WANT YOUR VEINS TREATED?

Modern Vein treatments are done in the office, minimally invasive, no vein strippings, no painful saline injections. Multiple therapies are customized to your needs.

DON'T WORRY, COME IN

Start with a free vein screening where we just talk to you, imagine that? We show you a video of some treatment options, tell you if you will need an ultrasound scan for diagnosis, vein treatment mapping. and possible hoops to jump if you are trying to meet insurance guidelines and restrictions…..or schedule you for cosmetic injections, if that is all you need.

We will teach you about compression stockings and socks that are medically good for your circulation and van prevent Blood clots that are genetically influenced and by prolonged travelling, sitting, standing, well just life! We carry compression garments in the office and we are all registered “hose fitters,” yes they should be fitted. If we don’t have your size, we order with a credit card or cash or flexible spending and ship to your home.

So stop worrying. We are great with verbal anesthesia with our MD, RN, MA staff to hold hands, order Valium if necessary for medical treatments, topical anesthetics, local anesthetics, or a cute squeeze ball for good measure. We listen intently to your needs.

There are new FDA treatments that have just come out and we are excited to teach you about that too- a new Glue called VenaSeal that requires no compression stockings after treatment- if you qualify by ultrasound scan and our MD diagnosis.

Call us today 480-775-8460 and schedule your first step to healthy legs! Sincerely Submitted, Terri Morrison RN, BS Co-Founder MorrisonVein Institute

 

 

 

 

 

Vein Disease equals varicose and spider veins

Hereditary risk factors for vein disease such as family history of veins combined with age, sedentary lifestyle, prolonged sitting or standing, and increased BMI, cigarette smoking, and pregnancies, all add to our chances of varicose and spider veins. The venous circulation is supposed to go up the legs back to the heart as the diagram above depicts. But with reflux, venous disease called venous insufficiency, the blood goes down the wrong way causing blood pooling and a cascade of events over time.

50% of women by the time they are 50 years old can have vein disease and 25% of men and this goes up 10% a decade. So with early intervention of easy in office vein venous ultrasound scan for a diagnosis and vein map, vein treatments there is a way ti minimize our disease process. Combine this with exercise, leg elevation, calf muscle pump exercises and good medical compression socks or stockings, we can minimize detrimental effects of varicose veins and their symptoms and complications: skin changes, restless legs, leg swelling, cramping, heaviness, feet ” burning” sensation, vulvar varicosities, deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, itching, and of course surface veins.

Come talk to us, see an informational video, get measured for compression socks and plan for  healthier legs. 480-775-8460  Tempe, Scottsdale  info@morrisonvein.com for questions. We look forward to seeing you.

 

Treat Varicose Veins in Our Office!

Veins are not just cosmetic
Veins are not just cosmetic

Varicose Veins need treatment

Varicose veins can now be treated with in-office procedures, so no stripping is needed. In-office procedures can be done for larger surface veins after the venous disease is treated at the source, first with ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy or Endovenous laser or radio-frequency ablation techniques. After all medical procedures are completed, spider veins can be treated. Come to Morrison Vein Institute for a consult and learn about all the new techniques to improve your circulation as well as how we treat your veins for the best results. http://www.morrisonvein.com

Why Treat Your Veins Now?!?!

Sclerotherapy in the Summer? No way, right? It’s 110 in Arizona, support hose are hot and I would be uncomfortable. Wait!!! I’m already uncomfortable. I was diagnosed with venous reflux, aka vein disease, 5 years ago. I have had several procedures done and need annual maintenance with USGS injections. I also wanted surface vein injections but could never “find the time”. So, it’s June and you ask why am I uncomfortable? My legs feel worse in the summer due to the heat which dilates the veins. They feel heavy, achy and I now have severe cramping that wakes me up several times a night. So should I just suffer until summers over? Oh wait, it’s hot until October. I decided to have the injections and I couldn’t be happier. I love hiking and the great outdoors, but I don’t do any of that in the summer anyway. I am indoors, in air conditioning and can still swim whenever I want (without the stockings on). My symptoms have gone away, my legs already feel better and I will be out of the hose in 9 more days. This was so much easier than I thought.

No, I would prefer to not wear stockings at the gym when working out, and it’s a bit warm getting in and out of the car……..but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Feeling better right away and taking care of myself is much easier than suffering through a long hot summer and fall waiting to “find the right time”. So what are you waiting for?

Saline vs. Polidocanol for Vein Injections

Dr Morrison states, “An article appeared in one of our scientific journals recently comparing Polidocanol (the most commonly-used sclerotherapy agent here at the Morrison Vein Institute) with hypertonic saline for spider and surface veins. The conclusion was that while both medications are effective, there are significantly fewer ulcerations (skin sores) that occur with Polidocanol than with saline – something the Morrison Vein Institute has been aware of for 15 years.”
