Vein disease doesn’t have to affect your life forever. UNM Vein & Cosmetic Center in Albuquerque, NM offers several minimally-invasive treatments for vein diseases such as spider veins, vein thrombosis, varicose veins and more.

What are Vein Diseases?

Vein diseases affect around one in three Americans over the age of 45. Early symptoms often appear minor; however if they are not treated they can become serious and even life threatening. UNM Vein & Cosmetic Center offers varicose and spider vein consultations so you can detect the warning signs early and get treatment before any serious consequences take action. Some vein diseases that people experience include:

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – This occurs when a blood clot forms in a large vein, usually in the lower leg, thigh or pelvis.
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE) – This occurs when part or all of a blood clot breaks off and travels to the lungs.
  • Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) – This refers to other chronic conditions related to or caused by veins that are diseased or abnormal, including: varicose and spider veins, leg pain and swelling, leg ulcers, skin changes, Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), phlebitis and more.
  • Lymphedema – This occurs when there is a blockage of the lymph vessels that drain fluid from tissues throughout the body and allow immune cells to travel where they are needed.

If you suspect you have one of the vein diseases listed above or you are suffering from venous insufficiency in other ways, contact UNM Vein & Cosmetic Center to schedule an appointment and discuss your treatment options.
