Venous surgery is surgery of the veins. Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart. However, some individuals have weak or damaged valves causing health issues. These individuals may suffer from varicose veins, pain, swollen limbs, leg heaviness and fatigue, skin changes and ulcers.
Individuals are more at risk for venous insufficiencies if they are older, female, have obesity, don’t exercise, or have a family history of varicose veins. Also, more causes include prior damages to your leg, high blood pressure, and smoking. They can also be more common in pregnancy.
Symptoms of venous insufficiencies include swelling in your legs or ankles, tight feeling in your calves or itchy, painful legs, pain when walking, and brown-colored skin, often near the ankles. Schedule an appointment with us if you are experiencing these symptoms and would like to discuss venous surgery options. Source.
