JoshB VarithenaDr. Jones Successfully Treats Previously Unresolved Vein Condition

Joshua B.: This success story from Michigan Vein Care Specialists exemplifies the importance of selecting a dedicated and knowledgeable Phlebologist.

Before receiving treatment from Dr. Jones, Josh had multiple prior treatments by another facility. “I felt disappointed and frustrated when the first treatment did not meet my expectations Josh said. “Unfortunately, I returned to the same place year after year to receive injections and sometimes surgery. My veins would start reappearing several months later. I was told that these two methods were the best solution for my condition.” Feeling confused and disheartened, Josh decided to look into other options. ” It did not make sense to me. This was the moment I really started to do a lot of my own research through the internet, word of mouth, office calls, and visits. I really wanted to find a doctor who truly cares about me and my condition. I wanted to find someone who was not only an expert in their field but also someone who would listen, ask questions, and provide me with the best care. I was fortunate enough to find Michigan Vein Care Specialists.”

Varicose Veins and Phlebology

Varicose veins affect millions of adults in the United States. People from all walks of life can be susceptible to malfunctioning veins in the legs. Initially the main treatment for varicose veins was “vein stripping” where the problematic vein was removed with the use of multiple incisions. As the field of phlebology (a branch of medicine concerned with the veins) grew, new minimally invasive procedures such as Sclerotherapy, Endovenous Thermal Ablation, and Microphlebectomay were developed. While these treatments have been proven to be efficient, depending on your personal diagnosis of varicose veins, one treatment may be dramatically more effective than another. Since treatments can vary from patient to patient it is crucial that your Phlebologist can not only perform various treatments but also invest themselves into each case of varicose veins as to properly select the appropriate treatment for each patient.

New Varicose Vein Treatment: Varithena TM

After scheduling a consultation with Dr. Jones, Josh was provided with a more individualized treatment not available from his prior phlebologist, a polidocanol injectable foam called Varithena. Varithena does not treat all forms of varicose veins but it certain situations like Josh’s, it can be a highly effective treatment. Varithena is a minimally invasive nonsurgical treatment that typically takes less than an hour to administer. The doctor numbs the injection site and directly injects Varithena into the malfunctioning vein to fill and treat the vein. The foam causes the malfunctioning varicose vein to collapse and blood gets redirected to healthier veins nearby. Unlike Josh’s prior treatments, this individualized treatment received from Dr. Jones successfully treated the varicose vein.

Five Star Team!

Overall, Josh summarizes his experience with Michigan Vein Care Specialists as excellent. “Every staff member was very knowledgable and pleasant to talk to. I really felt like they truly cared about me and they went above and beyond which I am very grateful. I would absolutely refer all of my friends and family to Michigan Vein Care Specialists. Dr. Jones and her staff are a five star team!”
