If you notice problems in your legs, like a change in the skin color, the beginning of an ulcer, or pain, schedule a vein evaluation with Dr. Rodolfo Farhy at the Heart and Vein Center. These symptoms are signs of venous insufficiency, which must be managed early to prevent venous ulcers. When venous ulcers go untreated, they may become progressively worse and difficult to heal. To schedule a vein assessment, call the doctor’s office in Lathrup Village, Michigan, or book an appointment online.
Dr. Farhy identifies the underlying abnormal veins using ultrasound. Then he may recommend intervention in the form of an endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, or ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, depending on your diagnosis.
