Are your legs ready for spring? If you’re embarrassed to wear shorts because of spider veins, varicose veins or leg swelling, Madison Hospital Vein Center can help.
Using the latest minimally-invasive techniques, our vein specialists treat a wide range of venous conditions that can be both painful and unsightly. Varicose veins and spider veins are the most common examples, but we also offer treatment for restless legs, swelling ankles, burning or itching legs, leg ulcers or open wounds, and leg pain or cramping. Most treatments are covered by health insurance, including Medicare, and there’s virtually no down time after a procedure.
The American Heart Association estimates 23 percent of adults in the U.S. suffer from varicose veins.
Varicose vein treatment isn’t just to make your legs look better. Bulging veins can also be a sign of chronic venous insufficiency, where your leg veins are preventing blood from flowing back to the heart normally.
Madison Hospital Vein Center uses sclerotherapy to treat small and uncomplicated varicose veins. During this minimally-invasive procedure, an FDA-approved prescription medication is injected into the affected vein. The medicine causes scarring inside the vein, which forces blood to re-route through healthier veins.
For more complex cases, we use the TriVex system. TriVex is reliable and requires only a few small incisions, through which the physician inserts a light source to illuminate the veins and a scoping device to remove the problem varicose veins.
