Phlebology is a relatively new field, created in 1998. There have been many professional societies that claim to be the one, true organization thus there is conflict in the field. Because of this, Phlebology will likely become an American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) recognized field by 2025 rather than sooner. This delay has caused a ripple effect as our "information campaign" has been halted as well. Therefore, many physicians have little, if no, knowledge of vein disease. Many have also sent their patients to colleagues that weren't proficient in venous treatment. The results were subpar and now the physician believes that vein treatments don't work. We are changing the hearts and minds of people daily in our clinic. We will prove that to you and your doctors.
Las Vegas Vein is an Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) certified medical center. IAC certification serves as a network of accredited medical centers representing more than 40 medical specialties, providing an index for patients of providers who are committed to providing quality examinations and medical testing. Las Vegas Vein ranks as the only certified IAC vein center within the state of Nevada.
While age and lack of exercise are general factors for everyone, the unique hormonal changes created by conditions such as pregnancy or menopause cause varicose veins to become more prominent and harmful.
Varicose veins (also known as “spider veins”) can be removed from a patient’s affected areas by medical procedures. However, there are things you can do to slow the effects of varicose veins on your own: frequent exercise, healthy diet, and proper clothing.
While lymphedema is presently not a curable condition, Las Vegas Vein works with patients to help manage the symptoms by providing compression treatments and physical therapy to help reduce swelling and discomfort.
While women are primarily the ones that are affected by varicose vein disease (55 to 60 percent), about 40 to 45 percent of men will develop vein disease as well. Surprisingly, men are less apt to seek medical treatment for the conditions, even though it is no less problematic or painful.
Of course you can. Venous Insufficiency is a condition to be treated urgently but is not an emergency. Remember, vein disease is a progressive condition that will only get worse if left untreated. Patients can avoid significant health drawbacks by remembering that the sooner they get their veins treated, the easier they are to treat and the sooner they reach their goals. We would not recommend postponing if there is a venous ulcer or a frank bleeding vessel as those can become an emergency.
