Vein Clinic

vein clinicDid you know that more than 80 million Americans suffer from vein problems such as spider veins, varicose veins, and deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in deep veins)? If left untreated, vein problems can lead to more serious health concerns.

For some, spider veins and varicose veins are simply unsightly and embarrassing. For others, they can cause pain, fatigue, itching, burning, throbbing and swelling in the legs.

Deep vein thrombosis is a potentially life-threatening medical condition that could result in a stroke, pulmonary embolism, heart attack or even death.

Endovenous Ablation for Varicose Veins

Whether you have cosmetic or medical concerns with the veins in your legs, Dr. Singh can help. He specializes in endovenous ablation, a minimally-invasive, office-based treatment for varicose veins.

Using ultrasound guidance, Dr. Singh inserts a small laser fiber or radiofrequency electrode through a needle into the varicose vein. Heat generated by radiofrequency or laser energy seals off the faulty veins and re-routes blood flow to nearby healthy veins. The procedure only takes a few minutes and results are immediate. Endovenous ablation is safe and practically painless, with very little risk of complications and almost no downtime required. You can resume your normal activities immediately following treatment!

Treatment for Deep Vein Thrombosis

Treatment for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) depends on the severity of your condition. Deep vein thrombosis may be treated with blood thinning medications called anticoagulants or clot busting medications termed thrombolytic therapy. In some cases, clots may need to be removed with a catheter or surgery.

People who cannot tolerate or do not respond to anticoagulation may have a permanent filter inserted in their vein. The filter prevents large embolisms from entering the lungs, but it does not stop blood clots from developing. The doctor may also prescribe compression stockings to help prevent DVT. At Marion Heart Associates and Marion Internal Medicine, we can provide you with specially fit compression stockings right in our office so you do not have to make another trip elsewhere to pick them up.

If you have vein problems, see Dr. Prem Singh at our East Ocala Vein Clinic or West Ocala Vein Clinic, or request an appointment online.
