Varicose Veins / Spider Veins
Do you have unsightly varicose veins or spider veins? Spider veins or telangiectasis of the legs are a common problem that particularly affects women. Small purple, blue or red veins can form anywhere on the leg, from the top of the thigh to the ankle. These veins appear as connected lines resembling a sunburst or spider web pattern or as short, unconnected lines.
Varicose veins are larger, sometimes raised veins which are often blue in color. These are not the deep veins connected to the valve system, however, they can become quite painful, producing a burning or throbbing sensation.
Dr. Graziano has special advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of these vein conditions. He works with a team of specialists to provide comprehensive care of varicose veins and spider veins. Most often these treatments can be performed in an office setting without any hospital stay. Please call his office for a complimentary consultation concerning all your treatment options and for information on the most modern techniques available to you.
Medicare Diabetic Shoe Program
Diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States. During the past decade, there has been an increase of 33% with the diabetic population currently topping 16 million people. There are many complications associated with diabetes including kidney, heart, vision, circulatory and foot problems. The good news is that many of these potential problems can be minimized as a result of life style changes, medications, and other preventive care.
Amputations, or partial amputations, of the feet and legs, are also growing at an alarming rate. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic amputations in the United States. Recently a task force was created by officials from Medicare, the American Podiatric Medical Association and the American Diabetes Association in order to explore ways to reduce the number of amputations in the diabetic population. The number of these lower extremity amputations grew by 28% in just the past several years. However, it has been determined that over half of these amputations could have been prevented by timely, conservative foot care.
We are authorized Medicare Suppliers to evaluate, prescribe and dispense high-quality shoes and 3 pairs of removable shoe inserts per the calendar year. Many diabetic patients qualify for this benefit and Medicare will pay 80% of the cost for the shoes and insoles. Your supplemental insurance should pay the other 20%.
