Do you experience...
- Leg discomfort or heaviness?
- Skin discoloration?
- Venous Ulcers?
- Varicose Veins?
The word origin and history of the word "varicose" is indeed an ancient one. Derived from the Latin word varicosus "full of dilated veins," varicose veins have been a nuisance that has plagued mankind for a very long time. How long? Hipprocates, the father of Western medicine, had been known to come across this age-old vexation.
While operation has traditionally been the primary treatment for varicose veins, advancements in technology today offers a myriad of solutions for complete removal of varicose veins, most via non-surgical methods.
At St. John's Vein Center, we offer complete privacy, respect, and satisfaction to those who are suffering from varicose veins. We do this by a number of treatments and procedures:
- VNUS Closure Procedure
- Endovenous Chemical Ablation
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
More than an estimated 72% of females and 42% of adult males have developed varicose veins after the age of sixty.
