On his most recent appearance on Studio 5, Dr. Joseph Jensen talks about varicose veins. If you are suffering with varicose and spider veins, you better brush up on your joke telling skills… why? Because you will need them for your varicose or spider vein removal appointment! It’s such an easy and virtually pain free procedure that it will be a fine time to try out your new material. Watch the video below and hear it from the man himself, Dr. Jensen.
The impact of obesity, pregnancy, aging, and of course genetics, play a big role in who out there will develop varicose veins. My next guest Dr. Joseph Jensen is here to explain treatment options for those suffering from the unsightly and often painful condition. It’s great to have you.
Nice to be here.
So, I named a few causes of varicose veins. Would you say most women then are at risk for developing varicose veins at some point in their life?
Over half of women get varicose veins.
Half the women? What treatment options? Let’s get into the treatment. The positive side of the street. What’s available?
So, you know, I always advocate good healthy living. Exercise, nutrition, elevation of your feet, compression hose, but, once that isn’t enough, which it isn’t for over half half the women in their lifetime, then there’s two main procedures that we do in the office to treat varicose veins. The first is called endovenous ablation.
In endovenous ablation, a small catheter, now this is going to sound horrible but, it’s actually an easy thing to go through. A small catheter is inserted into the vein to be treated. And you numb up the vein and the catheter cauterizes the vein from the inside. That causes the vein to disappear. Now that’s a simple procedure done with just a couple of needle pokes.
And you’re eliminating the vein, in that case?
Right. That’s the substitution for striping the vein. Which was a horribly morbid procedure that people avoided. This is a simple thing, you come to my office you smile and giggle, and I poke you a few times and that’s the end of it.
Do you find people still associate with those old stories about the vein stripping and think that it’s just not something they want to get into?
I tell you, it’s hard sometimes to convince people when they first come to see me that it’s going to be an easy process. It’s always a surprise.
Who’s a good candidate for that procedure that you just described?
Anyone. Because it’s so simple. You know people suffer from leg pain and varicose vein problems and they avoid seeing the doctor because they imagine horrible things like stripping. And really if if they knew they could come in and crack a few jokes with me and listen to some good music while I’m working and walk out with no activity restrictions and virtually no pain, they would come and see me more often.
Well gosh, you almost make it sound fun. You almost make it sound fun.
I think, It’s fun for me.
The results you can see. We saw a couple of before and after pictures. Clients are really pleased.
Yeah, people are surprised. You know, that with such an easy process they can get such a great result. I’ve been in practice for twelve years, it’s one of the funnest things that I do because it’s an easy process and it’s a happy ending.
