We established our Oregon vein center with the mission of providing state-of-the-art, specialized vein treatment to patients throughout Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. To support that mission, we’re launching a blog where we’ll write about innovative vein disorder treatments and the latest research involving the management of venous diseases.
Vein disorders are among the most common ailments afflicting both men and women. The National Institutes of Health estimates that 60% of all adults suffer from some form of vein disorder. Most people are familiar with varicose veins and spider veins, 2 of the most common vascular issues.
But many people aren’t aware that an issue such as varicose veins can lead to serious complications such as the development of sores or skin ulcers, an inflamed vein, and ultimately blood clots in deep veins. That condition, called deep vein thrombosis, can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated immediately.
We look forward to offering more insights into vein disorders and their treatment and encourage you to routinely check this blog for the latest updates.
