If you worry that getting a second opinion on your varicose vein treatment is rude or disrespectful—don’t! Any reputable health professional will tell you that consulting with more than one health specialist is a smart thing to do. Here are a few reasons why that is...
Ensuring a proper diagnosis will reduce anxiety levels.
A thorough examination by a qualified vein specialist, complete with duplex ultrasonograph, will help to assure you that the professionals you are dealing with have a thorough grasp of your personal physiological needs.
Sometimes varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem
(but sometimes they are not).
If you do suffer with the symptoms of varicose veins, it is very important to ensure that your vascular health is intact. Undiagnosed chronic venous insufficiency can seriously affect the quality of your life and health. But the truth is that wrong diagnoses do happen, by accident or otherwise. Seeking a second opinion will help to prevent this. And remember, when dealing with your veins, it is important to strike a balance between improving vascular function and preserving venous structure. Especially if the treatment options presented sound very invasive—or very extensive—seriously consider seeking a second opinion.
You want to make sure you know all your varicose vein treatment options.
Varicose vein treatments have come a long way since your grandmother (or even your mother!) had them done. Now there are a number of minimally invasive, minimally painful options available, such as sclerotherapy, thermal ablation and Veneseal. A qualified vein specialist can tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs, and it doesn’t have to involve general anaesthetic or long recovery times.
