Welcome to the VEIN CENTER at University Medicine and Cardiology where we focus exclusively on the treatment of varicose veins!
Varicose veins are one of the most frequently treated venous diseases. It is estimated that about 40% of all adults will get varicose veins at some point in their lives.
Although they are more common in older people, young people sometimes have them too. And, varicose veins are more common in women than in men.
Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged or diseased. As a result, vein valves will not close properly, leading to symptoms of: Varicose Veins, Pain, Swollen Limbs, Restless Legs, Leg Heaviness & Fatigue, Skin Changes, Ulcers, and Itching.
Many factors contribute to the presence of venous reflux disease, including: Age, Gender, Family History, Heavy Lifting, Multiple Pregnancies, Obesity, and Standing Professions.
