Understanding Vein Disease

  • Vein disease or venous insufficiency is very common affecting almost half of all Americans. Symptoms may seem harmless at first but can develop into serious problems if left untreated. Fortunately, early detection can prevent future serious health problems that may affect the quality of your life.

  • Common Symptoms of venous insufficiency includes:
    • Leg heaviness, aching, cramps and swelling
    • Leg ulcers
    • Restless legs
    • Itching or burning of the skin on your legs
    • Brown, purple or red discoloration of the lower leg and/or foot
    • Varicose, spider or reticular veins
    • Risk for development of blood clots

  • Symptoms are typically worse later in the day, especially after standing long hours.

  • Vein treatments can prevent these potential problems and are a simple walk-in walk-out procedure performed in the office with no scarring, lengthy recovery or side effects.
