Venous disease is generally not life threatening, but can be a daily source of discomfort and anxiety for people.

For otherwise healthy individuals, venous disease may keep people from being active and/or participating in social activities. During the hot summer months when most people are wearing shorts – those with varicose veins are left feeling embarrassed and self conscious.

When veins are affected by reflux or blockage, they become varicose which simply means large and twisty. Spider veins are just tiny varicose veins. When venous disease progresses and the tissues get affected, swelling, skin discoloration, skin thickening and even open sores develop. We call this stage CVI, or Chronic Venous Insufficiency. There are several contributing factors for people suffering from venous insufficiency and they could be one or more of the following: heredity, gender, pregnancy, occupation, activity, age, weight, or injury.

You do not have to feel like you are alone. Over 40 million Americans suffer from venous disease and some do not realize how treatable their conditions are! Women are more likely to develop venous disease and if left untreated – can develop into something more serious. You may have gone to your primary care physician with complaints of leg pain, swelling, or something else with no relief or diagnosis. At Vein Specialists of the Carolinas all we do is veins. Our vein specialists have been diagnosing and treating people with vein disorders for many years with great success. Most patients with any level of venous insufficiency may be treated in our office with excellent results. Most evaluations and treatments are covered by health insurance.
