What to Expect When You Visit a Vein Clinic
- Posted on: Sep 21 2014
The purpose of a vein clinic like the Vein and Vascular Institute is to recognize and treat conditions involving the veins. When you visit a vein clinic, you can expect to have an exam, receive one or more diagnoses and prepare a treatment plan.
Evaluating Your Condition
At your initial visit to our clinic, we will begin by performing a thorough physical examination, and we will ask you questions about your medical history and symptoms. Depending on the information we collect, we may also order diagnostic tests. Tests commonly ordered to diagnose vein problems include magnetic resonance angiography, a CT angiogram or an ultrasound. Based on the results of our exam and any tests we conduct, we will make a diagnosis. This process may require more than one visit to the clinic.
Preparing a Treatment Plan
After we have a solid diagnosis, we can begin preparing a treatment plan. Depending on your condition, vein treatment options may include:
- Hand Vein Treatment
- Laser Ablation
- Endovenous Laser Therapy
- Venefit Procedure
- Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation
- Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
As we develop your individualized treatment plan, we will explain each of your treatment options thoroughly. After learning about the pros and cons of each available treatment, as well as our recommendation, you can make an informed decision. Next, we will schedule the treatments you have chosen. Depending on the treatment options you choose, as well as the severity of your condition, you may need to return to the clinic multiple times in order to complete your program.
Throughout treatment, we will periodically evaluate your progress and make any necessary changes to your program. When your program is complete, we will assess your condition in order to determine if any additional treatment is required.
