Beyond Vanity: New Treatment Brings Relief to Women After Years of Silent Suffering
Date:2/22/2008

ATLANTA, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Rarely written about, seldom spoken of, and often times left untreated, vein disease negatively affects the lives of an astonishing 40% of women and 25% of men. Bulging, knotted, twisted varicose veins take over legs and turn what once were ordinary tasks and activities into painful ordeals.

Kiki, a 34 year old mother of 3, found the varicose veins significantly affected her life and inhibited her daily routine.

"For me, varicose veins were very painful. My leg constantly throbbed and made it increasingly difficult to go about my day," says Kiki. "It made it difficult to walk and keep up with 3 small children. I was not as active as usual because the pain was too bad to stay on my feet."

Like Kiki, millions suffer in silence, not knowing there is a relatively inexpensive and painless procedure. It goes by the name of EVLT, or Endovenus Laser Treatment, and is performed by world renowned surgeons Dr. Randy Rudderman and Dr. Darrell Caudill of oh2 Medical Spa in Atlanta.

"We often see patients who have gone years without seeking treatment," says Rudderman. "Aside from the overall quality of life being affected, failure to seek treatment for vein disease can lead to much more serious complications such as blood clots, ankle sores and inflammation."

Kiki had been aware of possible treatment options, but was unsure of which to go with.

"I was aware of treatments but not sure which procedure would work best for me. I had varicose veins for 3 years before seeking treatment. I wanted to wait until I was finished having children. I talked with a doctor friend and he recommended the office to me. The procedure was not at all painful, took under an hour and I was back on the treadmill the next day."

There are a series of factors leading to varicose veins which include heredity, gender, pregnancy, age and others. Some factors may speed up the development of this disease and make the veins worse, including prolonged standing, obesity, hormone levels, and physical trauma. A simple one hour procedure is changing the lives of these women, one at a time.

Since having the EVLT procedure, Kiki's life has returned to normal.

"I am able to keep up with my kids and I'm not constantly reminded of the pain in my leg," says Kiki. "I'm not reliant on anyone to help me around the house and am able to exercise freely."
