Q: Why do people keep telling me that my varicose veins are cosmetic problem when I have pain and swelling? I don’t really care what my legs look like anymore – I don’t want them to hurt anymore!

A: For years, even medical professionals told their patients that varicose veins were a cosmetic issue. According to the American College of Phlebology, more than 25 million Americans suffer from some sort of venous disorder. Spider veins and varicose veins are the most common vein problems, but more serious conditions can develop so it’s best to see an expert in diagnosing and treating venous diseases. You can’t always see vein disease on the surface. The Vein Guys of Wisconsin have experts on staff that use dedicated imaging techniques to confirm vein disease. We also encourage you to visit http://www.phlebology.org/patient-information/online-vein-self-assessment-vein to help you get started in learning more about varicose veins and other vein diseases.

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (AKA OBAMACARE)

Here are few facts about The Affordable Care Act:

52 Week Savings Plan

One of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions is to save money. You may have seen one interesting way on social media or internet sites like Pinterest – each week you save that week’s number in the year, in dollars in a jar in your kitchen. For example, week one, you put $1 in the jar. Week 2, you save $2 in the jar. Week 3, $3 and so on, until at the end of the year, after you’ve crammed $52 in the jar for week 52, you’ve saved $1,378! Great idea! But here’s how The Vein Guys® recommend you save the same amount. Go big! Start with $52 your first week. Why? Momentum – that’s why! You’re excited to do this so why not capitalize on that energy. Next week, put away $51. Week 3 – $50. That way, you’ll see the balance add up quicker and ride that wave of savings all through 2016!

SOMETHING CAN BE DONE!

As we look forward to another great year, sometimes a bit of reflection is good for the soul. We’ve received some great questions at Real Talk with The Vein Guys®. The number one question asked wasn’t really a question at all. Over and over again patients would say, “Well, I talked to my doctor and I know it’s my veins but…” But nothing! Something CAN be done. No matter what stage of vein disease you might be in, The Vein Guys® have a solution to help. With the proper diagnosis, vein disease, varicose veins and spider veins are legitimate medical problems that deserve one of the revolutionary treatments offered by the experts at The Vein Guys®.
