AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bunker Vein and Imaging Center is proud to announce its second location, which opened this month in Round Rock, Texas. Dr. Stephen Bunker and his medical team have been treating patients with varicose veins, spider veins and venous disease for over five years in the Central Austin area.
Due to the overwhelming demand of people in need of vein care in North Austin and surrounding areas, Dr. Bunker decided to open a second location at 301 Hesters Crossing, Suite 120, Round Rock, Texas 78681.
A common myth is that varicose and spider veins are only a cosmetic issue, but the appearance of these veins on legs or anywhere on the body is an indication of an underlying medical condition called venous insufficiency. Therefore, most health insurance policies and Medicare cover treatment.
"Austin in particular has a demographic that has two of the highest risk groups for venous disease – Caucasian and Hispanic – with significant visible signs such as varicose veins," says Dr. Bunker. "If vein issues are treated sooner than later, there is a better chance of preventing serious health problems."
According to the Vascular Disease Foundation, ten times more people suffer from venous insufficiency than Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) in the United States, and it affects all age groups. More than 24 million Americans have varicose veins – and 6 million have skin changes – associated with Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Between 10-35% of adults have leg veins that do not work properly. CVI can cause varicose veins, leg edema, leg pain, chronic skin changes and non-healing ulcers.
