One of the most common things we hear our patients say is, “I wish I had done this sooner.” So many people suffer needlessly with painful varicose veins. They let them keep them from doing so many things…sometimes for years. It makes us sad knowing that varicose veins are very easy to treat. At the Vein Clinic of Greater Kansas City, we take the fear out of varicose vein treatments. If you’ve been putting off treatment for fear of pain, cost, or downtime, read on to see just how easy it is to get rid of your varicose veins and the pain they cause.
Don’t Let the Fear of Pain Keep You in Pain
Many people think varicose vein treatment is painful. While we wouldn’t say varicose vein treatment is fun, it’s not near as bad as living with the pain of varicose veins for years. We offer a variety of treatment options and most involve minimal discomfort and take about an hour to perform. If you’re afraid, book an evaluation and come talk to Dr. Barbieri about it. He will walk you through the options and explain each one so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
Varicose Veins Are Covered by Most Insurance Providers
Many people let cost keep them from getting their veins treated. But this is unnecessary in most cases. The good news is that most insurance carriers cover varicose vein treatment if it is deemed “medically necessary.” If you have leg pain, your symptoms affect your daily life, and a doctor has verified that you have venous reflux, chances are that your insurance will offer coverage. Again, come see Dr. Barbieri for an evaluation to find out if your veins qualify. Our staff will help you navigate the insurance information too.
You Don’t Have Time for the Downtime
If you’ve put off varicose vein treatment because you think you will need time off of work or just can’t afford to be off of your feet for days, think again. There is no hospitalization necessary. All of our procedures are outpatient. We perform them right here in our office and the actual varicose vein procedure only takes about two hours of your time or less. You can return to work the next day or even the same day in most cases. Usually, all that’s required is compression stockings for a few days
