Dr. Deborah Manjoney, MD's Expert Contributions
You really must see a physician to have this evaluated. Those types of veins could indicate that you have an obstruction to blood return to the heart from your legs and you have developed "collateral" circulation to bypass the obstruction. A thorough history and evaluation is necessary. DO NOT let anyone treat those veins until a thorough evaluation is done! READ MORE
All of the procedures that I do for varicose veins are done with local anesthesia only. They are minimally invasive procedures that typically take a maximum of 75 minutes, usually less than 1 hour. Patients drive themselves to the office, and drive themselves home. There is no driving restriction. READ MORE
A need for referral depends on your own insurance plan. Ordinarily, no referral is needed, and you may choose the Phlebologist you wish. That office should let you know if your insurance company is "in network" before you make an appointment. READ MORE
There should be no scarring after spider vein treatments. Very tiny needles are used to inject the vessels. If a surface laser is used, there should also be no scarring if the clinician is experienced and understands the equipment. READ MORE
Removing varicose veins doesn't use a device, per se. Depending on whether the varicose veins are because of a problem in a "trunk" vein that it attaches to, a procedure with a Laser or a Radiofrequency generator may be used on that vein. The varicose veins themselves are either injected with a medication to get them to close off and be reabsorbed by the body, or by removing them through a series of needle punctures using a micro hook to extract them. READ MORE
When we do vein treatments for spider or varicose veins, we ask patients NOT to take a bath for about a week. Showers are allowed, but soaking in a warm bath will dilate the vessels we are trying to keep closed. READ MORE
Some varicose veins may go away on their own after pregnancy. Usually, however, if they are still around at 3 months postpartum, they are there to stay. Walking is excellent for vein health in general, because as you walk, you contract your calf muscles, and help pump the blood out of your legs. To strengthen veins, you can try horse chestnut pills, or Diosmin from a natural food store. Prescription Vasculara contains diosmin at a regulated level. These products will not make your varicose veins go away, but may strengthen other veins. There are many minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins that can be performed in a medical office, without the need for hospitalization. READ MORE
Spider vein treatments are performed by injecting a special irritant into the veins that causes the inner lining to dissolve. The veins can then be gradually absorbed by the body. We also sometimes use a laser device on the surface of the skin, or a tiny electric needle to get spider veins to disappear. None of these treatments necessitate you being off from work. Spider vein treatments are a PROCESS that take, on average, 2-3 sessions to fade away the veins. READ MORE
There are many laser devices, and another light-based treatment called IPL, that can get rid of spider veins on the nose. Other techniques include a tiny electric needle that zaps the veins away. A dermatologist or a professional at a laser center or medical spa can help you. READ MORE
Spider veins are very common, especially in women. They are also more common as we age. There is often a hereditary component. Sometimes spider veins are a reflection of a larger vein not functioning properly. If you have any aching, leg swelling, fatigue or leg cramps, then you should have an evaluation that includes an ultrasound of your leg veins to see which ones may have a problem. READ MORE
The only time that spider veins may be considered potentially dangerous, is when they protrude from the skin and are very dark, "hypertensive" spider veins. If these veins break through the skin, they can bleed. If this happens when a person is unaware, for instance, when they were sleeping, this can be quite dangerous. It is hypertensive spider veins at the ankle which are most often at risk for bleeding. Spider veins are almost never dangerous, and usually, they have no associated symptoms. This makes them a cosmetic concern which can be handled with a technique known as sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy involves a series of treatments using FDA approved solutions that can be injected in very small amounts through tiny needles. Sometimes the treatments may be combined with the use of a surface laser to speed up the resolution. READ MORE
Unfortunately, there are no exercises that will get rid of, or prevent, varicose veins. The good news is, there are minimally invasive treatments that can eliminate the appearance of varicose veins. You should seek out a center that specializes in vein disease to discuss options after a thorough evaluation. On Thursday, January 30, 2020, 04:49:29 PM CST, FATD Patient Questions

Spider veins can go away on their own, but it is not likely. During pregnancy, there is increased venous back pressure in your legs. Spider veins can form because of this venous hypertension. It is especially likely if you suffered from leg swelling. A vein specialist can evaluate your problem and ask specific questions to see if you need further studies or if spider vein treatment alone is likely to be successful. Sclerotherapy, or injection of an FDA-approved drug into the spider veins, works by causing the small veins to go into spasm, and injures the vein lining. The veins eventually get absorbed by your body. Please be aware that spider vein elimination is a process, and you will need 2-3 treatments on average to make them disappear. READ MORE

Patient Experience with Dr. Manjoney
Get to know Surgeon Dr. Deborah Manjoney, who serves patients in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.
Board-certified thoracic surgeon, Dr. Manjoney, is the Founder and Medical Director of Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, which she opened in 2002.
Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is a physician-owned and operated facility dedicated to providing the most effective treatments and products available with the highest standard of care. Dr. Manjoney and her experienced team offer state-of-the-art non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures in the Milwaukee area medical spa that actually give patients’ results that they may have thought were unattainable or only achieved by costly plastic surgery. Their specialties include treatments targeting lines and wrinkles, texture and tone, volume loss and facial contours, veins, and body contouring, all of which are designed to improve patients’ skin and enhance their overall appearance and comfort.
A recognized leader in office-based treatment of varicose veins, Dr. Manjoney has performed over 2,500 endovenous laser ablation of saphenous veins and over 8,000 ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy procedures. She was the first female surgeon to bring the “medispa” concept to the area, and although it was difficult to leave a high-powered career as a heart surgeon, she saw a need for the services she now offers. Her vision was to offer premium care in a state-of-the-art facility that had a comfortable, calming environment.
The doctor’s model of excellence is continually implemented through offering the best training and education for her staff. Her high standards are evidenced by her expert staff and the quality of care she offers her patients. She provides the most advanced medical and aesthetic treatments and has a strong desire to continue helping women and men to feel great. Recognizing the need for helping women manage and overcome perimenopausal symptoms, hormone imbalance, as well as sexual and bladder issues, she joined forces with Dr. Joi Davis, formerly of Age Defy Wisconsin. This portion of the center offers bioidentical hormone therapy, FemiLift treatments, and more.
Pertaining to her educational background, Dr. Manjoney earned her medical degree from the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont in 1978. She was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Fraternity in her third year, and was the recipient of the Senior Surgical Research Award. She completed an internship, residency, and chief residency in general surgery at the University of Vermont Medical Center before pursuing and finishing an additional residency in thoracic surgery at the University of Chicago.
She then served as Assistant Professor of Surgery at the State University of New York in Brooklyn and as Chief of Thoracic Surgery at the Kings County Hospital from 1986 to 1990. She subsequently worked as an attending Cardiothoracic Surgeon in Erie, Pennsylvania before moving to the Milwaukee area in 1992.
Once in Wisconsin, Dr. Manjoney served as a Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeon on staff at several area hospitals in both Milwaukee and Waukesha for over 10 years, with an active practice until 2004. That is when she left her hospital practice to devote all her medical efforts to the treatment of varicose vein disease and performance of minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures.
With years of experience in her field, Dr. Manjoney has been a speaker at regional and national conferences on the subject of heart disease in women and a nationally-sponsored educator of physicians on laser therapy of varicose veins. She has lectured extensively to audiences on local, national and international levels, and has been featured in magazines, news articles, radio and television. She continues to educate the public on both medical and aesthetic procedures through regular appearances on The Morning Blend television show and through lectures at colleges and local seminars. She is a firm believer in educating the public on taking charge of their own health and well-being.
Honored as a pioneer in both business and medicine, she received the Milwaukee Business Journal’s prestigious Entrepreneur “Woman of Influence” Award in June of 2009. She was also cited as the “Nurses’ Choice” for Best Cardiothoracic Surgeon in The Milwaukee Magazine, and listed as a “Top Doc” in the January 2013 edition of M magazine in the area of vascular surgery.
A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Manjoney remains a member of several professional organizations, including the American Vein and Lymphatic Society, the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, American Medical Spa Society, and the National Association of Professional Women. She was board-certified in surgery by the American Board of Surgery, in thoracic surgery by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and is a diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. She also is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation.
Her current appointments include being a preceptor/lecturer for Dornier Med Tech, and editorial board member for Vein Therapy News and Luminary for Alma Lasers. Moreover, she has been extensively published in a variety of medical publications, including Phlebology, The American Journal of Surgery, The Journal of Surgical Research, and The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.
Among her philanthropic endeavours, Dr. Manjoney has served on the Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital Foundation Board. She is an active sponsor and participant of the Go Red for Women movement of the American Heart Association and she is a supporter of many local and national charities.
In her personal life, Dr. Manjoney resides in Nashotah with her husband, Dr. Scott Stanwyck, an orthopedic surgeon. She has two adult children, Cole and Lauren. She credits her family as her motivation to change careers and is appreciative of the love and support they have given her.
