Procedures & Services

Treatment Options
Our board-certified physicians use the latest procedures when treating venous disease. As a result, our patients experience higher success rates, fewer complications, and a much lower rate of recurrence. It’s no wonder thousands of people have made Intermountain Vein Center their first choice to eliminate their varicose veins.

To better understand venous disease, it is important to know the purpose and functions of the veins in your body. Healthy veins pump blood back to the heart through valves that stop the blood from flowing in the opposite direction. Sometimes these valves become weakened allowing blood to flow backward and pool inside the veins. The result is a high pressure build-up inside the veins leading to venous disease.
