August 24th, 2013. La Vista, NE. The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute is launching a new public health campaign about venous insufficiency. The La Vista, NE based vein center hopes to educate the public about the dangers associated with this form of vein disease. The center says that millions of Americans are affected by this issue, resulting in symptoms ranging from pain and swelling to skin ulcers and varicose veins.
According to Dr. Thomas Whittle, a leading vein doctor at the Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, venous insufficiency can be brought on by lifestyle factors. “Obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and smoking can all impede the vascular system’s ability to effectively move blood. By making healthy changes in these areas patients can lower their risk of experiencing circulation issues.”
The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute will be providing information on many aspects of venous insufficiency, including risk factors and treatments, throughout the month of September. They will be turning to social media to help educate the public on this topic, including Facebook and Twitter.

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.
