ABOUT VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY
Venous insufficiency, the cause of varicose veins and spider veins, indiscriminately affects between 30–40 million Americans. Numerous factors including age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics or a history of DVT (blood clots) can increase the risk of developing this all-to-common and often underdiagnosed disorder. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes like exercising or taking regular breaks from prolonged sitting or standing to an array of minimally-invasive, outpatient procedures that close problem veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier ones.
