Read Joseph’s Experience with Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI):
There are so many success stories of how the best Dallas vein doctors at Precision VIR help patients. Here’s another one we would like to share with you:
Joseph* is a 51-year-old male who was suffering from varicose veins in both legs and a leg ulcer that just wouldn’t heal. His legs felt heavy and tired all the time. He didn’t like the appearance of his legs; they were swollen and the varicose veins were visible and unattractive. The pain he felt even caused him to sometimes take time off from work!
Joseph knew it was time to get his life back. So he made an appointment at Precision VIR and met with one of the best Dallas vein doctors, Dr. Danny Chan. Dr. Chan diagnosed Joseph with Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). This is a condition that develops over months or years from malfunctioning valves in the veins of the legs. Normally functioning valves prevent the backflow of blood down the legs and keep the blood moving towards the heart. However, the leaky valves in a patient with CVI do not hold a seal. Blood pressure then builds up in the lower legs leading to pooling of the blood called venous stasis. This can result in swelling and skin changes, such as discoloration and hardening.
Common signs and symptoms of CVI include, spider veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, aching pain, heaviness, tiredness, swelling, restless legs, skin discoloration, wounds or ulcers that take long time for them to heal. Chronic Venous Insufficiency is highly underdiagnosed and affects approximately 40% of the U.S. population. Women are at higher risk especially after pregnancy. Other risk factors include family history of venous disease, occupation that requires prolonged period of standing or sitting.
To treat Joseph and relieve his aching legs, Dr. Chan performed the ClosureFast™ (previously known as Venefit) procedure. During this treatment, one of the best Dallas vein doctors at Precision VIR inserts an Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood naturally re-routes to healthy veins. Dr. Chan also performed sclerotherapy on Joseph’s legs during a separate session. During this treatment, an irritant, or sclerosant medication, is injected into the veins that the doctor wants to reduce and eventually be reabsorbed by the body. The great thing about both of these treatments is that they are nonsurgical and minimally invasive! Joseph was able to return to his normal activities the following day!
Listen to Joseph’s story, as heard on KLUV Radio in Dallas/Fort Worth:
“The Pain Is Completely Gone!”
Joseph is thrilled with the results! “Both legs feel lighter. They don’t get tired like they used to. Best of all, the pain is gone and the ulcer is completely healed!” Joseph explains. Joseph is happy that he chose one of the best Dallas vein doctors to treat varicose veins and CVI. He has already referred a coworker, telling her that the procedure changed his life. He will continue to tell others to make an appointment at Precision VIR if they suffer from leg pain or non-healing wounds. Joseph says, “Dr. Chan was very compassionate.” He shares that the entire team at Precision VIR was professional and dedicated, taking time to explain the entire process to him.
