Varicose Vein Albuquerque

It is estimated that over 50% of Americans over the age of 50 suffer with varicose veins,* with women more statistically likely to develop them, most likely due to the effects of pregnancy and hormones on spider veins. Heredity also plays a strong role, as there is a strong tendency to inherit this disease from one or both parents. Many incorrectly consider their varicose veins to be a cosmetic issue that they must just live with – even though they will never, ever improve on their own and are more likely to progress over time. Other patients are bothered enough by the side effects of this medical condition to research their options. So how do you know if it’s time to seek vein treatment?

Albuquerque Deep Vein Thrombosis

People don’t spend much time thinking about their veins. After all, they silently do their work underneath the surface of the skin. However, one medical condition involving the veins, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), is often underdiagnosed and serious, but measures can be taken to decrease risk. The Center for Disease Control estimates that as many as 350,000 – 900,000 Americans develop venous blood clots each year. Let’s take a look at what it is and what warning signs we may see.

Although Fall is full of so many fun activities like apple picking, hayrides, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, it’s also a busy time of year in the healthcare industry as patients scramble to schedule medical treatment before their annual deductible renews! So, along with deciding how many bags of Halloween candy to buy, this time of the year is also the best time to consider your Vein Health! Many people neglect their vein issues until they start to have serious problems, especially if they have not yet met their annual insurance deductible, but there are several reasons this time of year is the perfect time to see Dr. Robert Cutchen for vein treatment!

Albuquerque Spider Vein

Spider veins are small, damaged veins that can appear on the surface of the legs or even the face. They usually are not painful or harmful, but some people may experience an achy or heavy feeling in their legs and choose to treat them in order to look and feel their best. One very commonly asked question is about the recovery time for treating spider veins so that patients may properly plan to have the time off from work or have help with their family and other responsibilities during the recovery. Let’s take a look at the two most common treatments for spider veins and their recovery times.
