Over 30 million Americans suffer from varicose veins and other venous disease.  Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe that this is simply a cosmetic problem or a normal part of aging.  They also mistakenly believe that treatment is either not available, is not covered by insurance, or involves painful surgery. Therefore, they do not seek treatment and continue to suffer with their symptoms as the problem worsens over time.

Varicose veins are often the result of malfunctioning vein valves. This can cause abnormal pooling of blood in the legs known as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  Chronic venous insufficiency is a recognized medical condition.  If left untreated it can cause pain, chronic leg swelling, permanent skin damage, leg wounds, and other potentially serious health problems. Fortunately, minimally-invasive treatment is available that is often covered by insurance and can safely relieve symptoms, improve appearance and prevent the problem from worsening.
