At Vein Memphis, our physicians focus on treating a variety of vein disorders, including varicose veins and spider veins. Dr. Sushma Parekh has helped many patients achieve their vascular health goals by utilizing cutting-edge diagnostic techniques and a variety of treatment methods.
Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
Our Memphis vein clinic focuses on the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Varicose veins can be both unsightly and uncomfortable, producing symptoms such as itchiness and pain. Patients suffering from varicose veins may notice veins that are very dark in appearance that bulge from the surface of the skin, often with a rope-like appearance. Varicose veins commonly appear on the legs, feet, and abdomen.
Spider veins are much smaller in appearance and do not bulge from the surface of the skin. Spider veins are usually a cosmetic concern and commonly appear anywhere on the body. Fortunately, both conditions are highly treatable at our Memphis vein clinic.
We use a variety of methods to diagnosis vascular problems. Dr. Parekh is an expert in imaging technology and uses a variety of techniques to diagnose vascular disorders, including:
- Venous Duplex Ultrasound
- Arterial Duplex Ultrasound
- Carotid Duplex Ultrasound
- ABI Testing
As a radiologist for nearly 20 years, Dr. Parekh uses her extensive training and experience to image veins and pinpoint the source of any problems. Additionally, imaging technology is often utilized to guide the physician during ultrasound-guided treatments.
At Vein Memphis, we use the latest minimally invasive techniques to treat varicose veins and spider veins, including:
- Endovenous Laser Treatment
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
- Spider Vein Treatment
Each of these treatments can be completed in our state-of-the-art facility. Treatments are performed under local anesthesia and patients can usually resume their normal activities soon after treatment. As compared to traditional varicose vein treatments, these treatments offer patients a minimum of discomfort and maximum results.
Our physicians consult with each patient to accurately diagnose his or her condition and explore which treatment will provide the most benefit. Our physicians are committed to answering all of our patient’s questions, including inquiries about cost, recovery times, or any discomfort that may be involved.
