Vein disease results from an interplay of aging, heredity, obesity, inactivity, hormonal changes and excessive, prolonged standing and/or sitting.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Novant Health Vein Specialists is launching an educational campaign to explain the nature of vein disease to the public in simple terms. According to the Winston-Salem, North Carolina vein treatment center, vein disease results from an interplay of aging, heredity, obesity, inactivity, hormonal changes and excessive, prolonged standing and/or sitting. Improved knowledge about these issues can empower the public to take charge of their vein health.
Spider and varicose veins doctor in Winston-Salem, Dr. Ray Workman, says, “Vein disease often goes unnoticed in its early stages. Raising public awareness is intended to prompt citizens to get vein screenings. Early treatment of vein disease can offer the best results.” The Center makes use of modern, painless ultrasound techniques to diagnose vein disease. These procedures can be performed right in the vein specialist’s office with no need for general anesthetics or lengthy recovery times.
Novant Health Vein Specialists hope that providing this educational information will encourage the public to ask their Winston-Salem vein specialist about vein screening and take charge of their vein health.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins result from malfunction of their one-way valves which normally promote the return of blood from the extremities back to the heart. Blood backs up in the veins increasing the pressure against the vein walls resulting in bulging veins. More than just a cosmetic nuisance, however, varicose veins can lead to leg pain, swelling and discoloration.
Many people are unaware of the affordable, effective treatments available to eliminate varicose veins. Modern advances in technology have expanded treatment options to include techniques such as sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy. All of these procedures are well tolerated. They are performed by a highly skilled vein doctor on an outpatient basis with most patients able to return to work the next day.
