Vein Care in Atlanta

Don’t let spider veins, varicose veins and other forms of vein disease in Atlanta interfere with your busy lifestyle. Take control of your health and appearance with vein treatment at North Georgia Vein Center. Though many people become frustrated with the unsightly appearance of spider and varicose veins on the arms, legs and face, they are much more than just a cosmetic issue.

If left untreated, varicose and spider veins can lead to a number of uncomfortable conditions, including:

  • Edema, or leg swelling
  • Changes in skin color
  • Venous ulcers, or open sores

Dr. John T. Perry offers Atlanta the most advanced options for vein disease treatment, helping residents of Atlanta overcome their obstacles with vein disease through minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment options. North Georgia Vein Center has an office in Atlanta, helping you to overcome any embarrassment and discomfort associated with vein conditions so you can get back to your busy schedule.

Treatment for Vein Disease in Atlanta

As a first line of vein treatment, Dr. Perry generally offers conservative treatment options, like compression stockings or support hose. These stockings resemble nylons or knee-highs, but are tighter than standard cosmetic pantyhose. By adding compression to the legs, these stockings enhance blood flow and actually encourage blood to flow upwards towards the heart. This can reduce pooling in the legs and therefore reduce the appearance of any discoloration associated with spider and varicose veins.

If compression hose are not enough to alleviate your vein condition, then Dr. Perry has minimally and non-invasive treatment options for vein diseases in Atlanta, including:

Dr. Perry also treats deep vein thrombosis or DVT in Atlanta. Deep vein thrombosis is the development of a blood clot in the deep veins, most commonly in the calves of the legs. Deep vein thrombosis has the potential to develop into a serious, even fatal condition called a pulmonary embolism (PE). A PE occurs when the blood clot from the deep veins leaves the legs and travels to the lungs. Symptoms of DVT include swelling, pain, tingling and discoloration in the legs. Dr. Perry treats deep vein thrombosis with a combination of blood thinners and other minimally invasive treatment options.
