It's shorts season!

Many people feel insecure in shorts due to varicose veins.


Varicose veins are a common problem, generally appearing as twisting, bulging rope-like cords under the skin, usually on the legs. Varicose veins can cause aching and feelings of fatigue as well as skin changes like rashes, redness, and sores. As many as 40 million Americans, most of them women, have varicose veins. From unsightly blemishes to more severe conditions causing phlebitis or unrelenting swelling and ulceration, our physicians provide patients with safe, high-quality care and are able to identify any underlying or additional health conditions that they may not otherwise be aware of. Spider veins are mild varicose veins and look like a nest of red or blue lines just under your skin. Spider veins are not a serious medical problem. For some people varicose and spider veins are merely an aesthetic problem, while for others they can cause pain, cramping or itching. Varicose veins can develop into more serious problems if left untreated. The experts at Midwest Aortic and Vascular Institute can help determine the cause of your symptoms and the best treatment option for your varicose veins. We specialize in the latest minimally invasive, state-of-the-art techniques for the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Experience the new non-surgical solutions performed by our board certified vein specialists in a relaxing environment. Some patients with coagulation problems have been told they cannot have treatment or they are fearful. Our surgeons have experience with a safe, yet aggressive approach for these patients. Patients are sometimes under the impression that treatment for varicose or spider veins won't be covered by insurance, but often there is a medical issue causing the issues and we can obtain authorization for the treatment.
