Miami Vascular Specialists: Renowned Expertise in the Treatment of Varicose Veins
Approximately 23% of adults in the US have varicose veins. If you include spider and reticular veins (tiny red capillary veins), the chance of having them increases to 80% of adult men and 85% of adult women. Hereditary factors are often at play here, and most adults with varicose veins will remember a parent with the same problem. However, there are other factors that can generate or worsen varicose veins such as pregnancy, prolonged standing, and obesity.
While varicose veins are generally not a threat to the patient's life, they can make life very uncomfortable. Symptoms can include achy, heavy feeling of the legs. Burning, throbbing, itching, and swelling are not uncommon. In more advanced cases, skin discoloration, ulcers, and bleeding can occur.
Miami Vascular Specialists would like to help. As one of the most respected and sought-after vascular surgery groups in the country, their team of board-certified vascular surgeons have treated thousands of patients. With a focus on patient-centered care, guided by ultrasonic data, Miami Vascular Specialists’ mission is to help every patient meet their individual goals. Those goals could range from cosmetic improvement of the appearance of legs to treatment of more worrisome symptoms such as itching heaviness, and burning; and the treatment of venous ulcers.
