Vein Therapy: Step-by-Step
We can help you take the first step toward healthier, happier more beautiful legs. If you’re like many people, you have put off a decision about getting treatment because you were anxious about what might happen. At VeinTherapies, our friendly, knowledgeable staff has a unique patient-focused approach to care that will put you at ease.
Step 1: Evaluation
Whether you find VeinTherapies on your own or come in because of your doctor’s referral, the first step will be an initial evaluation.
During this first visit you’ll provide information about your medical history and describe your current symptoms to the doctor. The doctor will also examine the affected area. It’s a simple process, and you will feel completely comfortable in our friendly office.
Based on this evaluation, the doctor will then determine if the problem is medical or cosmetic. If your treatment is deemed medically necessary and not cosmetic, insurance documentation will be filed on your behalf for any follow-up visits and tests. You and your
doctor will discuss the next steps.
Step 2: Scheduled Test
Should the doctor determine that your condition is medical (from the initial screening) further testing is usually necessary. An ultrasound or Duplex Scan will be recommended.
The ultrasound test is completely non-invasive and painless. It simply helps us to visualize a vein to determine the exact anatomy, direction of blood flow within the vein and to assess for abnormal valves. With this improved ultrasound technology, the physician is
better able to diagnose the underlying problems and prescribe a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. This is important to achieve the long term cosmetic and therapeutic results. VeinTherapies provides on-site testing at the VeinTherapies accredited
Vascular Lab. The registered vascular technologists have been specifically trained by our vascular surgeon. Immediately following the completion of the test, the doctor analyzes the results and gives you a diagnosis. At this point, your treatment options will be
discussed in detail. You’ll be provided with information about treatments to help you make a decision about the next steps.
Step 3: Treatment
For each patient, treatment may vary, depending on symptoms, diagnosis, and requirements for treatment. The staff at VeinTherapies will make sure all of your questions are answered and that you’re entirely comfortable and informed during whatever treatment is prescribed for you.
