In the past, stripping was used to treat varicose veins. When a vein is stripped away, the body doesn’t know it has been removed. It thinks the vein has been damaged, so your body tries to grow the vein back. Unlike organs, such as the gallbladder, which you can remove permanently, veins are part of the body’s connective tissue. This means that they are involved in the healing process.
If you are considering treatment for varicose veins, there is no reason to have vein stripping performed. The alternatives such as RadioFrequency Closure and Ambulatory Phlebectomy are more effective and have lasting results. If you had a vein stripping procedure performed in the past, and the veins have reappeared, make an appointment with the doctors at Reno Vein Clinic by visiting www.RenoVeinClinic.com or call (775) 329-3100.
Dennis Newman, a pioneer in ultrasound technology, founded the Vascular Disease Foundation (VDF) in 1998, when his cousin lost a leg to vascular disease. He learned first-hand that there were few resources available for people suffering from this often silent and debilitating disease.
Since its inception in 1998, the VDF has shown steady growth in its ability to reach out to the general public and medical professionals alike, and continues to provide timely and accurate information about vascular disease.
They site their mission is “…to reduce death and disability from vascular disease and improve vascular health”. Additionally their goals are to increase public awareness and concern for vascular diseases, provide information and educational programs for health care professionals, become a resource for public information, and help patients and families affected by vascular diseases.
