Remove Varicose Veins for Health Reasons

More than being not very attractive on a patient’s leg, varicose veins range from tiny red veins to larger “road map” veins and the big bulging veins that can cause heavy, tired or achy legs.

The Vein and Laser Center at Saint Francis Medical Center provides clinically proven, minimally invasive ways to treat varicose veins with little discomfort and quicker recovery times for the patient.

Options to treat varicose veins include sclerotherapy (injections), phlebectomy (removal of large surface veins) and laser ablation of the poorly functioning veins.

“The minimally invasive treatment is able to clear varicose veins within days or weeks,” says Colleen Moore, MD, FACS, RPVI, vascular surgeon, Saint Francis Medical Partner. “There’s virtually no pain or scarring. And, it’s done on an outpatient basis.”
