Covington, LA. Doctors from La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center have published a new article in which they discuss the ways that they detect and diagnose vein disease. Modern vein treatment in New Orleans is nothing like it was only a few decades ago. In those “bad old days,” patients often had to go into a hospital, undergo general anesthesia, and submit to invasive procedures just to find out if they were sick. These days, the diagnostic procedures used to detect vein disease are so fast and painless that a full venous health screening can be completed in about an hour, in the comfort of a doctor’s office
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of the vein clinic in Covington, advances in modern medicine have made getting a vein health checkup so easy and painless that there is little excuse not to get one. As he explains, “We start by asking our patients about their symptoms, their medical history and (because vein disease is hereditary) that of their close relatives, and about lifestyle choices such as whether they smoke or how much exercise they get. Then we perform a number of painless and non-invasive tests to help us actual disorders.”
These New Orleans vein specialists hope that their article helps readers understand the value of getting a screening. Anyone interested in learning more about these issues can visit the clinic’s website.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
The vein disease conditions varicose veins and spider veins affect many women and men in the U.S. The smaller, red-to-purple colored spider veins are located close to the surface of the skin and tend to present mostly cosmetic problems. Varicose veins, however, tend to be bigger in size and appear as more swollen, tangled and blue in color. Varicose veins can be painful, and may limit a patient’s activities.
In the past, patients with varicose veins or spider veins faced invasive, often painful treatment options. But today, advances in technology give patients a number of minimally-invasive and virtually painless options for effective vein treatment. Some of the best treatments to eliminate problem veins with few side-effects or downtime include sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, endovenous radiofrequency ablation, microphlebetomy, and other laser treatments.
