Circulatory Disorder of the Veins

Inside the superficial veins in the legs are a series of valves, that are essentially one-way doors that prevent blood from falling back down towards the feet. If the valves stop working properly, blood leaks downwards and the veins below the valves become full of excess blood. The increased pressure in these veins can lead to spider veins and varicose veins over time.

Treat Venous Insufficiency

The primary purpose of treating venous insufficiency is for symptomatic relief and improving visual appearance. However, because vein disease is progressive, long term benefits may include: preventing skin changes, preventing phlebitis or painful inflammation of the veins due to blood clot formation, preventing skin discoloration.

Symptoms of Venous Insufficiency

Evaluation For Vein Disease

Leg Swelling

Even if varicose veins are not visible,  swelling in your legs can be due to vein disease.

Chronic venous insufficiency causes leg swelling due to the increased venous pressure in the legs from faulty veins.   Other more significant considerations for your vein specialist  include iliac vein compression or May-Thurner Syndrome seen with deep vein disease.

Heavy Legs

Leg Heaviness is another symptom of venous insufficiency. This is particularly true for individuals who spend a considerable amount of time on their feet. If you have noticed leg heaviness at the end of the day, a consultation with a vein specialist can help provide some answers and relief.   An early diagnosis can lead to improved results and healthier living.

Leg Cramps

Leg cramps can also be a marker of vein disease and poor circulation in the legs. This is perceived as involuntary twitches or muscle spasms commonly during the night-time.  The leg cramps can be quite painful and disrupt normal routines.  This is the most common reason to seek vein treatment.

Symptoms of vein disease are commonly mis-interpreted or dismissed. This particularly true when varicose veins are unseen. However, the symptoms are progressive and ruin one’s quality of life. At the Vein Wellness Clinics, we are sensitive to each person’s experience with vein disease and are committed to making the right diagnosis and treatment.

Venous Insufficiency Treatment

For mild cases of venous insufficiency, there are a number of at-home treatments such as elevating the legs to reduce pressure, wearing compression stockings to increase blood flow, and regular exercise.

No matter how minor or serious you believe your venous insufficiency may be, it’s best practice to receive a professional consultation from NJ’s top clinic for venous insufficiency. At Vein Wellness Clinics, our experienced vascular specialists are trained to detect venous insufficiency and devise a plan to help you live a more comfortable life.

Treatments for more severe vein disease and venous insufficiency include:

Sсlеrоthеrару

Sсlеrоthеrару іѕ a mеdісаl рrосеdurе thаt involves thе іnjесtіоn оf a sclerosant іntо a vеіn tо соmрlеtеlу оblіtеrаtе іt. This is the most common technique for spider vein removal.

RFA

The standard of today’s treatments for venous insufficiency, Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) involves a small catheter that delivers heat energy to close down the abnormal vein. The procedure is minimally-invasive and can be done directly in the office.

VenaSeal

VenaSeal™ is a procedure that uses a special glue to close off damaged veins. The procedure is safe and equally as effective as RF ablation.

ClariVein

ClariVein treatment combines two techniques to treat underlying venous insufficiency. A small catheter is used to both chemically and mechanically treat the diseased vein.

Microphlebectomy

A brief procedure that is only offered by skilled vein clinics and remains one of the best options for treating bulging varicose veins. Done under local anesthesia in an office setting, the vein is removed in small sections through tiny incisions.

Medically necessary procedures are typically covered by your insurance. This can be determined from your initial visit which will include a complete history, physical, and possibly ultrasound. The results of these tests will help your vein doctor make appropriate treatment plans that are submitted to your insurance carrier for pre-authorization.

Does medical insurance cover vein treatments?

The simple answer is yes. Venous insufficiency is a medical condition that is progressive and can have serious implications. Your vein specialist will provide your insurance carrier a vein treatment plan based on medical necessity.
