Frequently Asked Questions


Am I a candidate for varicose vein treatment?

If you have pain, swelling, or heaviness in your legs, ankles, or pelvis, you may suffer from varicose veins (venous insufficiency). Typically, varicose vein patients also suffer from pain while standing or walking for long periods of time.

Venous insufficiency is a disease and should be treated by professionals who specialize in comprehensive varicose vein management, including diagnosis and treatment.
