World-class Venous Insufficiency Treatment In New Jersey

Understanding The Intricacies Of Venous Insufficiency Treatment

venous insufficiency treatment

This refers to a vein condition where the individual’s legs have difficulty in returning the blood back to the heart. It occurs when the valves in the veins become weakened or damaged, leading to blood pooling in the legs.

Venous insufficiency presents with distinct signs, including leg swelling, feelings of leg aching or heaviness, skin discolouration, leg cramps, the presence of varicose veins, and the development of leg ulcers. These symptoms collectively indicate the manifestation of venous insufficiency and necessitate proper evaluation and treatment.

To diagnose venous insufficiency, a physical exam, medical history review, and Doppler ultrasound may be conducted. The ultrasound assesses blood flow and vein functionality, aiding in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Yes, venous insufficiency can be treated. Treatment options include lifestyle modifications (e.g., exercise, weight management), wearing compression stockings, elevating the legs, and, in more severe cases, minimally invasive procedures like endovenous ablation or sclerotherapy. Your search for venous insufficiency treatment near me ends with Advanced Medical Group!

If you experience persistent leg swelling, pain, or skin changes, it’s important to consult a healthcare professional. They can evaluate your condition, provide an accurate diagnosis, and recommend tailored treatment options.

Venous Insufficiency Treatment Procedures


Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting a specialized solution into the affected veins. This solution causes the veins to shrink, collapse, and eventually be reabsorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is particularly effective for treating smaller varicose veins and spider veins associated with venous insufficiency.

Endovenous Ablation

Endovenous ablation is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat venous insufficiency. It utilizes heat energy or laser technology to close off and seal the affected veins. By doing so, it redirects blood flow to healthier veins, relieving symptoms and improving overall venous function.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a surgical technique used to remove larger varicose veins through tiny incisions in the skin. Performed as an outpatient procedure, the treatment ensures a speedy recovery period and minimal scarring due to its non-invasive nature. Ambulatory phlebectomy targets visible varicose veins, eliminating them and improving symptoms.

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy is a commonly employed treatment for venous insufficiency. It involves wearing specially designed compression stockings that exert pressure on the legs, promoting blood flow and reducing swelling. The compression helps to support the veins and prevent blood from pooling, improving venous circulation.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Treatment

This approach involves the administration of anticoagulant medications that will help dissolve any existing blood clots in the area. This procedure is performed when the doctors diagnose an underlying DVT condition. Managing DVT is crucial in preventing complications. At Advanced Medical Group, we perform this procedure with utmost precision.

Lifestyle Modifications

In addition to specific treatments, making lifestyle changes can greatly support the management of venous insufficiency. Regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, elevating the legs when resting, avoiding prolonged periods of sitting or standing, and wearing compression stockings as advised by a healthcare professional are all beneficial in improving venous circulation and managing symptoms.

While some patients may encounter mild discomfort or a sense of pressure during the procedure, the resulting pain is usually minimally invasive and easily manageable. Our venous insufficiency doctors in New Jersey can seamlessly walk you through this procedure.

Recovery time varies depending on the treatment approach used. Minimally invasive treatments often allow for a quicker recovery, typically with patients returning to normal activities within a few days. The healthcare provider that helps you with the venous insufficiency treatment in NJ will provide specific post-treatment instructions for optimal recovery.

Although rare, potential risks like infection, bruising, or allergic reactions exist in venous insufficiency treatment. Your healthcare provider will discuss and address these concerns before treatment, prioritizing your comfort and safety.

The effectiveness of venous insufficiency treatment varies based on factors such as the condition’s severity and the chosen therapeutic method. Although many people experience lasting relief after treatment, it is vital to attend regular follow-up appointments to ensure consistent monitoring and effective control of the condition.

While treatment is successful in effectively addressing venous insufficiency and providing relief from its symptoms, it is important to recognize that ongoing management may be necessary. By following recommended treatment plans and adopting lifestyle adjustments, individuals can significantly enhance their quality of life and gain better control over the impact of the condition.
