If you answered yes to any of those symptoms, you may have a treatable medical condition called Venous Insufficiency, covered by all major health insurance plans. Visit us for an evaluation to see if our minimally invasive treatment can put an end to your discomfort.

What is Venous Insufficiency? 

Venous Insufficiency (VI) is a medical condition where blood isn't properly moving through the veins. In your legs, veins fight against gravity to pump the blood back up to your heart. There are one-way valves inside the veins that open to let blood flow through and then shut to keep blood from flowing backward. If the valves are weak or damaged, blood can back up and pool in your veins. This causes the veins to swell. The backflow of blood fills the veins and stretches the walls of the vein even more. As a result, the veins get bigger, swell, and often get twisted as they fill with larger and larger amounts of fluids trying to return to the heart. These veins over time become varicose veins. Poor blood flow in the veins leads to further vein damage as well as painful and uncomfortable symptoms. If left untreated, varicose veins and VI symptoms may progress and worsen over time. Early diagnosis and treatment can end the discomfort and prevent significant medical complications. Venous disease can progress to complications, including blood clots and skin breakdown.

At a screening, you will meet with a medical provider to discuss your symptoms and concerns. She will evaluate your symptoms, and after looking over your legs, you will receive a medical diagnosis. If it appears your symptoms are venous insufficiency, the provider will order an ultrasound to confirm your condition. The ultrasound report is sent to your health insurance company as we work with them to approve you for treatment. 

How is Venous Insufficiency Treated?

Kansas Surgical Arts is proud to offer Venefit, a minimally invasive treatment that uses a tiny probe and radiofrequency energy to close the vein and treat the venous reflux, with minimal pain. The vein is closed to prevent the blood from moving into it and eventually dissolves, eliminating the need to remove, or strip, it from the body. As an alternative to stripping veins, this procedure involves less pain, less bruising, and less risk of complications. No anesthesia or extensive downtime is required; Venefit patients walk away from their vein procedure and are typically back to their everyday activities within a day.

Who Has Venous Insufficiency?

Varicose veins and VI affect more than 30 million Americans of all ages. Factors like activity, age, and pregnancies may increase the risk of painful varicose veins.It is present in both men and women, and often first presents itself as swelling to the legs. If there's a chance your life is being impacted by this condition, see us for a screening to learn about your best treatment options. 

We look forward to helping you get past this discomfort.
