Why Choose Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa?
Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa’s clinical team consists of Dr. Manjoney, a former Cardiothoracic surgeon, working with a physician assistant, nurses, ultrasound technicians, and medical aestheticians. We work together with our patients from consultation to follow-up. We treat you as an individual, making sure you understand the vein issues you have, the treatment options available, and what to expect before, during, and after treatment. It is important to us that our patients are educated throughout the entire process.
“Our goal is to work together with our patients to achieve the best possible outcomes for them,” says Dr. Manjoney.
We Are Leaders in Cutting Edge Milwaukee Vein Treatments
Dr. Manjoney was one of the first physicians in Wisconsin to perform endovenous procedures on the saphenous vein, the superficial vein responsible for most varicose veins. She has been performing endovenous laser closures since 2002. Since this procedure only requires injection of dilute local anesthetic, it has revolutionized the treatment of varicose veins. No longer are painful vein stripping procedures required with long recovery times and loss of work. All procedures can be done in the office, with no downtime, and no need to go to a hospital! As the premier provider of vein treatments in Southeast Wisconsin, Dr. Manjoney is often selected to introduce new vein treatments to the Milwaukee area.
Wisconsin Vein Center and MediSpa was the first practice in Wisconsin to use the Varithena Procedure! Varithena was approved in 2014 as a cutting edge technique to treat varicose veins and incompetence of the great saphenous system.
Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is a prescription medicine used to treat varicose veins caused by problems with the great saphenous vein (GSV) and other related veins in the leg’s GSV system. It helps improve the symptoms of heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing, and itching related to or caused by varicose veins and the appearance of varicose veins. As the first facility in Wisconsin to offer this exciting new treatment, Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is delighted to provide patients with this new, nonsurgical option. Dr. Manjoney and our team has been specially trained in using Varithena and would be happy to discuss the treatment with you to see if it is right for you.
We are also able to offer ClariVein, a combination mechanical and chemical procedure used to close off the great saphenous vein and superficial veins. The advantage of Varithena or ClariVein are the absence of need for any injectable local anesthesia.
Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis
Massive pulmonary embolism attributed to DVT causes over 300,000 deaths in the United States each year. That’s more than deaths from breast cancer and HIV disease combined. PE is the leading cause of preventable in-hospital mortality. With that said, here is some important information you should know, as well as informative materials you can download and print:
There are certain people who are more at risk than others to develop DVT. Age plays a major role. Although a blood clot can develop in anyone, the older you are, the greater the likelihood. Additional risk factors include immobilization due to hospitalization, recent surgery, pregnancy and the first weeks postpartum, and long air or car trips. Other conditions which are known to have a higher risk include cancer, stroke, heart failure, and varicose veins. Injuries such as lower extremity fractures can also cause blood clots to form. Finally, there are conditions which make the blood more likely to coagulate or clot. These include certain blood disorders that may be inherited, and medications such as birth control pills or estrogens. The more risk factors an individual has, the more likely he or she is to develop DVT.
DVT does not always cause symptoms, however larger clots can lead to leg pain and swelling. DVT is a serious problem that requires immediate medical attention. Blood thinners are usually needed, and clot-busting medication may be indicated. If left untreated, a fatal PE can occur, or permanent venous insufficiency can lead to chronic leg swelling and ulceration.
