Phlebology involves the diagnosis and treatment of disorders including spider veins, varicose veins, leg ulcers, and other venous problems. A phlebologist is a specialist vein doctor who can perform varicose vein removal, and who can also provide treatment for restless leg syndrome, leg ulcers, leg swelling, leg pain and other problems related to venous disorder.
Removal of varicose veins improves circulation, which can alleviate associated symptoms of tiredness, swelling, pain and heaviness in the limb. Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder with symptoms of uncontrollable urges for leg movement, and can include itching, burning and tingling sensations. Recent studies indicate that treating venous insufficiency can relieve symptoms of RLS, with 98% of patients experiencing relief from RLS symptoms simply by treating their venous insufficiency.
Additionally, untreated venous disease is the main cause of over 80% of all leg ulcers. Skin ulcers develop when an area of skin breaks down, exposing underlying tissue to air and bacteria.
When it’s time to seek treatment, our expert vein specialists can effectively diagnose and treat a wide range of venous disorders such as restless leg syndrome or skin ulcers, and can perform varicose vein removal using the latest endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy techniques. There’s minimal discomfort, and treatment is virtually painless, and with these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
