How Much Do You Know About Varicose Veins?

Myth: Varicose veins are just a cosmetic issue.

FACT: Varicose veins, if not medically treated, can progress to a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). In addition to causing leg pain and swelling, this can result in leg restlessness, skin damage and even ulcers.

Myth: Vein treatments are extremely painful.

FACT: There are minimally-invasive treatment options available to treat
varicose veins in the comfort of our facility. Walk in, walk out—with a short
recovery and quick return to everyday activities.

Myth: Treatments are too expensive to consider.

FACT: Because varicose veins and CVI are recognized as clinical conditions,
most insurance plans (including Medicare) will cover treatment

Know the Signs.

• Itching or irritated rash on the legs or near the ankles
