Siragusa Vein & Laser Center Releases an Interview with a Nashville Vascular Doctor about Swollen Legs & Ankles
January 15, 2017. Nashville, TN. The experts at Siragusa Vein and Laser Center have released an interview with Dr. Tif Siragusa, a premier Nashville vascular doctor, about swollen legs and ankles. According to the vein clinic in Nashville, one of the most common complaints patients present with is swelling in the lower extremities. As the article explains, swelling is caused by poor blood circulation in the leg veins that builds up a backward pressure within in the vein and irritates the surrounding bodily tissues, leading to fluid accumulation in the legs and feet.
According to Dr. Siragusa, the center’s Medical Director, “Vein disease often underlies chronic swelling of the legs and ankles. Although age and genetics often play a role in developing vein disease, which can lead to swollen legs and ankles, lifestyle factors such as lack of exercise, obesity, and smoking can increase one’s risk for vein problems.” The center experts encourage area residents to seek vein care in Nashville at the first moment vein disease is suspected.
By releasing this article, it is the goal of Dr. Siragusa and his team to educate the public about the consequences of leaving vein disease untreated. For more information, please visit www.nashvilleveinandlaser.com
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.
