In this article, we review the vein clinic in Houston based on a few essential factors.
Is the vein clinic led by talented vein doctors?
The vein clinic in Houston is led by Dr. Calvin Jung, one of the leading vein experts in Texas. He’s a nationally recognized vein doctor with specialized training in cosmetic surgery and minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments.
Dr. Jung graduated at the top of his class from the NYU School of Medicine, following which he specialized in vascular imaging and the latest minimally invasive vein treatments. He has performed hundreds of minimally invasive procedures without complications.
Furthermore, Dr. Jung is incredibly compassionate and kind. He ensures your treatment is emotionally and physically comfortable, walking you through every step of the process. Patients often travel from across the country to consult with him.
Is it a state-of-the-art vein clinic?
Our vein clinic in Houston certainly qualifies as a “state-of-the-art vein clinic.” We have undergone an incredibly difficult and voluntary IAC accreditation process to receive formal recognition as a center of excellence.
IAC accreditation is a voluntary process whereby vein clinics and medical centers can provide an objective guarantee that they follow the strictest standards of vein care and safety. We are IAC-accredited in vascular imaging and vein treatments.
As such, you rest assured that we’re a state-of-the-art vein clinic equipped with cutting-edge technologies, such as VNUS, ClariVein, and ClosureFAST.
Do the vein doctors perform vascular imaging tests?
Our vein doctors always perform comprehensive vascular imaging tests to identify and treat chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems.
Chronic venous insufficiency is a circulatory disorder that occurs when your vein valves collapse or malfunction. The vein valves are usually responsible for ensuring effective, one-way blood circulation to the heart against the force of gravity. When your vein valves collapse, blood flows backward and accumulates in the leg veins, eventually leading to vascular dilation, spider veins, and varicose veins.
Treating spider veins and varicose veins without addressing the root cause (vein disease) is a wasted effort — the vein problems will simply return later. That’s why we perform thorough vascular imaging tests to diagnose vein disease and curate an appropriate treatment plan.
During your consultation, the vein doctor will examine your leg veins, discuss your symptoms, and review your medical history. The most common signs and symptoms of vein disease include leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, leg swelling, leg pain, spider veins, and varicose veins. If left untreated, you may eventually experience leg ulcers, deep vein thrombosis, and skin discoloration.
After the initial consultation, the vein doctor will perform a duplex ultrasound, one of the most effective ultrasound scans. The vein doctor will move the handheld ultrasound device on your legs to visualize the direction of blood flow in your leg veins and diagnose chronic venous insufficiency.
Do the vein doctors provide personalized vein care?
Our vein doctors always focus on personalized vein care. Instead of formulating a cookie-cutter vein treatment plan, our vein doctors curate a treatment plan based on several factors — your symptoms, diagnostic results, insurance coverage options, medical history, and allergy risks.
Based on the aforementioned factors, the vein doctor recommends vein treatments that ensure optimal results while suiting your particular requirements. Our considered and comprehensive approach to vein care ensures safe and optimal results with minimal side effects.
Do the vein doctors specialize in minimally invasive vein treatments?
Our vein doctors specialize in the latest minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, venaseal, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.
If you have chronic venous insufficiency, the vein doctor may recommend radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or venaseal. During these procedures, the vein doctor will channel thermal energy (radiofrequency ablation), laser energy (endovenous laser ablation), or medical-grade adhesives (venaseal) into the diseased saphenous vein.
The ablative procedures will destroy the diseased vein, whereas the vein glue will seal its walls. Regardless of the technique, the results are the same — the accumulated blood will reroute into healthier leg veins and restore effective blood circulation to the heart.
After the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor may recommend ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a cosmetic procedure wherein the superficial varicose veins are manually extracted through small incisions on the skin’s surface.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective spider vein treatments — the vein doctor injects sclerosant medicine into the spider veins, turning them into hardened scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body. The spider veins gradually fade away in 2 to 3 weeks.
