Top 10 Comments from Patients with Varicose Veins – Number 10

Vein disease one of the most common disease processes is under diagnosed and under treated. It is more common than coronary heart disease and peripheral arterial disease combined.

With advances in phlebology, the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease, there is no need for you to delay evaluation and treatment. With that thought in mind I want to share a series on comments from my patients with varicose and spider veins.

Golf in Slacks  | Vein Specialists of the South

#10 “It’s too hot to play golf in long slacks.”

Living in Georgia the hot season begins well before summer and extends into the fall.

If you live in the south you can identify with that miserable feeling when the temperatures reach the 90’s — 100’s F and the heat index approaches >110 degrees F. You break out in a sweat when leaving your office to get in your car to drive home.

These conditions are uncomfortable and dangerous. If you are outside for an extended time you at risk for a heat related illness. However, avid golfer with varicose and spider veins will not let these conditions keep them off the links but they can crimp their comfort and style.

The problem is that vein disease is both a health concern and embarrassing, too. Many of my patients who golf tell me that they don’t own a pair of golf shorts. Imagine playing golf in long slacks in the middle of the hot season, ouch!

The good news is that there are new minimally invasive procedures for correction of varicose and spider veins. Contact us online or call (800) 764-3280 to begin you journey to healthy legs for life. Don’t go through another summer golf season in long pants.
