How to Get Superior Results when Treating Leg Veins and Other Vein Problems

Written by Dallas Vein Specialists on June 30, 2016

In many cases, the formation of varicose veins (enlarged veins that most commonly appear in the legs) and other vein problems is unavoidable. Fortunately, varicose veins are treatable. In this blog post, Dr. Lonnie Whiddon of Dallas Vein Specialists outlines several factors that can enhance the success of your treatment results.


Leg vein problems, such as varicose veins, can develop for reasons beyond our control. Individuals with a family history of vein problems are at an increased risk for developing vein problems themselves. To put it in perspective, a person whose mother and father both have varicose veins has an 89 percent chance of developing varicose veins themselves. Additionally, individuals with inherited vein problems are at an increased risk of developing more serious symptoms of vein problems as they age. Because of this, it is imperative that patients have a good understanding of their vein health. Patients should be proactive in treating their vein problems so as to prevent them from becoming a serious problem. If you have a family history of vein problems, visit a qualified vein specialist at least once a year.


When it comes to vein treatment, there is no substitution for experience. An experienced vein specialist is one who has years of experience diagnosing and treating an array of vein conditions. A trained and experienced vein doctor has the ability to recognize vein problems at all stages, diagnose them properly and design a proper treatment plan. Keep in mind that the plan of treatment may involve different approaches over time, depending on the evolution of the condition. Your vein doctor should also be knowledgeable and trained in the most advanced vein treatments, especially minimally invasive procedures that provide successful results with the least amount of downtime and discomfort.

When you choose a vein specialist who is committed to helping you get the right treatment for your specific condition, you often see better results. You want to make sure that the specialist you choose answers all your questions, discusses your treatment options in detail with you and is recognized for both his track record and patient care.
