Bring Down Swelling With Help From Our Team

Leg swelling is something no one should have to deal with. Not only is it uncomfortable, but leg swelling can also make it difficult to sit or stand for long periods of time. Don’t let swollen legs diminish your quality of life! Look to the team at Dr. Moutaa BenMaamer to find effective treatments. Our surgeon is an expert in a variety of venous conditions and can pinpoint the cause of your swelling. Find out how we address leg swelling at our Southwest Florida surgery center.

Leg Swelling Can Be a Sign of Something Serious

On its own, leg swelling might not seem like a big deal. Many people assume the swelling will go away without treatment after a few weeks. However, we highly recommend consulting with a doctor as soon as possible. Swollen legs could be a sign of a more serious condition, including the following:

  • Heart disease or heart valve disease
  • Heart failure
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Cellulitis
  • Lymphedema

Know the Symptoms Associated With Swelling

Swollen legs don’t usually occur isolated from other symptoms. Many times, underlying vascular problems are associated with swelling as well as these additional symptoms:

  • Varicose veins
  • Itching and burning sensations
  • General leg pain
  • Legs feeling heavy or tired
  • Skin rashes
  • Discolored or thickened skin
  • Leg ulcers
  • Red, warm skin (common with deep vein thrombosis)
  • Dizziness or shortness of breath (common with heart conditions)
