Tampa Bay Vein Specialist Discusses When to Seek Treatment for Leg Vein Issues and How to Choose the Right Surgeon
According to a recent study by the American College of Phlebology (ACP), more than 80 million people in the United States suffer from spider veins or varicose veins. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) also estimates in a recent survey that 50% of women over 21 in the United States have spider veins. Dr. Jeffrey Hunt, a vein specialist in Tampa Bay, says seeking treatment for leg vein issues requires diligent research, but is an important step towards having greater self-confidence and a more comfortable everyday life.
At his center for vein treatment in Tampa, Dr. Jeffrey Hunt says leg vein issues are a growing concern amongst his patients, particularly women. A recent survey by the American College of Phlebology (ACP) reports that spider and varicose veins impact more than 80 million people in the United States. Thanks to developments in laser and injection-based treatments, Dr. Hunt says vein treatment specialists can clear up these significant medical complications and eliminate the pain associated with them. With the new technology and procedures available to patients, he says there has never been a better time to treat spider or varicose veins. Dr. Hunt also says varicose veins, a condition typically affecting middle-age women characterized by blood vessels that have become twisted, dilated, or swollen, can be treated through several types of procedures, including ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) also states in a recent study that 50% of women over 21 in the United States are afflicted with spider veins. Given the significant portion of the population suffering from leg vein issues, Dr. Hunt recommends patients seek a qualified and specialized doctor for leg vein treatment. He also suggests consulting with a practice dedicated to quality, personalized care. “Patients should look for the newest non-surgical approaches for their venous problem and a center that has both longevity and extensive experience.”
Whether patients are seeking treatment for spider or varicose veins, Dr. Hunt says finding the right practice for therapy is essential for getting the best results and attaining a more comfortable daily life. “Patients should begin seeking treatment if their appearance bothers them or if they develop symptoms such as heaviness and aches due to spider or bulging varicose veins.”
