Delray Beach Varicose Vein Treatment
Dr. Malvehy is a top vein doctor offering patients in Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach varicose vein treatment and varicose vein removal.
Genetics play the greatest role in whether an individual gets vein varicose veins disease or not. One study found a 90% risk of developing varicose veins if both parents have them. These veins are not functioning properly and require varicose vein treatment. Another major risk factor is pregnancy and multiple pregnancies, in particular. Prolonged standing, menopause and blood clots (deep vein thrombosis or DVT) are also associated with developing varicose veins.
While using compression stockings, losing weight, walking and elevating the legs may provide temporary relief, none of these is definitive varicose vein treatment.
f you are a patient in Delray Beach looking for varicose vein treatment, it’s important to make sure you get an appropriate evaluation from a specialized vein doctor. Only by performing a detailed physical examination and ultrasound can the root of the problem be identified and potential options provided. Dr. Malvehy personally performs all the ultrasounds and evaluations.
Varicose veins commonly cause symptoms including pain, itching, cramping and swelling. Sometimes the symptoms are insidious like aching pain in the calf or restless legs and cramping at night. Patients often tell us the symptoms are bad enough they can’t walk when they are cramping.
Varicose vein treatment can be organized around your work schedule including early morning and afternoon treatments. For patients visiting Dr. Malvehy from outside Delray Beach varicose vein treatment can be performed in a single day after an extensive phone and video consultation.
Patients commonly ask us if varicose vein treatment is covered by insurance. If you have symptoms like pain or swelling and have varicose veins larger than 3 mm, then most insurers will pay for treatment. A multidisciplinary approach combining vein ablation, phlebectomy and sclerotherapy is often necessary to effectively treat varicose veins.
Dr. Malvehy provides customized treatment plans for each of our patients incorporating the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques available. We are happy to offer patients in Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach varicose vein treatment.
