Treatment for Varicose Veins at Washington Township Medical Foundation
Both men and women suffer from varicose veins. In fact, the National Institutes
of Health estimates that approximately 60% of men and women suffer from
some type of vein disorder. Varicose veins are blood vessels move blood
from the heart to the legs, but are in fact only a superficial venous
system, with the true system working underneath. This means that surface-level
varicose veins may be safely removed should they begin to cause problems.
Some patients opt for medical procedures to address varicose veins; others
may attempt making lifestyle chances to see if these adjustments provide
results. Ask your doctor which course of action and / or treatment is
right for you.
