At the Vein Healthcare Center, we’re helping patients, physicians and communities view venous disease and its symptoms in a new way.
Many people who experience vein disorders have been disappointed with traditional methods of care, or have been discouraged from seeking treatment because of limited options.
The Vein Healthcare Center serves communities in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Canada, and brings superior medical care to those at every stage of venous disease. Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen focuses on providing a comfortable setting where she can evaluate your individual symptoms – from the first appearance of varicose veins to advanced-stage venous stasis ulcers – and explore the best avenue for your treatment.
While varicose veins can hinder confidence and the ability to participate fully in life’s activities, venous disease is never simply cosmetic. It is a progressive disease that can lead to incapacitating symptoms, heightened pain, and intensified health concerns. Today, those suffering with venous disorders and their symptoms can improve their overall health, and manage the progression of their disease. Patients can benefit from today’s minimally-invasive therapies with very little pain and outstanding success rates when performed by an experienced, board certified phlebologist.
If you live with the effects of venous disease, it’s the right time to learn about the opportunities you have to ease your symptoms and help you live a fuller, more active, pain-free life.
The Vein Healthcare Center provides services for patients in Maine, New England, and surrounding communities and accepts most major insurances. Visit Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen in her South Portland office, or contact us at 207-221-7799.
News and Information from VHC
Endovenous laser ablation, or EVLA, is a minimally invasive treatment used to address specific large varicose veins in the legs. It is considered the gold standard in treatment of venous symptoms, and has largely replaced previous, more invasive standards of care, such as vein stripping.
Sometimes venous disease is very obvious. Bulging, twisty veins that wrap around your legs is one manifestation. Purple spidery veins on the backs of your thighs may be another. But there are other, more subtle clues that your veins may not be working as well as they should.
