New treatments aim to seal off diseased veins permanently, allowing them to be gradually reabsorbed by the body while blood is re-routed through healthier veins.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Each year, millions of patients seek treatment for vein disease. Now, Dr. Ray Workman of Novant Health and Vein Specialists in Winston-Salem, NC is spreading the word about new modern vein treatment options that tend to be safer and more effective.
Vein treatment has come a long way in the last decade, so what many patients may think they know from past experience could well be out of date today. New treatments aim to seal off diseased veins permanently, allowing them to be gradually reabsorbed by the body while blood is re-routed through healthier veins. This reduces or eliminates the appearance of unsightly leg veins, as well as any accompanying symptoms like aches and pains.
Current, advanced vein treatments are also completed in less time compared to older therapies. Today’s treatments are further minimally invasive, cause very little pain, do not require general anesthesia, produce little to no scarring, and promote much faster recovery times than old methods.
To be truly informed of the current options for optimal health and quality of life, patients can regularly check out Novant Health Vein Specialists Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and read Dr. Workman’s article on the Novant Health Vein Specialists website.
