Large twisted veins in the legs and pelvis are known as varicose veins. Normal veins contain valves that enable blood to return from the legs to the heart. Varicose veins have damaged valves, and the blood is pulled backwards to the leg by gravity when standing. The veins then swell and enlarge. Besides the cosmetic effects, legs can become heavy and painful. The leg may become discolored or swollen. Sometimes, this can lead to more serious medical problems.
Vascular Specialists offer a variety of nonsurgical and surgical treatments for varicose veins, encompassing all types of venous problems. These include sclerotherapy, support stockings, radiofrequency or laser ablation, and vein strippings. By offering all forms of venous treatment, a patient’s individual therapy is therefore tailored to their specific needs.
