Should You Get A Second Opinion Regarding Treatment For Your Varicose Veins?
With treatments for varicose veins advancing every day, it’s important to seek a second opinion before you make a final decision. We’ll walk you through some of the reasons here.
Venous insufficiencies are some of the most common chronic conditions in the United States. However, because there are so many treatments available for vein-related issues, it’s important to seek a second opinion to ensure you are pursuing the best possible option for your unique circumstance. Here are some reasons why you should speak with Dr. Cunningham before treating your varicose veins.
- Confirming Your Diagnosis. As emerging technologies continue to mature, patients with a chronic venous insufficiency have more treatment options than ever. However, as with any disease or disorder, the appropriate course of treatment will depend on your unique circumstances and the severity of your condition. Since some conditions are more difficult to diagnose, and many doctors prefer specific treatments, it’s important to seek multiple opinions in order to make the best possible decision.
- Expanding Your Options. Many doctors still recommend outdated treatments such as invasive surgical procedures or vein stripping, which have long since been replaced with safer, minimally invasive alternatives.
- Finding the Right Doctor. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Thomas Cunningham. Dr. Cunningham has 20+ years of experience as an Interventional Radiologist and is devoted to the complexities of venous disease. He is highly knowledgeable about the latest and most advanced non-invasive treatment options available for the effective treatment of vein disease.
