Be Bold – Don’t Wait for Varicose Vein Treatment

Don't Wait for Varicose vein treatment

Why do we do it? We put up with things much too long before taking action. Health problems can be the worst. Things that have easy fixes like carpal tunnel syndrome, hearing loss, or varicose veins will trouble us for years before we finally do something about it. Is it fear? Is it a lack of time? Is it money? Is it an overabundance of patience? Is it procrastination? Whatever the reason, almost everyone realizes after the problem is fixed, that they waited way too long to address it. We can’t tell you the amount of times we hear, “I wish I would have done this sooner!” If we could tell our patients one thing, it would be this … don’t wait for varicose vein treatment.

Varicose Veins Do Not Improve on Their Own

So what’s holding you back from getting your varicose veins treated? Venous insufficiency is a chronic condition and will not go away without treatment. Varicose veins occur when the valves within the veins fail to function properly. Veins are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart, and the valves prevent the backward flow of blood. When these valves weaken or become damaged, blood can pool in the veins, causing them to swell and bulge. Varicose veins can be caused by heredity, age, excess weight, hormones, or prolonged standing or sitting. They will not get better with exercise, diet, or supplements. Sure, you can improve the symptoms by losing weight, walking more, and wearing support stockings, but it won’t make the underlying condition go away.

Varicose Vein Treatment Is Easy and Done In Office

Many people are afraid of the treatment itself. We’re here to tell you that if you are suffering from the pain of varicose veins, waiting is only prolonging that situation. Varicose vein treatments are minimally invasive, and done right here in our office – no hospitalization necessary. They are fast (less than two hours, most treatments are less than an hour) and there’s no downtime after. Most patients will need at least two treatments. Some may need more depending on the severity of the case. Imagine a couple of office visits and your legs are pain-free!

Varicose Vein Treatment Is Covered by Most Insurance Plans

Sometimes the hardest part of making a change is taking the first small step. If you see your insurance company on this list, that means your office evaluation will be covered by whatever percentage your plan is set up for. Please note that insurance “coverage” doesn’t always mean 100%. Varicose vein treatment is covered like any other specialist (cardiologist, urologist, dermatologist). Call your insurance company if you’re not sure about your coverage. At your evaluation, Dr. Barbieri will examine your legs and verify that you suffer from venous insufficiency. If you do, you will qualify medically for varicose vein treatment. He will let you know your treatment options and schedule your first treatment.

There’s No Reason to Wait!

One of the best things about being in this business is hearing how happy our patients are after having varicose vein treatments. Here are one happy patient’s thoughts:

“I had a lot of anxiety with treating my vein issues.They were affecting my daily duties and brought me a lot of grief. Dr. Barbieri and his staff were knowledgeable, caring, supportive, and made this such a pleasant experience for me. I cannot believe how much better I feel and the confidence I feel that they “got the job done” is through the roof! Highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing treatment for venous disorders.”
