The Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center is launching a new public health campaign using social media to educate the public about the benefits of using painless ultrasound technology in vein care. According to the Nashville, Tennessee Center, the use of ultrasound can provide invaluable diagnostic information to physicians that can lead to healthier outcomes for patients.
According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, Center director, ultrasound has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease. “With ultrasound, we can spot deep vein thrombosis, an invisible but potentially deadly complication of vein disease, which may go completely unnoticed by patients. We can also use ultrasound to more precisely pinpoint varicose veins and spider veins that need to be removed.” The Center makes use of various modern ultrasound techniques including the popular and effective Endovenous Laser Treatment to improve both the health and appearance of patients’ legs.
The Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center hopes that by providing this information, patients will be encouraged to ask for ultrasound as part of their vein treatment strategy. The Center will run this new campaign throughout September, with information on their website, on the Center’s Facebook page, and via Twitter.
