Video Overview

Many people think that only women get varicose veins. In reality, one fourth of the patients that come to the clinic are men. Men have varicose veins and spider veins just like women, with the exception that their level of disease is usually more far advanced. They have to be brought in here by their wives or their loved ones and seek treatment at a later time with a more advanced disease than women.
