Siragusa Vein and Laser Center Releases a New Article about the Relationship Between Problem Veins in Nashville and Swollen Legs & Ankles
June 4, 2016. Hermitage, TN. The experts at Siragusa Vein and Laser Center have released a new article to discuss how vein disease can result in chronic swelling in the legs and ankles. By educating the public about the unexpected and severe consequences that can be attributed to untreated venous disease, the center hopes that individuals considering treatment will seek needed care before symptoms worsen. The vein center in Nashville and a second Hermitage location both provide vein care to patients suffering from the bothersome and often disabling side effects of vein disease, such as pain, skin changes and swelling in the lower extremities.
According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, the Medical Director of the center’s two locations, persistent swelling in the legs and ankles can be a sign of vein disease. “Patients often seek vein disease treatment to find relief from symptoms. Our goal is to treat the underlying venous insufficiency in order to provide lasting and effective relief and to promote healthier veins in Nashville for a long time to come.” The center is home to advanced vein care techniques such as sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy and vein laser in Hermitage and Nashville.

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.
