That’s right, Tampa Cardiovascular Associates treats more than just heart conditions. We work with the entire circulatory system including venous insufficiency and vein disease.

We are a full spectrum care cardiovascular facility made up of some of the worlds top physicians in the field. If you are seeking care, we are a wonderful place to start.

Venous disease currently affects over half of the U.S. population and is most common in women and people over fifty. That is a staggering statistic. Of those affected, only 10 to 15 percent of men and 20 to 25 percent of women will show visible symptoms in the form of spider or varicose veins. So it is possible that you have some form of venous issue and may not even realize what it should be attributed to.

Non-visible symptoms include swelling, burning, itching, tingling swelling, and/or a general feeling of heaviness or discomfort in the legs, symptoms that often get progressively worse throughout the day. A number of factors can increase a person’s risk for developing venous disease, including heredity, age, gender, obesity, pregnancy, and whether a person’s job requires them to sit or stand for prolonged periods of time.

The most common forms of vein disease that present in our patients include:

  • Varicose Veins
  • Spider Veins
  • Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
  • May Thurner Syndrome
  • DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

Treatments include:

  • Sclerotherapy
  • Microphlebectomy
  • Chemoablation
  • Radio Frequency Ablation
  • Venaseal Technology

In 2019 there is no reason to simply live with leg pain or the unsightly embarrassing visual of varicose veins. You live in Florida, that is prime shorts and bathing suit territory. Enjoy your home state and all the beauty nature has to offer without feeling like you need to cover up. Call us today and come in for a consultation. Let us see what we can do to help.
