Varicose Vein Treatment: Conservative Therapy Options



Healthy veins carry blood from the extremities back to the heart, where it becomes oxygenated, and then circulates throughout the body again. Sometimes, vein walls and valves become weak, and that allows blood to flow backward or pool in the vein, which causes the telltale twisted, blue veins known as varicose veins. Many people may think that varicose veins are just a cosmetic concern, but that’s a big misconception. In fact, most cases of varicose veins are caused by a condition known as venous insufficiency, which can lead to more serious problems if not treated.

For many patients, the most effective varicose vein treatment will be a minimally invasive procedure like sclerotherapy, ablation or phlebectomy. However, insurance companies often require patients to try more conservative varicose vein treatment options first, before other procedures will be covered.
