Hamilton Vein Center - Bellaire Now Open 5 Days A Week

Mon, 19 Mar 2012 12:45:30 EST

HOUSTON, Texas  – The Hamilton Vein Center is pleased to announce that its Bellaire location is now operating a full schedule Monday through Friday. Hamilton Vein Center -- Bellaire opened in November 2011 as phase two of the Houston vein center's vision to bring today's minimally invasive vein treatments to the greater Houston area and surrounding cities.
 
'We have some patients who drive well over 50 miles for vein treatments at our Sugar Land location,' comments Dr. Carlos R. Hamilton III, medical director of the Hamilton Vein Center. 'This expansion into Bellaire is an important part of our greater vision to make vein treatments and vein health services more accessible to a number of our existing patients as well as future patients. It's also a great opportunity for us to reach more people with our vein awareness messages, including de-bunking the many myths that are keeping people away from getting their veins treated. It's amazing the misconceptions that are still out there.'
 
The most common vein misconceptions still swirling around are that varicose veins are just a cosmetic issue, no pain equals no problem, and vein treatment is expensive and painful. The truth is, the majority of unsightly vein problems are caused by an underlying medical condition called venous insufficiency – a progressive, mostly hereditary condition that occurs when blood flows backward due to stretching and enlargement of the vein wall. Over time, the valves that control the flow are not able to open and close properly, causing blood to pool in veins and branches.
 
While a bulging or discolored vein is an unsightly sign of an underlying vein problem, many people brush off and ignore feelings of tiredness, heaviness, achiness, and restlessness – each classic signs of venous insufficiency. You do not have to feel pain to have venous insufficiency. If you are experiencing any of the signs or having any issues with your legs, a simple ultrasound screening can determine if venous insufficiency is present or not. If it is, a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive vein treatment treats the problem at the source – all in the comfort and convenience of the Hamilton Vein Center.
 
Today's vein treatments improve quality of life – no matter the stage of progression.  Patients can expect virtually little to no pain, a fast recovery period, little to no downtime, and immediate relief. Procedures take less than an hour start to finish and most are covered by insurance and Medicare.

Dr. Hamilton welcomes Dr. Phyllis Chappell as medical director of the Bellaire office, along with a highly experienced team of nurses, physicians' assistants and ultrasound technicians. Dr. Chappell is board-certified in both family medicine and radiology and brings over 30 years medical experience to the Bellaire office. For more information about the Hamilton Vein Center and to book your complimentary vein consultation and screening, please visit www.hamiltonvein.com or call 281-565-0033. The Bellaire team looks forward to meeting you and helping you look and feel better soon.
