“This has been life changing.”
These are the words of a patient named Peggy who was treated recently by our vein specialists at Artemis, and it is exactly words like these that reinforce our commitment to treating venous disease. Peggy suffered from varicosities and venous disease for 25 years. The symptoms, including pain, aching, and swelling, had progressed slowly, finally reaching a point where she could not maintain her normal activity level. Her quality of life diminished, but because she had become accustomed to feeling poorly, she didn’t realize what a difference it would eventually make in her life to have her venous disease treated. Now that her treatment is complete, her legs have never felt better and she is back on her feet doing all the things she enjoys.
Artemis is proud to share other stories from patients who have benefitted from the vein care and treatment provided by our skilled doctors and medical team:
Symptoms warn us that something in the body needs attention. Artemis Colorado shares the following stories to encourage you to listen to your symptoms and seek treatment early.
After having her second child, Joan suffered from varicose veins in her legs that caused aching and swelling. She also noticed the formation of tiny blue and red “spider veins” that she considered unattractive. Because she thought the procedures to treat these issues would be painful, costly, and require a lengthy recovery, she avoided treatment. Coincidentally, Joan’s sister had her own veins treated and recommended the procedure to Joan, who finally called Artemis.
After her vein treatment, Joan was back to chasing her kids around in no time. She is very happy with the look of her legs, as well as the dramatic improvement in her symptoms. Her insurance covered the cost of the procedures.
Robert is an engineer whose veins had suffered due to long hours working at a desk and a lengthy commute. After sitting so much, his legs would swell and feel uncomfortable, which only made him want to sit at home in the evenings. Several months before he sought treatment, he noticed changes in the color of the skin around his ankles and the formation of varicose veins. Robert wanted to begin a more active lifestyle, but he didn’t think that he could restore his health on his own. Robert called Artemis to discuss his symptoms and then decided to undergo a simple, almost painless procedure known as vein ablation. After treatment, he felt motivated to improve his overall health.
You can read more patient success stories on our testimonial page. Though patients and their situations vary, one commonality is that suffering caused by venous disease can be relieved sooner if treatment is sought earlier. Untreated venous disease often leads to worsening symptoms such as aching, swelling, fatigue, skin color, and sensation changes. Ulcerations or poorly healing wounds around the ankles may occur with advanced disease. Explore treatment options earlier to avoid these severe symptoms. With today’s advanced technologies, treatment is highly effective and easier than ever.
