics which treat varicose veins as a ‘Med Spa’ treatment because they lack an understanding of anatomy. Vascular and cardio vascular surgeons with experience have an understanding of where the disease is coming from and how to address each component of the disease separately. One set of treatment may not work for all the symptoms. Our surgeons will afford you total care by doing ablations, sclerotherapy injections and phlebectomy depending on the symptoms. All vein and vascular treatments are performed by highly experienced and skilled surgeons.
Experience should be the main consideration when choosing the right clinic. A vascular surgeon with many years of experience has seen and treated varieties of clinical cases from early stages to the advanced stages of venous disease. He or she can devise the right plan of treatments necessary for treating venous ulcers and evaluating lymphedema at its early stages.
