Lеg Hеаvіnеѕѕ


What causes Lеg hеаvіnеѕѕ?

Lеg hеаvіnеѕѕ can be due to multiple different causes, but the most common cause is chronic venous insufficiency.

Leg heaviness due to vein disease tends to be worse with prolonged sitting or standing. Exercise usually improves symptoms because of the improved circulation with activity.  If you have noticed leg heaviness at the end of the day, particularly if you have visible spider and varicose veins on the surface of the skin, consider seeing a qualified vein doctor to be evaluated for venous insufficiency.   An early diagnosis can lead to improved results and healthier living.

Treatment of leg heaviness is directed at treating the underlying problem, such as correcting medication regimens, treating heart disease, reducing sodium intake and treating venous insufficiency. Depending on the diagnosis, leg elevation, compression stockings and diuretics may also be indicated as efficacious treatment options.

Treatments for leg heaviness related to venous insufficiency are minimally invasive, safe and highly effective.

Treatments for leg heaviness

RFA

The standard of today’s treatments for venous insufficiency, RF ablation involves a small catheter that delivers heat energy to close down the abnormal vein. The procedure is minimally-invasive and can be done directly in the office.


Venaseal

VenaSeal™ is a procedure that uses a special glue to close off damaged veins.  The procedure is safe and as effective as RF ablation.

 


Clarivein

Combines two techniques to treat underlying venous insufficiency.  A small catheter is used to both chemically and mechanically treat the diseased vein.  Select veins are good targets for treatment.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is not stripping.  Instead these brief procedures are offered only by skilled clinics and remain one of the best options for bulging varicose veins. Done under local anesthesia in an office setting, the vein is removed in small sections through tiny incisions.
