Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged veins at the surface of the skin which may appear twisted, ropey or bulged. Diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins are frequently covered by insurance.


 

Venous insufficiency is the cause of varicose veins and refers to an incompetent vein inside your leg that you can’t see. Varicose veins are branches coming off of this poorly functioning vein. The good news is that these are unimportant vessels. With that in mind, traditional, painful “stripping” techniques are now replaced by “ablation procedures” that close down these veins.

Vein ablation is a technique used to close or shut off a vein. An ablation can be carried out using heat devices, injecting special medications, or through the use of other medical procedures. All varicose vein treatments are guided with ultrasound for precision, accuracy, and safety.
