30 million Americans suffer from Varicose Veins. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the legs no longer function properly. This causes blood to pool in the legs. these veins are often raised above the skin and can look like twisted bulging cords. Varicose veins may cause pain, aching and discomfort in the legs. If left untreated varicose veins may progress to a more serious disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Without treatment, some people with CVI may experience symptoms that can be debilitating and can significantly impact quality of life, including leg or ankle swelling, leg fatigue, skin changes, rashes, ulcers, open wounds or sores.
Dr. Jason Klein is able to treat these veins with targeted endovenous therapy. This is a minimally invasive treatment using radiofrequency ablation or heat to seal off the affected vein so the blood gets re-routed to other veins.
