Varicose veins are enlarged or dilated veins, typically found in the legs. Varicosities occur when the valves in superficial veins malfunction, causing blood that should be moving toward the heart to move backward. After an initial screening, we can determine if you are a possible candidate for varicose vein treatment. Treatment options include EVLT, sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
Telangiectasias, or more commonly known as spider veins, are red, blue or purple web-like veins found close to the skin’s surface. The development of spider veins has been attributed to prolonged standing or sitting, weight gain, pregnancy, heredity and hormones. Sclerotherapy is effective in the treatment of spider veins.

Conditions we treat and service include but are not limited to: abdominal aortic aneurysms, cancer, hypertension and end-stage renal disease, liver disease, gastrostomy, osteoporosis, stroke and carotid disease, pulmonary embolism, trauma and uterine fibroids.
