Our Practice

What are typical vein problems?

Millions of American adults suffer from varicose veins, usually as a result of age, heredity, pregnancy, weight gain or physical stress. Their symptoms include the following:

  • Knotty, ropey or bulging leg veins easily visible at the surface of the skin, usually dark red blue or purple in color
  • Legs that itch, burn, ache or throb
  • Legs that tire easily
  • “Restless leg syndrome” that prevents a good night’s sleep

Another common vein problem is spider veins, which typically do not have symptoms of physical discomfort but can be unsightly. They look like tiny roadmap- or cobweb-like lines close to the surface of the skin on the head, neck, face, chest, arms or legs.

What causes varicose veins?

In healthy veins, blood flows smoothly from the limbs back to the heart, pumped along steadily with the help of valves. But sometimes these valves in the leg veins weaken or fail, causing the blood to pool or even reverse rather than flowing – a medical condition called venous reflux. It is this pooling or reversing of blood that results in varicose veins and causes the discomfort associated with the condition.

What can be done to treat vein problems?

Dr. Dietzek and his professional staff are experts at a wide range of vein treatment approaches, including VNUS Closure (Venefit), Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Sclerotherapy, Laser Ablation and Veinwave. With or without physical discomfort, varicose veins and spider veins can be indicative of a more serious circulation problem, so it is a good idea to see a vein doctor if you have any symptoms. If you are a patient in a South Jersey community such as Voorhees, Sewell, Vineland, or Swedesboro, contact us today to schedule your first consultation – and take a giant step toward better health.
