Varicose Veins is very painful. They form underneath the skin and cause the sensation of swelling. Various causes can cause Varicose Veins, such as Obesity, Hormones, Environmental Factors, Surgery, etc. For any of the above reasons, an early diagnosis and timely Varicose Vein Treatment Adelaide are extremely important for proper circulation and general healthiness.
he Odyssey Vein Clinic Adelaide performs an ultrasound examination to determine whether or not the patient has Varicose Veins and not a growth. If a growth is found, a surgical procedure called selective endoscopic liposuction can remove the growths. This minimally invasive surgery is effective in effectively treat varicose veins. The minimally invasive procedures allow for much less invasive surgery than other types of surgery, which allows for earlier recovery and better results.
Patients undergo a series of tests and examinations to determine if they do have the symptoms of Varicose Veins. The symptoms include leg pain, swelling, and tenderness of the legs. The doctor will ask the patient to perform physical therapy to reduce their symptoms. In most cases, if the doctor detects large veins on a routine physical, they will ask for a referral to a specialist such as a vein specialist to obtain more detailed information about the condition.
Once the doctor has diagnosed the condition, a Varicose Vein Treatment Adelaide plan is developed and implemented. This treatment plan must include both preventative measures and successful procedures. Preventive measures are important in decreasing the risks of Varicose Veins and in preventing further vein growth. Successful procedures will remove the unwanted veins and enable the legs to function normally. The procedure may include stripping the legs of excess skin, positioning them in a reclining position, injecting the legs with a solution that causes them to close, and finally reducing the blood flow to the veins through a leg anchor procedure.
Treatments for Varicose Veins can be performed by any doctor from Odyssey Vein Clinic Adelaide. However, patients who choose not to seek treatment are at an increased risk of developing spider veins, the most common symptom of Varicose Veins. If left untreated, symptoms can cause pain and permanent damage to the legs.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most common varicose vein treatment options available. This procedure involves injecting a chemical sclerant into the largest vein in the body, located in the leg. The chemical irritates the vessel and causes it to constrict, which then shrinks the vein. This treatment can take several weeks to months to work. The most common reason patients stop this procedure is because it causes excessive bleeding, which can cause permanent damage to the leg.
Another option is to use ultrasound guidance or local anaesthetic to numb the affected area. Ultrasound guidance allows the doctor to deliver a targeted beam of light that causes the anesthetic to be injected directly into the abnormal vein. A local anesthetic causes the patient to be injected with a local anesthetic agent. The anesthetic will numb the area but will prevent any other medications from being administered. This procedure is more complicated and often requires two or more physician visits.
