Consultation - Visit Iron Mountain Vein and meet with our board certified radiologist, Dr. Emma DiPonio. Dr. DiPonio will examine your legs and ask many questions to determine if your symptoms are related to your veins. If you have the symptoms correlating with venous disease the next step will be an ultrasound. If you are asymptomatic but have concerns about the appearance of your legs, treatment options can be discussed immediately by skipping to step four.
Color Duplex Ultrasound - A color duplex ultrasound will be conducted in the office to evaluate your venous anatomy, vein valve function and venous blood flow changes. Here, both the deep and superficial venous systems will be analyzed.
Recommended Treatment Plan - After the ultrasound is performed, Dr. DiPonio will sit down with you to discuss both the results of the ultrasound as well as what steps can be of assistance to your symptoms. Next, after discussing each procedure and answering any questions, both you and your doctor will decide what route is best for you.
Schedule your treatment - The treatment plan depends on each patient and the severity of their individual disorder. After, you will schedule the procedures that are best suited for your symptoms.
1. Endovenous Thermal Ablation
4. Veinwave therapy
Follow-up Appointments - The follow-up appointments are just as important as the treatment itself. The amount of time between appointments varies for each procedure and for each patients outcome. Follow-up appointments will be made at the close of each appointment.
