Varicose Vein Treatment in Bozeman

BOZEMAN -

According to the Vascular Disease Foundation more than 20 million Americans have varicose veins. One of the newest vein clinics in Bozeman helps people who suffer from this common medical condition.

Kristen Hoell is one of the millions of people in the United States that had enlarged veins also known as varicose veins.

It comes from a genetic condition called venous (venus) insufficiency. The condition causes people to have circulating problems in their leg veins where blood is flowing in an incorrect direction.

Hoell describes the effect varicose veins had on her daily life, "I had heredity vein conditions that just made it uncomfortable when I exercised, when I hiked, especially with a lot of activity."

Typically people have pain, swelling or restlessness in their leg. A year ago Hoell went to the Rocky Mountain Vein Clinic and got a procedure done to alleviate her pain.

"I was excited just to have it done and not to have worry about it and have the discomfort."

The Rocky Mountain Vein Clinic has performed more than six thousand vein procedures since 2006.

According to Dr. Philip Seu of the Rocky Mountain Vein Clinic, "The procedure is called endoveniembalshun and what that involves is an outpatient procedure where we insert a thin catheter into the patients vein. We numb up the vein and we treat the vein which causes the vein to close."

It closes the vein with leaky vales in it, improving the circulation in the patients leg. The clinic also offers endovenous laser therapy, an ultrasound-guided technique, used for treating varicose veins through laser energy.

Now Hoell can exercise with no pain in her legs.

"It's great. It doesn't bother me at all and it's something that I lived with for a long time and I don't have to now."

The Rocky Mountain Vein Clinic opened its third location in Bozeman last month.

They also have a location in Billings and Cody, Wyoming.
