Types of Vein Disorders

There are several types of vein disorders patients experience in El Paso, TX, such as

Deep Vein Thrombosis happens when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in the body, usually in a patient’s legs.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency occurs when blood cannot flow back up from the leg to the heart.

Superficial Venous Thrombosis (phlebitis) is an inflammatory process that causes a blood clot to form and block one or more veins, usually in the legs.

Varicose Veins is a condition that causes a lot of discomfort in the leg preventing patients from leading the life they deserve. The swelling, itchiness, and heaviness in the leg can stop patients from enjoying life in El Paso, TX.

Spider Veins are small dilated or stretched out blood vessels that form a branching pattern on the thigh and lower leg. Spider veins are progressive and can increase in number and visibility if they remain untreated.
