Sitting or standing for a long time, pregnancy, obesity, and hereditary factors can all increase your risk of developing vein problems in your legs. The vein center at Advanced Heart and Vein Center is staffed with providers who have helped many patients overcome leg pain and prevent serious complications due to venous disease.
These are a few of the most common problems treated:
Chronic Venous Insufficiency: Chronic venous insufficiency generally refers to blood pooling in your veins due to weakened or damaged valves. This condition leads to other complications such as skin ulcers that don’t heal and varicose veins.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): Thrombosis is an inflammation of a vein that develops due to a blood clot. Deep vein thrombosis is a very serious problem because the blood clot can break loose, lodge in your lungs, and block blood flow.
Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS): PTS develops when deep vein thrombosis damages the valves or vein wall. This damage remains and causes ongoing venous problems after the DVT blood clot is treated.
