Siragusa Vein and Vascular Publishes New Article Explaining the Differences Between Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 31, 2013

The Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center in Nashville, Tennessee has taken another step in informing the public about the importance of proper vein health. The vein center has released a new educational article, this time specifically targeting varicose veins and spider veins, which are often mistakenly thought to be the same thing.

“Spider veins and varicose veins are two distinct vascular conditions that may require different approaches for treatment,” Says Dr. Tif Siragusa, MD, Director of Siragusa Vein and Vascular. “A proper diagnosis is an essential first step in getting the right treatment. In many cases learning about the differences in these two conditions can help people feel more comfortable visiting the doctor to receive treatment.”

The article also helps to debunk the myth that varicose veins and spider veins are cosmetic problems which people should simply live with. There are simple treatment options available at the Vein and Vascular Center to eliminate both of these conditions.

Dr. Tif Siragusa and the staff of the Vein and Vascular Center plan to continue their efforts to inform the public about these common vascular conditions. In doing so, they hope to encourage people to take steps toward seeking treatment and a cure for both varicose veins and spider veins.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them. Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime.

About the Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center

Dr. Siragusa, Director of the center, provides a personal, individualized approach to each patient based on their history of vascular problems, physical exam findings, as well as the detailed information gained by their Duplex Ultrasound.

Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center’s minimally invasive techniques eliminate the down time associated with surgical procedures of the past.

Moms can get back to taking care of the kids that day and most people are back to work the next day.
