Books about vein health

More and more, patients are turning to their computers (and mobile devices) to gather information about health-related topics. But don’t forget about “good ol’ fashioned” books! There are a number of publications that can help people make informed decisions about their leg health and overall wellness.

Published by the American College of Phlebology (ACP), Healthy Veins…Healthy Legs was written by established vein specialists around the country. The Vein Healthcare Center’s own Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen contributed the chapter about risk factors and other causes for vein problems. The book gives patients a comprehensive look at vein disease, plus practical tips for prevention and management.

Many VHC patients turn to Understanding Venous Disease to learn more. The book, written by Dr. Asbjornsen, provides an overview of venous disease, including complications and the latest procedures. It also discusses alternative and conservative treatments.
Another consumer-friendly book is Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins & Spider Veins Now! by Dr. Greg Martin, a board certified phlebologist in Georgia. The book is written in a very accessible style that’s easy to understand.

For health professionals, the third (and latest) edition of Fundamentals of Phlebology: Venous Disease for Clinicians is soon to come out. It is considered “the Bible” for phlebologists other allied healthcare professionals who incorporate venous disease treatment in their practices.
Happy reading!
