Varicose veins. Those are two words that almost everyone has heard but few people can actually medically explain. This really does show the sad new trend manifesting itself in the medical field which is, treat and move on without an explanation. At Bellagio Clinic we implement our own motto which is inform before we treat. This is evident in every patient we treat because we require a no change consultation before we even think about doing a procedure on anyone. These consultations are a great way for the staff to become familiar with the patient as well as for the patient to ask any questions they have or voice any concerns.
These consultations are especially important when it comes to varicose veins. In a consultation for varicose veins some major questions are sure to surface. Some of these questions might be; what causes varicose veins, can exercise help, what is the recovery time, or can I afford the treatment? If you were to come in for a consultation the questions might be answered as followed.
What causes varicose veins? Well, there are many causes of varicose veins; it can be anything from your hormones during pregnancy or menstruation, genetic factors, or your body type and lifestyle. Let me ask you some questions about you to determine what may have caused your varicose veins?...
Can exercise help my varicose veins? Exercise can make them feel better but there are some that can actually make your veins worse. The exercises to avoid would be stair masters, heavy leg squats, heavy weight leg presses, and running.
What kind of recovery time am I looking at? Your recovery time will be minimal. Most people will actually return to work the very next day. You may experience minor soreness for 2-3 weeks but that can be controlled by taking ibuprofen.
Can I afford the treatment for my varicose veins? Most people find that they are covered by their health insurance company. You are usually covered if you experience any of the following symptoms; pain, swelling, itchiness, burning sensation, restless leg syndrome, ulcer, tenderness over the varicose vein, or bleeding. If you are not sure if your insurance will cover the procedure our office will be happy to call your insurance and find out so you don’t have to worry about it.
Because Bellagio Clinic is so willing to take the time to get to know our patients individual cases, we also do our best to get you the best results because we know you personally and want you to have the best experience with us.
