Are Metro Vein Centers doctors board certified?
All of our doctors are board-certified and specialize in vascular health and the treatment of venous diseases.
Is vein treatment covered by insurance?
Metro Vein Centers accepts most insurance and will always work with your plan to maximize your coverage. Most treatments for varicose veins are covered by insurance. In some cases, if treatment is purely cosmetic, then it would require an out-of-pocket cost not covered by insurance. Once you’ve had your initial consultation at our offices, our insurance specialists will let you know what your plan will cover.
What conditions can a Metro Vein Centers doctor help me with?
Our doctors at Metro Vein Centers specialize in diagnosing and treating chronic venous insufficiency (a.k.a. “vein disease”). There are many factors that can lead to common diagnoses like spider veins and varicose veins, including genetics, age, pregnancy, obesity, extended standing, or extended sitting. Most cases can be addressed with minimally invasive procedures, and most patients begin seeing results in as little as a week.
How do I tell the difference between spider veins and varicose veins?
While they both appear similar, spider veins tend to be thinner and relatively painless, while varicose veins are more raised, larger, painful, and problematic. Varicose vein treatments account for a majority of patients who come to our clinics. Affecting 30% of the population, varicose veins are both unpleasant to look at and often a medical concern. While spider veins can be just a cosmetic issue, varicose veins can be indicative of vein disease. Early treatment is your best option for the most effective, long-term results.
What treatments does Metro Vein Centers offer?
Some of the treatments your doctor is likely to discuss with you include Sclerotherapy, Radiofrequency Ablation, Microphlebecomy, excel V+ Laser, Endovenous Laser Ablation, Varithena, and Venaseal.
Are these treatments painful?
Most vein treatments are minimally invasive and done in our office with local anesthetic. While you may experience some discomfort during treatment, it is low pain and there is little to no downtime after the treatment. You'll be able to drive home yourself following most treatments and resume your normal activities the same day.
Are these treatments approved by the FDA?
All of the above treatments have passed FDA approval.
How can I decide which treatments are right for me?
During your consultation with one of our board-certified specialist vein doctors, address all symptoms you’re experiencing; pain, heaviness, aching, and/or cramping in one or both legs are symptoms that could be indicative of a greater health risk, such as blood pooling inside the legs, blood clots, or something else. Our doctors will consult with you in detail on the appropriate treatment options to address and alleviate your symptoms. Most treatments are covered by insurance and are minimally invasive.
