What to Expect When You Visit a Vein Clinic | UVVC

What to expect when you come to a vein clinic for your CVI 

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition involving damaged veins in your legs. For those with CVI, the blood flow from the legs to the rest of the body is inhibited by these damaged veins. Patients with this condition often experience symptoms that include swelling of the legs, varicose veins, discomfort and even pain. To learn about how CVI is dealt with at a vein clinic, keep reading below. 

What can you expect when you seek treatment for CVI at a vein clinic? 

  • Be ready to describe your symptoms — One of the first things a specialist at a vein clinic will want to do is examine your legs for any visible signs of CVI and hear your description of your CVI symptoms. They’ll take note of any symptoms you may have in order to get an accurate picture of what you’re dealing with. 
  • If you haven’t already been diagnosed, you may receive a diagnosis — The point of a diagnosis is to confirm what you may already believe and to document it for official medical purposes so that you can get the correct treatment for your specific condition. 
  • You may be recommended a minimally invasive procedure — We know, procedures can sound scary, but let us assure you that you have virtually nothing to worry about. Our minimally invasive procedures are meant to be quick and relatively painless. They’re done at your vein specialist’s clinic and you can go home the same day, having achieved relief from your chronic venous insufficiency symptoms.
