Get connected to a vascular surgeon for vein care
While varicose veins aren't considered a serious medical condition, they can cause discomfort: rashes, burning sensations or a feeling of heaviness in the legs. In more severe cases, they can also lead to phlebitis — the swelling or inflammation of veins — or blood clots and skin ulcers. With many available treatments including non-invasive laser procedures, varicose veins can be safely removed.
Ascension’s vein care team starts with a physical exam and a conversation with you about your condition. They may also perform a duplex ultrasound to help rule out or detect deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
We offer a wide range of effective treatment options such as leg elevation practices, compression stockings, sclerotherapy, surgical vein stripping, thermal ablation and phlebectomy. Our vascular surgeons and specialists work closely with you to create a full, personalized care plan, so you can enjoy lasting relief and results.
