Most frequent questions and answers
Varicose veins are swollen, dark blue or purple blood vessels. They often look like twisted cords, and usually appear on the calves, inside of the legs, and ankles. Symptoms associated with varicose veins include pain, heaviness, fatigue, burning, swelling, cramping, throbbing and restlessness.
As your arteries move nutrient rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body, veins consisting of periodic valves carry blood back to your heart to complete the circulatory system. These valves are responsible for preventing blood from flowing backwards in your veins. Venous insufficiency occurs when your veins struggle to send blood from your limbs back to the heart, causing blood to pool in the veins in your legs.
Several factors can cause venous insufficiency, though it’s most commonly caused by blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and varicose veins. Even if you have a family history of venous insufficiency, there are simple steps you can take to lower your chances of developing the condition.
Symptoms include fatigue, aching, itching, burning, throbbing, cramping, restlessness, and heaviness. Managing these symptoms and the daily routines to cover up unsighlty veins can be a daily struggle you don’t have to put up with anymore.
Most initial office evaluations begin with a careful history and physical exam. Photographs are often taken of the leg with the varicose veins. A painless ultrasound is then typically done which allows the doctor to identify where the problem is and help to cater the treatment.
The most common form of treatment in contemporary practice is either radiofrequency ablation or laser ablation of the varicose vein. This procedure is typically done in the office without sedation or anesthesia. A small needle is inserted into the vein after the skin in numbed and a catheter (about the size of a piece of spaghetti) is placed in the vein. The area around the vein it is numbed and the catheter is then turned on which treats the entire vein. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure and after the procedure is over the leg is wrapped up with an ace wrap for support.

Spider Veins or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the top layers of skin. They appear most commonly on the face, thighs, and feet, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. Although usually considered only a cosmetic problem, spider veins can show symptoms of a burning sensation or a dull, throbbing pain, and can lead to varicose veins and other serious complications. See our Spider Vein page for information regarding the treatment of spider veins.

Varicose veins can cause a whole spectrum of disease including pain, itching, swelling, heaviness and fatigue. In the most severe cases they can bleed or cause ulceration (skin tears) which can be quite difficult to heal.
All treatment is done in the office with local anesthetic and produces minimum discomfort for the patient. Because treatments are minimally invasive, patients are able to drive, return to work and resume most of their normal activities the same day as or the day after treatment.
