Conditions We Treat

Venous Disease

What is Venous Disease?

Venous disease is caused by abnormal veins. When vein vessels in the leg become damaged or weakened, blood in those veins flows backwards and causes veins to stretch, twist, and swell. This may lead to spider and varicose veins and in more severe cases, ulcers in the lower calf and ankle. If you have spider or varicose veins, you should request an appointment to determine if there is a problem to be treated or to receive a venous disease diagnosis and treatment.

Symptoms and Risk Factors

There are several venous disease symptoms that cause discomfort and pain. While most cases of varicose veins can be successfully controlled through dietary and lifestyle changes, some may require venous disease treatment either to reduce symptoms or improve appearance.


  • Swelling or heaviness in legs
  • Leg pain or cramping
  • Visible varicose or spider veins
  • Discoloration of skin
  • Dry or weeping eczema
  • Leg ulcers
  • Restless legs
