Make your Legs Look and Feel their Best

by | Jun 26, 2019 | Medical

People can develop leg pain and varicose veins because of many different reasons. Sometimes they are caused by abnormally functioning veins. The veins in the leg bring the blood from the feet back up to the heart. When walking, the calf muscles activate the venous pump in the leg and promote venous return. There are valves within the vein that allow one-way flow. In many people, however, the veins become enlarged and the valves become incompetent, allowing blood to pool in the legs and ankles. This is called venous reflux. This can cause patients to develop leg pain, especially when standing for long periods of time. In addition, patients may also have leg swelling, itching, cramping, fatigue, heaviness, or restless legs. If left long enough, patients can develop permanent skin discoloration or an ulcer near their ankle.
Fortunately, venous reflux can be treated with minimally invasive procedures which can allow patients to go back to work the next day. Veins with venous reflux can be closed with Radiofrequency catheter ablation which requires just a single needle puncture performed under local anesthesia. Remaining unsightly bulging varicose veins can also be removed under local anesthesia with multiple tiny incisions.
