At Premier Vein Center we provide therapeutic and advanced treatments for vein diseases utilizing state-of-the-art, minimally invasive techniques along with image guidance.
During the first visit we do a thorough ultrasound evaluation of all the veins in the legs. We not only map out what they look like, but more importantly, we locate all the veins that have damaged valves, which are causing the symptoms.
Typically these veins can be mapped out like a tree; with a main trunk, branches, and leaves. The branches and leaves are what might be seen on the skin surface. The branches represent the rope-like bulging varicose veins. The leaves represent the spider veins. It is essential to find all the trunks or leak points which are the main culprit in varicose vein disease.
After completion of the ultrasound and vein mapping, our team will conduct a complete symptom assessment and medical history review. Although treatment will not be done on the first visit, the patient should plan to spend time discussing all vein concerns as well as therapy goals.
Approximate consultation time: 60 minutes
