best winston salem vein specialists

NC vascular doctors want you to know that if you have restless leg syndrome, vein disease treatment may help relieve your symptoms.

What do the residents of Winston-Salem need to know about restless leg syndrome?

Up to 10% of the US population may suffer from restless leg syndrome, or RLS. Most are middle aged or older, but RLS can affect anyone, even children. RLS results in an uncontrollable urge to move the legs, particularly at night.

Adults with RLS may also have venous reflux, or venous insufficiency, which is a form of vein disease. Varicose veins are a common symptom of vein disease, and both varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency can cause the symptoms of RLS. When people with both RLS and venous insufficiency get treatment for their varicose veins, their symptoms are either reduced or eliminated.

How can a varicose vein treatment center in NC help me with restless leg syndrome?

One of the best vein doctors in NC, Dr. Ray Workman of Novant Health Vein Specialists, can provide you with a thorough venous health evaluation and can detect whether you have venous insufficiency and/or RLS. If you have both, he will work with you to select the best treatment option for your situation. Treatment options include sclerotherapy, laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation, and the best choice for you will depend on a number of factors, including the location and extent of your vein disease, your risk factors (such as obesity or advanced age) and your personal preferences for the treatment modality.

All the treatments can be performed on an out-patient basis at our Winston-Salem vein clinic, with no need to go to a hospital or spend the night. You’ll be up and on your way the very same day, with a follow-up appointment in a few weeks to check on your progress.
