Patients who live in Castro Valley and have varicose veins have a great treatment option available.
Dr. Malvehy is one of the best vein doctors in the East Bay Area and San Francisco Bay Area with an office located near Castro Valley in Pleasanton, on Stoneridge Mall Road.
Varicose veins are abnormal, non-functional veins in the legs and are a manifestation of a deeper circulation issue called venous insufficiency. Without treatment, varicose veins may lead to leg pain, cramping, leg swelling, superficial thrombosis or blood clots, skin discoloration, and ulcers or wounds. Many patients experience frequent leg cramps or Restless Leg Syndrome, which interfere with sleep. Genetics play the greatest role in whether an individual gets vein varicose veins disease. Other risk factors include multiple pregnancies, prolonged standing, and blood clots (deep vein thrombosis or DVT).
While using compression stockings, losing weight, walking and elevating the legs may provide temporary relief, none of these actually addresses the underlying circulation issues to provide the best varicose vein treatment. By performing a detailed physical and ultrasound, Dr. Malvehy can provide a customized treatment plan using tested and state-of-the-art techniques performed in the office with no downtime. For many patients, a single treatment course – focused on treating the underlying venous insufficiency – provides definitive cure for their varicose veins. Our office has a variety of lasers available to ensure that you get the best laser vein treatment for you. This is also called EndoVenous Laser Treatment or EndoVenous Laser Ablation.
Patients coming from Castro Valley should drive east on I-580 to Foothills road and exit South. Then turn left on Laurel Creek and our office will be on the left. The drive should take 20 minutes!
If you have symptoms like pain, bleeding, or ulcers, vein treatment may be covered by Medicare and most commercial insurance.
“I so wish I had gone here when a friend told me about Dr Malvehy 3 years ago. There is so much misinformation about vein treatment. If you have leg pain, heaviness, itchiness, spider or varicose veins you need an ultrasound and not sclerotherapy. There may be a root cause of your vein issues that a dermatologist or even vascular surgeon will not diagnose properly. I tried years of sclerotherapy and my legs only worsened pain and appearance wise as years progressed. This doctor knows his stuff and the process has been enjoyable, efficient and educational at the same time. There is help with the right doctor and Dr Malvehy is the one to go to. I am very happy I finally went to his office. The facilities, staff and procedures are pleasant, friendly and warm. I will recommend him to everyone.”
