Why Dr. Brooks?
My background of anesthesia and interventional pain management has given me the insight about how best to manage a patient’s pain and provide the best treatment options. I have participated in hundreds of surgical procedures to treat vascular disorders including venous disease. I have always felt that the surgical option was extremely difficult for the patient on so many levels.
Why get vein treatment now?
The disease process of venous insufficiency is a progressive disease that will never get better without vein treatment. The disease process only gets worse over time and it becomes more difficult to reverse the secondary effects of venous insufficiency. These are moderate to significant leg ache worsening over the course of the day, sense of heaviness in the legs. restless legs at night, swelling of the lower calf and ankle areas, worsening spider veins and enlarged superficial veins, skin color changes and ultimately skin ulceration.
