Siragusa Vein & Laser Center Releases a New Article about Myths Surrounding Swollen Legs & Ankles and The Need for Vein Care in Nashville
April 4th, 2015. Nashville, TN. Siragusa Vein & Laser Center has published a new article on some of the more common myths surrounding swollen legs and ankles. According to the vein clinic in Nashville, many people rely on the opinions of friends and relatives when they have a medical concern. Without consulting medical experts, such as a Nashville vascular doctor, individuals might not be getting the care they need and potentially doing harm. By putting out this article, the center hopes that area residents will better appreciate the need for expert vein care in Nashville.
According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, the Medical Director of the center, swollen legs and ankles are often associated with vein disease. “Vein disease is a progressive disease that if left untreated or inadequately cared for will likely become more severe over time. Venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis and other conditions should be treated promptly.” Dr. Siragusa and his team specialize in minimally invasive techniques for reducing vein disease symptoms, including swelling in the legs and feet.

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.
