Lifestyle adjustments for treating varicose veins, such as elevating the legs and exercising when possible, might not be enough to relieve pressure and pain. The condition of some varicose veins – and the discomfort they cause – may make vein removal appropriate.
Using an outpatient procedure that requires anesthesia, Blank Vascular Center surgeons are able to clamp off a seriously varicose vein. They then remove it in sections or in one piece. Vein removal also may be used to treat chronic venous insufficiency.
