Venous Diseases and Treatments
Set Up a Consultation
UW Health's Vein Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating venous disease, including varicose veins and spider veins.
What is venous disease?
Chronic venous disease is a condition that generally affects the veins in the legs which deliver blood to the heart. Left untreated, venous disease may cause swelling or pain or lead to worse problems such as blood clots or skin ulcers - ultimately affecting a person’s quality of life.
It is estimated that almost half of the adult female population are troubled by spider veins, varicose veins and general venous disease. Heredity, pregnancy, weight gain hormonal shifts and certain occupations may contribute to the formation of small veins that lie close to the surface of the skin.
UW Health's expert team of board-certified vascular surgeons use a variety of procedures to remove the protrusion of such veins. Our staff will find the appropriate procedure and technique for you, and we will carefully walk you through your treatment plan beforehand to ensure your comfort so you may return home with minimal pain, downtime, scarring and your desired results.
