Varicose veins are not just a cosmetic concern, they can lead to larger problems down the road as well as significant discomfort and pain. It is important for men who have varicose veins to seek treatment as soon as possible, when the most conservative treatment options can provide a lasting result. For those who stand for most of the day at work or are athletic, early treatment can be especially important.
Dr. Sinnathamby offers diagnosis and treatment for men that will address venous disease and restore healthy blood flow in affected areas. He will take the time to discuss your personal concerns, educate you on treatment alternatives and put you at ease about recovery. In many cases, wearing compression socks for a specified period of time after your procedure is all that is necessary for a complete and comfortable recovery.
Men have the same risk factors for varicose veins that women do, but often ignore them until they have begun to affect their quality of life. This is especially true of men with significant leg hair which can camouflage the development of varicose veins until they are large and bulging- or the cause of common symptoms:
- Leg pain or cramping
- Restless leg syndrome at night
- Itching or burning sensations
- Heavy feeling in the legs when standing or moving
Left untreated, these symptoms can develop into leg ulcers and diminish your mobility. Advanced venous disease may also be more difficult to effectively treat with minimally invasive techniques.
