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.
