For me, being a doctor is really a privilege. I go to work each day in my Chicago area clinic devoted to treating varicose and spider veins on the legs, looking forward to seeing patients and helping them have legs that feel and look better. I have to admit it, but I actually have fun doing what I do!
Pregnancy causes many changes within a woman’s body. Hormones rapidly change, as does the overall chemistry of a woman’s body. While most changes are beneficial to the baby growing inside of a woman, some of them may cause undesirable side effects. The leg veins are an area where different undesirable symptoms may manifest themselves.
Millions of men and women have spider and varicose veins. First introduced more than 100 years ago, sclerotherapy is a popular medical technique that permanently removes these enlarged veins, which are typically found in the legs. The procedure is also performed to treat smaller varicose veins that can appear after surgery.
I know, it’s been a while since my last post. Mostly for good reasons…things, thank G-d, have been busy at Rosen Vein Care. Sometimes it’s tough to put words to page due to lack of time and opportunity. Other times, like now, it’s tough because the words don’t come easily.
