California Varicose Vein & Vascular, a physician-owned vascular surgery practice which specializes in the treatment of vascular conditions including varicose veins, has moved to a new location at 1320 Bailey Drive, Suite 103, Hanford, CA. Dr. Sheikh A. Latif, DO, FACOS, a board-certified surgeon, founded California Varicose Vein & Vascular to offer his services in Kings County, Fresno County, Tulare County, Kern County and beyond.
Previously located in 125 Mall Drive, Suite 315, in Hanford, Dr. Latif and his staff believes that the move to a new location will grant larger audiences a chance to experience their services, as well as the opportunity to alleviate themselves from such ailments. The practice’s services include venous reflux studies and endovenous ablation for the safe and effective treatment of varicose veins.
“Many people struggle with leg fatigue and heaviness while walking due to severe varicose veins.” — Dr. Sheikh A. Latif, DO, FACOS, founder of California Varicose Vein & Vascular.
According to Dr. Latif, over 25 million people in the United States suffer from symptomatic venous insufficiency, the underlying cause of varicose veins. Venous insufficiency progressively damages the valves of the saphenous vein (or the largest vein in the leg which runs from the ankle to the groin) and cosmetically disfigures the leg. Though varicose veins are often benign, they can be a sign of venous disease and should be diagnosed and treated by a vascular specialist to avoid progression to chronic venous insufficiency.
Common symptoms of venous insufficiency include:
- Varicose veins
- Burning or itching of the skin
- Color and texture changes of the skin
- Aching, tired or weak legs, especially after long periods of standing or sitting
- Swollen legs and ankles (edema)
- Poorly healing wounds such as skin ulcers commonly above the medial malleolus
“Because of Dr. Latif, I am able to walk long distances now.” — Roger Brasil, a patient treated for varicose veins, who works for Hanford’s tourism service and is also a classic fire engine driver.
California Varicose Vein & Vascular also offers treatment for peripheral artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, chronic non-healing leg wounds, leg pain, and the placement and maintenance of dialysis access.
