Choosing A Vein Doctor

 

Anytime you choose a physician, you want to make the choice that is right for you.

 

You need to...

  • feel comfortable and confident in your choice
  • be able to communicate with your doctor,
  • feel free to express your concerns,
  • and have your questions answered in a safe environment.

 

You also want to choose a doctor with experience. Dr. Sellers has over 30 years of experience as a surgeon and has done numerous vein procedures. His unique experience as a surgeon gives him a thorough understanding of how the human body works and a skill set valued in treating veins.

 

For decades the treatment of varicose veins meant enduring painful procedures with long recoveries and hospital stays. Thankfully with the introduction of portable office based ultrasound technology and endovenous vein ablation techniques (heating the vein form the inside with a catheter) things have drastically changed for those with vein problems. The old standard procedure of vein stripping has been replaced with minimally invasive procedures done under local anesthesia right in Dr. Sellers office at McClellan Park Medical Mall. There is no need for long hospital stays, recovery times are short, and success rates are high.

 

If you are ready to seek treatment for your vein problems, consider a consultation with Dr. Lewis E. Sellers. At McClellan Park Medical Mall you'll be in the experienced hands of a dependable physician in a safe and comfortable environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What results can you expect?

Technological advances in evaluation and treatment methods allow spider and varicose veins to be treated more effectively and safely than ever before.

 

Nevertheless, the success of any medical treatment depends on two things: careful assessment of the underlying problem, and the skill and experience of the phlebologist (vein doctor) providing the treatment. The most important cause of vein disease is heredity; thus, even successful medical treatment does not eliminate the genetic disposition that may cause other veins to fail in the future.

It is important to discuss these or any other concerns with Dr. Sellers when considering your procedures.

 

Complications of Medical Varicose Vein Treatments

Generally speaking, complications related to varicose vein treatment are rare.

 

Serious complications, such as life threatening allergy and/or blood clots, may occur with any medical treatment for large varicose veins. Infection may occur with any surgery, and skin burns may occur with any form of laser/light source treatment or sclerotherapy. Minor complications may include temporary discomfort, bruising, swelling, discoloration, or reddish blushing of the skin following treatment. To understand more about the specific expectations of any varicose vein treatment, it is important to discuss these or any other concerns with Dr. Sellers.

 

Although these risks are small, no procedure is risk free.
