Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
The ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that is indispensible in the treatment of vein disease. The Premier Vein Institute, a Tampa, FL based vein center, is spending the month of September educating the public about the importance of this technology. The center hopes the information it provides will encourage the public to consider ultrasound screenings as a regular part of their vein care routine, allowing for earlier diagnosis and treatment of many forms of vein disease.
Dr. Obinna Nwobi, a leading vein doctor at the Premier Vein Institute, explains that ultrasound screenings have a number of advantages for patients. “An ultrasound allows a patient to have a clear view of what is happening inside his or her veins. This allows for more accurate diagnosis while still remaining quick, comfortable, and affordable.” Dr. Nwobi also notes that because ultrasound tests are non-invasive, they are pain-free and require no recovery time.
The center is utilizing social media to help educate on the benefits on ultrasound. The center’s Facebook and Twitter pages will be providing information on this topic throughout the month of September.

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.
