January 17th , 2014. Flower Mound, TX. Flower Mound Vein Specialists publishes a new article describing advances in vein disease treatment, and explaining that they constitute some of the more important advances in medicine in recent decades. According to the Flower Mound-based center, these technological advances should be better known, because they impact over 26 million Americans of both sexes who have varicose veins.
Dr. Robert A. Handley, vascular doctor in Flower Mound says, “These days most vein diseases can be treated in the same comfortable doctors’ offices in which they are diagnosed, using minimally-invasive technologies that require no surgery, no anesthesia, and that allow the patient to walk out of the office after a short treatment session, with their varicose veins removed.” He also points out the vastly greater safety and precision of modern treatment methodologies such as sclerotherapy and endovenous laser treatment, which allow pinpoint accuracy to correct damaged blood vessels without disturbing the surrounding healthy tissues.
These Flower Mound spider vein and varicose vein doctors believe that when the public learns of the incredible advances that have been made in vein treatment techniques, they will become more interested in seeking venous health screenings to determine whether they have vein disease, and will be more likely to seek vein disease treatment in Texas.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins can be unsightly. Above and beyond their cosmetic appearance, however, they can lead to leg cramps, pain and swelling. Largely the result of aging, veins can lose their elasticity and become enlarged and prominent leading to the development of varicose veins.
There is a solution. Several minimally invasive treatments are available to eliminate varicose veins. They include highly specialized techniques such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy. All of these procedures are performed by highly skilled vein doctors on an outpatient basis, without the need for general anesthesia. Patients are often back to work the next day.
