Vein treatments are offered by a number of practices in various specialities ranging from dermatologists to plastic surgeons; however, the importance of finding right doctor could not have a better reason than this - a recent study reveals that 1 out of every 7 women are having the wrong varicose vein treatment. In fact, for women who have had children this number increases to 1 out of every 5. With the rapid increase in the number of clinics and hospitals offering cut-price treatments for varicose veins, it is anticipated that these numbers will continue to grow over time.
A recent study published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery has demonstrated an inherent failure for doctors unfamiliar with venous and lymphatic medicine to check for underlying causes of varicose veins - particularly in the pelvic region - before treating leg veins. The lack of proper training and ability to understand the root cause of such a disease is a major contributing factor in why women find that their varicose veins return even after treatment.
Understanding the dynamics of proper venous disease treatment can prevent vein recurrence, but requires treating the problem at its source. For example, varicose veins in women often arise as a result of pelvic venous insufficiencies that feed blood in the legs. If these pelvic veins are not treated, the varicose veins in the legs will cost likely come back later on. By using an ultrasound, a certified vein specialist will be able to make the correct diagnosis, allowing for the patient to receive the best possible treatment plan - and treat all of the varicose veins.
