Siragusa Vein & Laser Center Releases a New Article on Complications of Swollen Legs and Ankles to Promote Timely Diagnosis and Treatment
Date:12/3/2013

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Siragusa Vein & Laser Center is releasing a new article that reveals some of the lesser known problems that are associated with swollen legs and ankles, as well as the causes and at-home treatments that patients can do themselves until they can get proper medical care. According to the Nashville based Center, patients may patients may not think to see a spider and varicose veins doctor in Nashville to treat their swollen legs, but that can be a costly mistake.

According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, Center director and a leading vein specialist in Nashville, there are two primary vein diseases associated with swollen legs. “Venous reflux and deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, are two very different venous diseases that share common symptoms. Both diseases can result in deadly blood clotting, stroke or embolism.” The Center provides free preliminary consultations and vein screenings.

Siragusa Vein and Laser Center hopes that by providing this information, patients currently suffering from leg discomfort will have a greater awareness of the consequences of letting their condition go untreated. Patients are encouraged to seek much needed treatment for these potentially life-threating conditions. More information about venous reflux, DVT and more can be found by visiting: http://www.nashvilleveincenter.com/.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

At the very least, varicose veins have an unpleasant appearance. However, they can also lead to other serious consequences such as painful, swollen legs. Over half of all Americans have some form of vein disease. Aging is probably the biggest offender in terms of risk factors for the development of varicose veins.

Is it an overgeneralization to say that we all want to look younger and healthier? Certainly, many of us do. With modern advances in technology, there are multiple treatment options available for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy are but a few. Now you see them—now, you don’t. In the hands of leading vein doctors, it is often just that simple.
