Information on Vein Problems

While the heart is the most active and important part of the circulatory system, veins also play an important role in blood circulation. Veins contribute to healthy circulation by keeping blood flowing in the right direction. Veins contain special one-way valves that prevent blood from flowing backwards or stagnating due to the force of gravity, which is crucial in areas like the legs where blood must fight gravity to return to the heart and lungs.

When the valves in your veins are not performing this function adequately, serious and painful vein problems arise:

  • Varicose Veins: This is a common vein problem, especially among women, and can be very painful. Varicose veins affect half of all women and are caused by genetic factors along with pregnancy, menopause, aging, and standing for long periods of time. Vein specialist in Oklahoma City, Dr. Pedulla performs several highly effective, minimally invasive procedures to correct varicose veins permanently.
  • Reticular Veins: These are enlarged blue or green veins beneath the skin’s surface that can be unsightly or embarrassing. Reticular veins are largely hereditary and do not typically lead to serious medical problems. Dr. Pedulla’s advanced techniques are proven to reduce the appearance of reticular veins for an excellent cosmetic improvement.
  • Spider Veins: A less serious form of varicose veins, spider veins typically appear as thin, blue vessels near the surface of the skin. Dr. Pedulla is specially trained to perform sclerotherapy to cure spider veins.
  • Perforator Veins: Perforator veins penetrate, or perforate, the muscle tissue of the legs. While not usually visible from the outside, problematic perforator veins are definitely noticeable, causing significant pain and discomfort. Dr. Pedulla uses the latest in technology and procedures to fix damaged perforator veins with minimal pain and almost no scarring.
  • Deep Vein Problems: Fixing problematic veins deep within the legs or other body regions is very difficult for vein surgeons to accomplish without serious scarring and health risks. However, Dr. Pedulla’s decades of experience, including advanced cardiology and vein treatment, enable him to fix deep vein problems without invasive surgery.
