Varicose veins are a vascular affliction that goes beyond being a mere cosmetic condition. And, if left untreated, they can lead to more serious problems. That's why Dr. Kakish is focused on early treatment, specializing in minimally invasive techniques to treat unpleasant-looking, and often uncomfortable, varicose veins.
Dr. Humam Kakish, a board-certified vascular surgeon and Chief of Vascular Surgery at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, has eased the discomfort for thousands of patients with varicose veins.
“My goal is to help patients deal with this condition in the most convenient, painless way possible,” he says. “If varicose veins are not treated, they continue to get worse, causing blood clots, ulcers and bleeding.”
As a board-certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Kakish deals with all aspects of arterial (PAD) and venous disease. His practice includes the latest in minimally invasive laser techniques for varicose veins treatment, and he has a 98 % success rate.
“We do all we can to make this as easy as possible for our patients,” Dr. Kakish says. “It’s an outpatient procedure. Patients are given a mild sedative, and they can even listen to music while’s it’s being done.”
It is not a lengthy process. “From the time they walk in the office, until the moment they leave, it takes about an hour,” he says.
Dr. Kakish has a special interest in treating varicose vein disease. He has one of the largest varicose vein practices in the Metroplex. He offers in-office procedures using laser ablation, and foam sclerotherapy. He provides a comprehensive vascular evaluation using an onsite diagnostic ultrasound, which makes treatment simple and efficient.
Dr. Kakish, a graduate of Stanford University, served his Fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He is a member of The Society of Vascular Surgeons, Texas Medical Association and Dallas County Medical Society. He has been written about in Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Day and Redbook magazines. He has also been featured in the health segment of the Hot On! Health and Beauty television program, and he serves as a consultant for health-related news stories broadcast throughout North Texas.
