Spider and varicose veins may cause you to choose pants over a cute skirt, but that’s not the only impact they could have. Those unsightly veins could be a signal of something more serious.
More than 25 million Americans suffer from some type of vein disorder – and early treatment can minimize issues that could affect your health later. Varicose veins are swollen veins visible on the skin’s surface that develop as a result venous insufficiency. This medical condition is more than just cosmetic – and that’s why you should trust your care to a vein surgeon, not just a clinic that addresses how your veins look but ignores the potential underlying problems.
The Vein Center at University Surgical Associates, a component of the USA Vascular Center, specializes in the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. With innovative non-surgical approaches to treating venous disease, we can help you look your best while ensuring you receive the best medical care possible.
Maybe it’s time for a physician to take a closer look your legs.
