If I get Varicose Vein Treament Will My Blood Circulate Normally?
Dr. Warren has been in private practice doing phlebology since 1999. Phlebology is the branch of medicine that deals with the care of vein disease. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology and is located in Palm Desert between El Paseo and Deep Canyon on the south side of Highway 111. She has performed thousands of minimally invasive vein procedures and has been a trainer of other physicians in all aspects of these procedures.
The backward flow of blood in the larger superficial veins actually interferes with the normal venous return. Removal of these diseased veins through stripping, lasers or sclerotherapy will improve the circulation of the blood back to the heart. The numerous normal veins with normal valves function better if blood is not shunted to the abnormal veins where the blood is almost stagnant due to insufficient valve function.
