There’s good news for those who suffer from venous conditions in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Many people do not realize leg pain can be caused by vaircose veins or chronic venous insufficiency. Dark blue, twisted veins near the skin’s surface result from weak vein walls and malfunctioning valves caused by genetics, obesity, hormones and prolonged standing or sitting. Pooling blood can compress the nerves resulting in leg fatigue, cramping, swelling, skin color changes, unexplained itching and restless leg symptoms. Left untreated, vein disease progresses at 4% each year.
Many patients (and some doctors) may not understand the disease, or mistake it as a cosmetic issue, leading to needless suffering with symptoms that drastically impact their quality of life. It is estimated that people live with CVI for up to 35 years before seeking treatment. “Everyone at Florida Lakes Vein Center is committed to providing compassionate care and fulfilling our responsibilities to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Lackey.
Florida Lakes Vein Center (FLVC), a top medical practice in Sebring, FL, expanded locally, opening offices in Venice and Lakewood Ranch to treat patients suffering from venous conditions that include varicose veins, spider veins, deep vein thrombosis, and venous ulcers.
FLVC founder, Dr. TC Lackey D.O., is committed to offering the highest quality care, using the most cutting-edge, least invasive procedures possible to treat his patients.
To better serve patients locally, Dr. Lackey has partnered with boardcertified general surgeon and vein specialist Dr. Adam Phillips. Together, the two doctors will focus on providing the Sarasota and Manatee community with personalized, state-of-the-art venous care with no downtime.
