Am I A Candidate?
It is estimated that more than 80 million Americans suffer from some form of venous disease. Up to 55% of women may be affected in their lifetime (American College of Phlebology, 2014). Heredity is the main reason that venous disease develops, so if you have parents or grandparents who have suffered from venous disease symptoms, chances are that you may develop the disease as well.
Some people seek help for cosmetic reasons to look and feel better. Some people seek help to get relief from debilitating symptoms such as leg aching, pain, heaviness, fatigue, ankle swelling, muscle cramping, restlessness, itching, and burning. A visit to one of our vein specialists will help to best answer your questions. Dr. Johnson can evaluate your condition, perform a diagnostic ultrasound examination, and discuss the treatment options available to you. To gain the best results, treatment needs to be tailored to your individual needs based on your physical examination and medical history.
