August 8, 2015. Nashville, TN. Siragusa Vein and Laser Center have released an article to promote minimally invasive venous procedures as a safe and effective option for older patients with varicose veins. Complications from surgery and undergoing anesthesia are a worry for the aging population. The risk for developing vein disease also becomes greater with age, as more than half of American men and women age 50 and over have developed some form of vein disease. According to the vein center in Nashville, modern venous surgeries are appropriate for most individuals, regardless of age.
Dr. Tif Siragusa is a renowned Nashville vascular doctor and the medical director of the center’s two locations—Nashville and Hermitage. According to Dr. Siragusa, “The minimally invasive nature of Nashville vein treatment makes vein removal in Nashville much safer and easier than ever before for older patients.” These types of treatments use only local anesthetics and miniscule incisions, which greatly decrease risks for post-operative infection and dangerous side effects of general anesthesia common with traditional surgery.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
At the very least, varicose veins have an unpleasant appearance. However, they can also lead to other serious consequences such as painful, swollen legs. Over half of all Americans have some form of vein disease. Aging is probably the biggest offender in terms of risk factors for the development of varicose veins.
Is it an overgeneralization to say that we all want to look younger and healthier? Certainly, many of us do. With modern advances in technology, there are multiple treatment options available for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy are but a few. Now you see them—now, you don’t. In the hands of leading vein doctors, it is often just that simple.
