Varicose veins are more than just unsightly. Many forms of varicose veins can also be quite painful. In addition, not all varicose veins form at the surface. If your varicose veins are causing you pain, the surgical option may reduce your discomfort and make your life better. Connecting with a caring surgeon can make the experience of varicose vein surgery much less worrisome.
When Your Veins Hurt
A swollen, lumpy varicose vein may be unsightly but it may not hurt. Other forms of vein pooling can form in the hip or groin and cause a great deal of pain. Some sufferers find that their veins only hurt at the end of the day, while others experience a sense of heaviness or tiredness due to their varicose veins. Your vein doc at Metro Vein Centers can help you assess the level of your pain and the best treatment options to help you be comfortable.
Your vein doc can explain to you the best option for your vein pain. Luckily, there are treatment options beyond the most invasive, advanced endoscopic vein surgery. Your physician can guide you through other treatments that you can undergo to reduce your vein pain.
Your surgeon and other professionals at Metro Vein Centers can help you both prepare for the chosen treatment and help you take care of your legs to prevent additional pain after your surgery. Simple actions such as moving every 30 minutes, elevating your legs or wearing compression stockings can help your veins work more effectively and be less likely to bulge and pool.

Not Just Cosmetic
I’s often thought that vein surgery or therapy is a cosmetic procedure and therefore not covered by insurance. However, if your vein condition is causing you pain or putting you at risk for developing clots, dermatitis or other advanced conditions, insurance coverage may be available. You don’t need to suffer with vein pain without some help. Contact your doctor to see if you can get a referral and insurance support.
