Omaha, NE (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute is announcing the launch of a new social media campaign designed to educate the public on what to look for when choosing a vascular doctor. Finding the right vein doctor allows patients to optimize their treatment experience, leading to better outcomes, says the Omaha, NE vein center.
Dr. Thomas Whittle, a leading vascular doctor in Omaha, explains that there are three major areas a patient should consider when choosing a specialist. “A worthwhile vascular doctor has a solid educational background, experience in the relevant treatment field, and is personally compatible with the patient.”
Dr. Whittle explains that there are a number of tasks each vascular doctor in Omaha is responsible for, including diagnosing and treating many different forms of vein disease. A specialist should be able to take on all of these tasks.
The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute will be advising the public on what to look for when choosing a vascular doctor in Omaha through their social media outlets. Individuals can learn more about this topic by visiting the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the month of November.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose and spider veins are quite common in the United States, with about half of all men and women being affected. Spider veins are usually smaller than varicose veins and range in color from reddish to purple. They also lie very close to the skin’s surface. On the other hand, varicose veins appear abundantly larger, rope-like, have a more bluish hue, and bulge out from the skin. Women tend to suffer from varicose veins more frequently than men, although both genders can be affected.
There are many treatment options available today for people who suffer from varicose veins. Modern medical and technological advances have birthed effective treatments that do not require time-consuming and dangerous surgery. These procedures include sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, and endovenous laser treatment.
