In this segment of That Business Show, our guest was Dr. Chris Pittman, Medical Director and CEO of Vein911. Dr. Pittman is triple board certified and one of only a few hundred physicians Board-Certified in Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Known for their minimally invasive non-surgical technique for the treatment of varicose veins, Dr. Pittman and Vein 911 is revolutionizing vein care. Their mission is to help you look and feel your best and they have offices in Tampa and St. Petersburg and can easily be reached by calling 855-VEIN-911. Dr. Pittman is a trained radiologist and spoke in the opening segment about lymphedema.
Dr. Pittman explains how the lymphatic system is our third circulatory system with the veins and arteries acting as the primary other two. Due primarily to genetics, some people develop ankle swelling as they age and this swelling is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in their ankles. This is not a condition to ignore and Dr. Pittman advises seeking out a doctor such as himself that will actively treat the condition; stating that many doctors are less inclined to take the condition seriously.
Varicose veins are another avenue that Dr. Pittman and his staff treat daily at Vein911 where they perform pain free outpatient procedures without the use of invasive surgical techniques. Many doctors practicing vein treatment still utilize a surgical procedure for this treatment and Dr. Pittman is adamant that is no longer necessary. His techniques using Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy can have your legs looking as good as new in just a few procedures and without the pain of other procedures. He routinely sees patients treated by other procedures and has near 100% patient satisfaction in this group. Dr. Pittman also elaborates on some of the other conditions of the legs that may be related to undiagnosed vein disorders such as restless leg syndrome and night cramps and we also touch on treatment of hand veins too. Using the same technique to treat varicose veins, many patients report significant improvement in these conditions when treated by Dr. Pittman. If you are experiencing these issues and have not had success with traditional techniques, get in touch with Vein911 today by calling 855-VEIN-911 (855-834-6911).
