Varicose vein treatments are advisable if the condition is causing discomfort or if you just don’t like the way your legs appear. If advanced disease is present in the form of severe edema and skin ulcerations, then treatment is essential. Treatment is not advisable if severe peripheral vascular arterial disease is present in the affected limb as well. Evaluation and treatment of the arterial problem may need to occur before treatment of the vein disease is possible.
Dr. Klein encourages you to schedule a consultative appointment with his office to determine the severity of your varicose veins and if treatment is advisable.
