Venous Insufficiency Diagnosis & Treatment

Venous insufficiency is a condition that occurs when the veins in the legs fail to properly transport blood back to the heart. This can lead to a range of symptoms and discomfort.

Diagnosing and treating venous insufficiency begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and lifestyle. At Johns Creek Vein, we understand that each patient is unique; our team of experienced vascular specialists take the time to listen to you and provide personalized recommendations for treatment.

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for venous insufficiency may include:

  • Duplex Ultrasound: A type of vascular ultrasound procedure to assess blood flow and the structure of leg veins. The term “duplex” refers to the fact that two modes of ultrasound are used — Doppler and B-mode. The B-mode transducer (like a microphone) obtains an image of the vessel being studied. The Doppler probe within the transducer evaluates the velocity and direction of blood flow in the vessel.

Venous insufficiency treatment may include lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise, elevating the legs, and keeping the legs uncrossed when sitting. Other interventions we provide include:

  • Compression stockings: These specially designed stockings apply gentle pressure to the legs, improving blood flow and reducing swelling. They are available in various compression levels and can be easily worn throughout the day.

In serious cases or when conservative treatments fail to provide relief, more advanced interventions may be required. It is important to consult with a vein specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on your specific condition and symptoms. With timely intervention and the right treatment approach, venous insufficiency can be effectively managed, allowing you to regain comfort and improve your quality of life.
