Healthy Veins



Healthy veins have valves which open and close to assist the return of blood to the heart. Venous disease also called vein insufficiency or venous reflux, occurs if these valves become damaged, allowing the backward flow of blood in the legs. Because gravity works on the legs more than on other parts of the body, these vein walls are under tremendous pressure. When blood cannot be properly returned through the vein, it can pool, leading to a feeling of heaviness and fatigue, causing varicose veins and other skin changes.

Our legs are comprised of a network of veins that are similar to branches on a tree. They contain large or major veins and increasingly smaller veins. Oxygenated blood is constantly being pumped from the heart to the rest of our bodies through arteries. It is the job of our veins to carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart.

Over time, this increased pressure can cause additional valves to fail. If you think you have venous disease, It is a big risk to just keep waiting to see what happens down the road. You should come in as soon as possible to see us here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas. Leg pain is what we specialize in and we can help you get and remain pain free we can examine your legs and provide answers to all your questions.

Vein disease in the legs causes blood to reflux or pool in your leg veins which leads to a number of uncomfortable symptoms such as leg pain, burning, itching, restless leg, heaviness and fatigue. When left untreated, venous reflux can lead to more significant medical issues such as pain, chronic swelling, skin discoloration, thickening of the skin and ulceration. The vast majority of leg pain and vein disease is undiagnosed and untreated. Without treatment this condition gets worse never better with time. When you come in to see us here in Las Vegas your legs will be  looked at under ultrasound for reflux or backflow of blood in the veins. For most people even debilitating symptoms are completely treatable.

Treatment can help manage venous disease by eliminating pain and improving appearance and overall health. Today’s treatments are minimally-invasive, cause very little pain, and can be accomplished quickly right here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas.


Treatment can stop the progression of the disease and its complications for those in its early stages, and for those struggling with late-stage symptoms, it can restore health and quality of life. Proper treatment means evaluating your complete venous system.

As part of complete comprehensive care, it is critical that evaluation involves close attention to the entire venous system so poorly functioning veins can be treated at the source. Venous reflux can be an underlying cause of many symptoms, and because superficial veins are connected to the deeper venous system, valve failure that causes varicose veins can originate in a major vein, where treatment should be focused. Dr. Sassan Kaveh specializes in vein health and will be able to see by your first appointment if there is something that needs to be treated in your legs!
