Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Novant Health Vein Specialists is observing Men’s Health Month this June with the launch of a new campaign to provide information on the health issues that men face. The center has published an article offering guidance on how men can reduce their risk of experiencing vein disease, as well as providing public health information via social media.
In the article, Dr. Ray Workman and Dr. Shawn Fleming encourage men to make healthy lifestyle choices. “While age and heredity have a role to play in a man’s vein disease risk, regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can both have a positive impact on risk levels,” says Dr. Workman. Men also have the option of wearing compression stockings to help encourage proper circulation.
Novant Health Vein Specialists is well equipped to offer education and treatment for many forms of vein disease. The vein center is providing more information on how men can better care for their health on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
Dr. Workman and Dr. Fleming encourage men to seek out the help of a vein doctor to address already existing vein disease. Treatments are available to address varicose veins, spider veins, and many other circulation issues.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them. Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options.
Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
