Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Anchorage
Our board-certified providers offer a wide range of innovative, customized treatment options for chronic venous insufficiency. Your visit will start with a complete health history. You are encouraged to speak with your vein specialist about your symptoms, including leg pain, swelling, cramping, itching, varicose veins, spider veins, restless leg syndrome, ulcers, potential blood clots, etc.
Your provider will thoroughly examine your legs. If recommended, you may undergo a vascular ultrasound. Vascular ultrasound uses sound waves to "see" the inside of your legs to evaluate the movement and speed of the blood through the vessels and may detect any abnormalities or blockages.
Once the evaluation is complete, your provider may present a treatment plan to address your vein problems.
Symptoms of vein disease
When the tiny valves in your leg veins fail to circulate blood back to the heart, the result can be leg pain, itching, swelling, cramping, varicose veins, spider veins, feelings of heaviness, skin discoloration, or ulcers that are difficult to heal. Known as venous insufficiency, the vein condition is progressive, meaning it will get worse without treatment.
If you have any one or more of these vein problems, our experienced vein specialists
