Video Overview

Is there a varicose vein cure? Varicose veins can be successfully treated with almost all patients getting symptomatic and/or cosmetic improvement when the entire treatment plan is carried out properly. Varicose vein disease is genetic for the most part and cannot usually be permanently cured. Maintenance checkups and treatment are recommended to keep the venous insufficiency and our pressure at a minimum. This differs for everybody, usually is once or twice a year after treatment with some patients requiring more frequent visits and others continue to do well for years without any treatment.
