At our center for varicose and spider vein treatment in Nashville, our patients often ask how getting rid of varicose veins will be worth it. This can be a difficult question to answer. Every patient’s condition and treatment plan is different, and each person is affected differently by varicose veins.
This is because the underlying venous disease that causes varicose and spider veins can range in severity and complications. For many, however, varicose veins can have a distressing impact on their lives. So today we relay a story of one of our patients whose life was changed by having varicose vein removal in Nashville.
Case Study: Karen’s experience with our vein clinic in Nashville
Karen came to us after suffering from varicose veins for many years. She spent much of that time trying to ignore them and hiding them under clothing. A few weeks before she came in for her first visit with our Nashville vein specialist, Dr. Tif Siragusa, she noticed painful swelling in her legs and ankles. She complained of pain so severe that she could no longer walk her dog, go shopping, or meet her friends for weekly tennis. At this point, she knew it was time to seek vein care in Nashville, because it was affecting her ability to do the things she loved—and needed—to do.
At Karen’s consultation with Dr. Siragusa, he evaluated her condition and was able to recommend a minimally invasive procedure known as endovenous laser ablation (EVLT), which is a type of outpatient vein laser surgery. Following her 45-minute procedure, Karen was able to walk right out of our office and return to her life that very same day.
At her follow up visit, Karen said she noticed the benefits right away. Her swelling subsided just a few days later, and her varicose veins were starting to disappear after a few weeks. She said she felt like she had much more energy and confidence, and was even looking forward to shorts season!
