Varicose Vein treatment

 

Varicose Vein Treatment in Milwaukee

Varicose veins plague 35% of all people in the United States. Although many varicose veins are more of a cosmetic concern, they can lead to other vein-related health concerns.   There are simple, minimally invasive procedures that can be performed to help alleviate pain or help you to enjoy the activities you like to do.  Because of the possibility of leading to other vein-related issues, many procedures may be covered by insurance, depending on your symptoms and the procedure that is recommended during your evaluation.

Diagnosis & Treatment

It is important to see a vein specialist if you are having symptoms of varicose veins or if you are bothered by the appearance of your varicose veins.  Some life style changes may be recommended to help alleviate the symptoms of varicose veins such as not sitting or standing for long periods of time, elevating your legs and/or wearing compression stockings.  Your physician will set up a varicose vein treatment plan that is tailored to you.
