Venous Insufficiency Care

Venous insufficiency is more than just unsightly varicose veins or spider veins. It can cause pain, swelling, fatigue, skin discoloration, fibrosis, and even ulcers. It also contributes to cellulitis and DVTs.

For mild symptoms, conservative measures are usually adequate. These would include the use of compression stockings, leg elevation, walking for exercise, and over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen.


If conservative measures are not adequate, minimally invasive procedures such as thermal ablation using a laser or radio frequency device, microfoam sclerotherapy, or ambulatory phlebectomy may be necessary.

Thankfully, modern treatments are fast, safe, and effective. Most issues can be treated in the office with little or no downtime and very minimal risk.
